Many wine cellars for a post-ride treat.
The route climbs to the Col du Deb and then goes down to Rasteau, a beautiful little Provençal village with famous wine. The passage through the village is beautiful. Next is the climb towards and past Roaix. The increasing elevation offers beautiful views of the Drôme Provençale area, and the trails are secluded and nice.
There are no major difficulties but working gears and water/snacks are recommended.
The end of the route heads down to Cairanne and goes through the center of the village, which is typical for the area and similar to Rasteau with more wine to taste.
