We are extremely proud of our the Lozerien Bis, and love riding it – but it isn’t for everyone! From the outset we wanted to create our most technical route and we are delighted to have achieved that goal. Made up of three loops starting and finishing in Mende, the distances aren’t excessive (approx. 150 kilometres per day) but the going is pretty demanding, with the sheer density of technical going making the Lozerien Bis a challenging ride. The reward is some absolutely stunning scenery, some great lunch stops and the knowledge that you have tackled terrain that has, in the past, been used to tax some of the greatest enduro riders in the world. Very much a case of ‘beware what you wish for’ we strongly recommend you give us a ring before you sign up for this trip, to make sure you aren’t about to bite off more than you can chew!
