In praise of minor roads: the D227

​If you’re on a bike, and aren’t in a rush, it’s always worth trying out side roads that you don’t know. I’ll admit that in Devon, side roads can be a bit of a lottery (pot holes, gravel, grass growing in the middle of the road, and cow dung are frequent hazards), but in France, the success rate, and unexpected pleasures, usually make the ‘diversion’ worthwhile.

Today’s short diversion was the D227 from Aspremont towards Sigottier. (I’ve previously gone on the main road to Serres.) Much nicer than the rather busy and dull main D1075, and being a little higher, it afforded splendid views along its short length, including one of the amazing rock formation at Sigottier, through which a river and road pass.
