South and Centre of France, North Spain (Oct-Nov '18)

Hello everyone! I am Matias, 29, Argentinian. I have been cycling in France for 3 months now (but I don't only do biking, I am doing whatever its up there to explore and learn about the places I go) and on the beginning of October I will start near Marseille to do a bit the Euro Velo 8 to Toulouse, then I will head north near Clermont-Ferrand, La Rochelle, Bordeaux and then Galicia (following Camino de Santiago probably). The named cities are only to have a reference point, I care mostly about the natural areas on the way.

Wild camping mostly, then some CS and WS.

Let me if you are around and want to share some parts with me! :)

Ride safe! 

Mati

Through Auvergne

Hey!

I will be back in Auvergne and more precisely in Aubazat a small village Haute-Loire from the 27 october for around a week.

I grew up in this village and will stay here for some days.

I can show you around a bit and host you if you go through this area.

Have a nice trip

Marius

re:I love Galicia

Hey! I just arrived in Lisbon where I am finishing my 6 months trip. Didn't go to Galicia as I was getting a bit cold...

Managed to do this route:
