Cycling Castillonnes and the Dropt River Valley

Fog—le brouillard—is considered dangerous for cycling here. But it’s not the fog, they tell me, it’s the drivers in the fog who scream along the Dordogne’s narrow, winding roads.

I’d read that the fog would lift later in the morning, so I don a bright red jacket, set my Knog Blinder bike lights to retina-piercing, and proceed for a loop ride towards the village of Castillonnes, east of my home base of Lauzun.
