Highlights

 
  • Try some of the best mountain bike routes in the Queyras area.

  • Ride mostly downhill for maximum enjoyment.

  • Enjoy the unique landscapes of the French Alps.

 

The Queyras is a beautiful valley located in the French Hautes-Alpes bordering Italy, and a prime destination for outdoor enthusiasts. Would you like to explore it on a mountain bike? Then come join me on this great mountain biking weekend!

Covering an area of 65,000 hectares, the Queyras Regional Nature Park is an unspoiled natural area with amazing forests, gorges and mountain lakes. Its has 354 km of cross-country trails surrounded by impressive mountains such as La Taillante, Le Grand Queyras and Le Pain de Sucre.  

On this mountain bike outing, we will ride on the best tracks in the Queyras region. We will cross some gorgeous spots such as the mountain passes of Col Agnel (2,744m) and Col d’Izoard (2,360m). The first one links the Queyras valley (Hautes-Alpes, France) with Pontechianale (Piedmont, Italy), and the second one is frequently included on the famous Tour de France route.  Finally, every afternoon we will come back to our comfortable chalet for some cold beer and delicious food. Additionally, for most of the uphill work we will use the minibus, so we can concentrate on the stunning descents! This program is a perfect option to have fun after a long working week!

So, if you are up for a weekend of amazing mountain biking in Queyras, please contact me. I’ll be glad to take you to some of the best bike routes in Southeast France!

And, if you are looking for a longer mountain bike adventure, take a look at my 6-day trip in the Ecrins.

I was disappointed. I was slower than the rest of the group reaching Tete Rousse, and the guide discouraged me from going to Gouter. I had a slight ankle sprain the day before which slowed my ascent. I recovered 95% the day after. My complaint: when I decided to go for a second guided attempt, at a slower pace, I received no help in securing a guide, or a reservation at Gouter. The online reservation showed fully booked both for Rousse and Gouter. But I know that there were lots of empty bunks at Rousse, and I suspect the same at Gouter. I received sympathy, but only as a formality. Initially I had sought a single dedicated guide, but I was encouraged to join a group. I did not get a choice.I should have known better, I knew my pace would be a bit slower, but I counted on your support and understanding. I got neither. I was on my own with no help.
