Mountain Biking in France

The French Alps at your feet while pedaling

In France, you will be surprised not only by the majestic Mont Blanc, but also by its incredible trails, lakes and forests that invite you to ride a bike and get as far as you can. Enter the Chamonix valley until you reach the small town of Le Tour and enjoy one of the best mountain biking experiences you will ever have. If you like adrenaline, you should go to Iseré, where there is a ski resort that has the Crankworx mountain bike downhill track. Although it is not a technically difficult route, it is very challenging due to its great inclination, with 1650 meters of altitude, where you will obtain the fastest speed in two wheels.
