If you want to avoid some french motorway riding on the A5 and A31, then this road will not only avoid the toll booths but it will give you a gem of a road. I rode from Troyes, south on the N71, which was great, and turned off at Chatillon sur Seine and found this little beauty.It starts out as the D928 and becomes the D428, but you stay on the same road. It is 60k of pure heaven, I saw 3 cars in an hour, bliss. Lots of twisting bends, some good straights and all surrounded by lush undulating scenery. A road that I am glad I did not miss.
