A guide to mountainbiking, cycling or walking the GTMC, Grande Travers e du Massif Central, in southern France, from Clermont-Ferrand in the Auvergne to Montpellier and S te on the Mediterranean. The GTMC is a long-distance mountain biking trail that crosses the entire Massif Central in France visiting all of the major regions, including the Auvergne with its chain of volcanic puys in the Monts-D me and Monts-Dore ranges, the C zallier plateau and the remote Margeride, home of the French Resistance in the Second World War, the high forested hills of the C vennes National Park, made famous by the Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, and finally the dry limestone hills bordering the coastal Mediterranean plain. Much of the route is off-road and uses many Grandes Randonn es, so it also makes an excellent walking route. Just over 700km in length it offers a challenge and a thorough exploration of one of southern France's most beautiful and historically interesting regions. The route is described in 17 stages, with maps for off-road and on-road routes, making it suitable for both expert and novice bikers, with full details of facilities and places of interest en route and other useful data for planning the trip.
