A long and tough ride, definitely not for softies. The climb from Plaisance to Lacaune is a cumulative approximate 900 meters over 42 kms, followed by a long but reasonably easy mountainous stretch of about 50 kms to and around the Raviege Lake and back to Lacaune. The lake area is beautiful and swimming in the cool clean water is possible at one of the few swimming beaches. La Salvetat Sur Agout at the end of the lake and at the return point, has, like Brousse, been classified as “One of the Most Beautiful Villages” in France. The last 43 kms from Lacaune are a mostly fast downhill to Plaisance!
