    Ride report

    Pete & Geoff set off early Friday morning with my bike and Kit already pre loaded in Petes Van. I took the easier route flying from Stanstead into Limoge Airport. Torsten picked me up from the airport followed by a 40 minute drive to their house/mansion.

    The northern Monkeys arrived late on saturday morning after a detour to the wrong place !!


    Torsten and Ro made me very welcome. These guys gave up their City jobs a couple of years ago for the rural life in france.

    Pete and Geof arrived early evening. We took the dinner option of going into the 'local' town 5 km away. It was a Friday night, everything was closed except a hotel/restaurant. In hindsight a mistake and should have eaten back at the house.

    The food prepared by Ro was excellent. Four course evening meal and a full english breakfast.

    Accomodation very comfortable, I had my own room away from Geoff's snoring.

    The riding was mostly forest and single track, covering about 200km per day good pace, definitely the best riding I have ever done.


    I would totally recomend staying and riding with http://www.ridelimousin.com/

    we will be going back later in the year. any one else want to join us ?

    Fantastic place, riding was superb and the two hosts were the best owners I've ever had the privilege of staying with.

    Top marks all round for this one, highly recommended

    The riding was great and the food, host's and room all spot on. Only problem was the sound of Geoff in the night!! Will look to go back in September again. Easy days drive there simple five days in total great holiday.

    The Creuse is one of my favourite places and full of decent trails. Looks like you got around a bit. Can you post some details of the routes you took?

    Tempted by that as was astonished to see it's located close to La Sout where my sis in law and family moved to 8 years ago. Been out there a few times and often thought about taking the GS over there whilst wife flies

    Don't miss the monthly food market in La Sout, with it's wonderful array of artisan breads, cold meats, delicious cheeses and the Brit stall selling to the ex-pats, Bacardi Breezers, Walkers crisps and Smash Instant Mash

    Thanks for all the positive comments about the food, accommodation and lanes, makes it all worthwhile!
