Typical routes to prepare for the Grand Raid 6666 or the Diagonale des Fous
Average duration: 20km (12.4miles)/1,100m+, 3h to 5h: Mons la Trivalle - Bardou - Col du Montahut - descent to Olargues until the Eiffel bridge, Voie Verte until Mons.
Interest: A fairly dynamic type of training, where part of the ascent allows you to trot and where the descents are not very traumatic. Ideal to start the next day on another ride.
We advise you to take your time on the descent from Olargues, preferring a good finish on the 4km (2.5miles) of very flat Voie Verte, with 2km (1.5miles) at 85% of your FCmax and then the last 2km (1.5miles) quietly.
Route: From Mons la Trivalle to Bardou, yellow and red GR de Pays signs. From Bardou to Montahut, white and red GR 7. At the top of Montahut, blue track slightly marked to the hamlet of Cros. Then road and study well the track at this place the objective being to join the Voie Verte for a flat final...
