Fabulous fun trip to Velo Vercours - family mountain biking trip. We were a bit concerned that our youngest (8) would find the hills a bit challenging, but he did extremely well, and I kept the younger one on a bike seat. Found some good muddy mountain bike tracks, but also enjoyed the (new to us) road cycling. Great to have routes planned that would keep the family entertained - cycling to a waterfall, visiting amazing caves, a wacky garden, houses hanging off high cliffs, and also learning about the prehistoric people and the brave folk of the French resistance in excellent museums. And of course lots of wonderful scenery - especially the Combe Laval, which now features in the helmet cam video taken by my 8 year old. Roger and Teresa are great hosts, the gites have everything you need (including a good shower) and the swings and pool in the garden were a great hit with the kids. Highly recommended.
