Story by Den from Mourjou, France, submitted on 15/08/2012
For the pedantically minded (and also for those looking for the Col du Pertus on a map), it isn''t in Midi-Pyrenées as stated above but, like the whole of the Cantal, in the Auvergne.

It''s a fine ride, but quite tricky to find the entry from both Mandailles and from St Jacques les Blattes.
