Nice route. I agree with the advice to ride against the clock.
If the legs are not so good anymore at the end, then Col de Pontis can be exchanged for the D-road along the water.
One part was a real disappointment: the D900B and D900. Real horror how many trucks and other traffic pass by. As quiet as it is on the 'north side', it was mega busy there. Big contrast.
The annoying thing is that there is not really an alternative. Knowing in advance helps and further: pedalling extra hard to leave that part behind you quickly.

Mooie route. Ben het eens met het advies om tegen de klok in te rijden.
Zijn de benen op het eind niet meer zo goed, dan kan Col de Pontis ingeruild worden voor de D-weg langs het water.
Eén stuk viel ronduit tegen: de D900B en D900. Echt horror zoveel vrachtwagens en ander verkeer daar voorbij komen. Zo rustig als het aan de 'noordzijde' is, zo megadruk was het daar. Groot contrast.
Het vervelende is alleen dat er niet echt een alternatief is. Vooraf weten helpt en verder: extra hard trappen om dat stuk snel achter je te laten.

A beautiful ride!
Cycled together with my girlfriend on a beautiful day in September.
The whole area is worthwhile anyway and we stayed there for a few days

Een pracht rit!
Samen met mijn vriendin gefietst op een mooie dag in September
De hele omgeving is trouwens de moeite waard en we zijn er enkele dagen gebleven

What a wonderful ride! We were in a cottage at the northeast corner of the round and did it counter-clockwise. Quietly with lots of Kodak moments fat 5 hours over it and it was enjoyable.
Col de Pontis is tough but varied. Lovely quiet roads in mid-October. The downside is that few pavement cafes are open along the route then.

Wat een prachtrit! We zaten in een huisje aan de noordoosthoek van de ronde en hebben hem tegen de wijzers van de klok in gedaan. Rustig aan met veel Kodak-moments dikke 5 uur over gedaan en het was genieten.
Col de Pontis is pittig, maar afwisselend. Half oktober heerlijk rustige wegen. Nadeel is dat er aan de route dan weinig terrasjes open zijn.
