This is a relatively easy ride starting with a mostly downhill stretch to the Tarn and then along the Tarn river for most of the distance followed by a fairly gentle uphill through cool forest back to the Magnolias.  The stop at Brousse is a must even if just for a quick delicious cappuccino at the restaurant’s outdoor terrace at the foot of the Romanesque bridge.  A visit to the Chateau followed by lunch at the Relais de Chasteau makes this a favourite easy daytrip ride.
