Mérignac - Gourdon (FR)

Route Number 79 (196 km)
2013 trip from Bordeaux to Marseille. Broken into two pieces since we jumped a train from Gourdon to Carcassonne to avoid a few rainy days. Good move.

The trip is done! Great time had by all. As noted above, we skipped the Lot section south to Carcassonnes due to weather, so got to the Med a little more quickly. To compensate we added a few extra stops - Nimes and Avignon. Beats riding in the rain!

More prep. Mirror, small lights, gloves and a cool Sugoi jacket where the sleeve comes off held wiht magnets! I like magnets as you know. I will be like a male stripper and just rip that shit off. LOL. http://www.sugoi.com/usa/versa-jacket-31.html

More changes - cutting east from Cahors along the Lot, then south towards Carcassonne and the coast. Adds a little distance and elevation.

Made some changes to this route based on input from others. Now going along the Dordogne out of Bordeaux and then cutting south through Cahors and Carcassonnes. Lots of great feedback.
