Looking for tips and riders in the Dorgogne region of France and Alpe du Huez

My wife and I are coming to the Dordogne region of France the first week of September. I have some preliminary ideas of towns and lodging but I would love to talk with locals and or others who have toured this region. I will need good route maps and it would be great if we could find some locals or other tourists to ride with.

Sept 10-13 we will drive across france to Alpe du huez and climb this legend on our tandem.

send your email address to I think I have a summary of 10 great days in Dordogne/Lot region in 2004(?) - we did bikes on auto and cycled out of cheap hotels and hostels rather than touring. One of the best times of my life.

Used Michelin and (IGN?) road maps. Plenty of detail. Michelin shows incline % with >, >>, >>> signs. Alp D'Huez will be >>>>, I guess.
