Cycling to Lac de l’Essourou

I still craved a ride northwest of my homebase of Lauzun, but I found the huge ridge climb west of Eymet daunting.

I would cycle with them westwards to the village of Eymet, leave them at the Carrefour Market, climb up to the village of Rouquette, explore the plateau, check out Lac de l’Essourou, and then drop back down into Eymet to follow the Dropt river east and back into Lauzun village…
