Hi Magnon

I may be interested, but want to get a bit more riding in beforehand as I have two weeks off. My mother-in-law has a house in Aubeterre sur Drone near Riberac, do you know of or know anyone who has knowledge of some good trails around that area? Cheers buddy

Hi Harty,

I seem to remember having a similar conversation about Aubeterre sur Dronne some time back but I don't know what we decided.

I've had a look at the maps (IGN serie bleue 1734O, 1734E, 1735O and 1735E) and, although there doesn't seem to be much around Aubeterre, if you go south of St. Aulaye which is abouth 10km from AsD there is a huge forest area (foret de la Double - 50,000hectares) which certainly looks worth exploring - you could probably get lost in there for a week. I don't know anyone over that way who would be able to show you around but I think you'd be fine with the maps.

After a lengthy diary updating/holiday planning session with Mrs UT last night, I think this might just work - could you stick me on the list please Magnon

Hi Harty
We were just North of there last week, plenty of riding but not overly exciting but then we'd spent the week before in Lozere and around Rocamadour :-)
Will mail you the track logs, is MMO files OK?

Cheers, Rob

Hi Magnon,

Can you put me on the list as well? 950 Adventure, probably.

Bonjour

Hi all, especially those I know.
I think you need a frenchy in the group, non? Just in case we must talk to the local authorities
Magnon, can you put me on the optional list, as I will may be in examination at this period...If I pass the written part in aprl (results end of may), the oral part of the exam would be around those dates...then no enduro in this case.
I'll let you know.
Mat (DRZ400)

PS: after reading the whole thing, it happens there should at least already be 2 frenchies in.

Chances are that the trails will be dry (with the odd muddy bit) so a TKC type tyre that gives a good road mileage should suit.
