A landscape of steppes and moors as far as the eye can see forms the case of this accessible to everyone ride on the southern Larzac. In the middle, a jewel : the templar village of La Couvertoirade.
Folllowing rolling tracks and single-track trails, this family loop takes you to the heart of the Larzac and its agropastoral tradition. The cobbled watering place of La Baraque Froide, the typical farms of Gaillac and La Salvetat, the village of La Couvertoirade, one of the most beautiful villages of France, mark this route. Fill up on great outdoors!
