Just a reminder to anyone travelling down for the classic on the back roads route, that from 1st July French minor roads that used to have a speed limit of 90, now are limited to 80 (just under 50mph).

When I drove down for the 24, my sat nav ( Garmin ) was already showing the new speed limits on relevant stretches of road.

My understanding is that this covers more than back roads.
The old N138 is included as are all the old route nationals.
If it's a single lane in each direction with no barrier in between then it's 80 kph.

Half of penisheads are already expressing the "I don't care I am English" card.

TBH I generally travel well below the limit anyway
