Mountain biking

Mountain biking, another way to trek !


For all those who are keen on wide open spaces, from the Monts Jura to the Plateau de Retord, from the Valserine valley to the Pays de Gex, mountain bike paradise awaits you. Sporty holiday-makers will love riding down all types of paths, be they easy or steep.

At Monts Jura, a 25 mile loop has been marked out for expert cyclists, starting from Lélex.

Special information for downhill mountain biking:

Downhill mountain biking starts by taking the ski lift, in Lélex " Catheline cable car " and in Crozet " Fierney cable car "; so you can reach the very top easily and quickly, and make the most of the trip back down!

For the time being, there are no official trails, but mountain bikers are allowed to ride down the footpaths, provided they give priority to walkers. Please remain extremely vigilant when riding on these footpaths.
