A trip to Bonnette pass



had a jump on the top this time



to have a look on future tracks to do around, like this one





or this one down I look for few years  ;) (a marvelous view from this road to the Bonnette)



AT is ready  VCIF_ThumbUp



it was a military zone on the border between Italy and France



Have a look on the tracks I'll take in September

Have made  a small trip in Val d'Escreins



and quickly leave tarmac for gravel





leaving the bike to walk a little bit



not too much water in the river



we arrive at an abandoned village

You can have some information about next edition (sept 2018) here ; and perhaps meet some of you; a lot of chance, I'll go back this year  VCIF_ThumbUp

A lot of exhibitors were present...

After festival we decided with Christophe to have some fun on Bayasse track.
I leave the resort with cold conditions




Beginning of the road to Cayolle pass.





And we leave the main road to begin the track  VCIF_ThumbUp





it became harder



and we need a little stop







The XT is no so easy then the AT, but it arrive



it is wild and stunning



better view on how is the track









Arriving moutière pass , this part on the right will be done on the afternoon



end of the track is easier, can use 2nd & 3rd gear





military places all around
