Apres votre petit dejeuner, vous vous dirigez vers Aubrac un plateau volcanique que traverse le chemin de pelerinage de Saint-Jaques de Compostelle. Vous roulez a moto en dessous du viaduc rouge de Garabit construit par la maison Eiffel. Au coeur du paysage de l’Aubrac vous admirez les burons, petites maisonnettes en pierre recouvertes de lauzes ou d’ardoise ainsi que les vieilles fermes de montagne. Le paysage est typique authentique: c’est un vrai bonheur de le traverser a moto. Vous dejeunez a Chaudes Aigues puis decouvrez ses sources d’eau chaudes sulfurees. Vous vous elancez dans les gorges de la Truyere et passez de barrage en barrage. Vous atteignez Estaing en bordure du Lot, votre etape pour la nuit.
