A very attractive tour that partly follows the magnificent Bisse de la Tsandra irrigation channel to reach the Mayens de My. The descent includes an exhilarating flowing ride through the forest.

Schöne Tour mit viel Abwechslung, Waldwege, Pfade, Asphalt und gut ausgebaute Abfahrt durch den Wald ( für jeden machbar der gerne bisschen neben der Strasse fährt )
