Jaro's bike ride to Le Volcan.......


A return to Le Volcan yesterday, only this time a bit more adventurous - I decided to try the last
5.5 km. of dirt road, inside the caldera, to the last of the three main lookout points.


Hated the dirt road, but the views were interesting.


Apparently the last eruption was in 2010, so the lava beds look fairly fresh....


 
Never get tired of bike rides above the clouds - heavenly......

  
Comments by Wikipedia:   This is a major tourist attraction on RĂ©union Island .  A high quality forestry road, followed by a good track, connects the highway of the plains in Bourg-Murat to the Bellecombe Pass, where a parking lot and a snack bar are available to visitors.
