Join me for a mini-stay of electric mountain bike rides and relaxation in Gap in the Hautes-Alpes.
You will have the opportunity to discover the beautiful landscapes of the Southern Alps, the heritage of the surroundings of Gap, as well as nice mountain bike trails.
This activity is accessible to all and the well-being is there! The hills are no longer synonymous with suffering. Thanks to the electric assistance that allows to dose your efforts according to your physical capacity and your desires, you can exceed your limits. Even if the group is heterogeneous, this system allows everyone to have fun!
Electrically assisted mountain biking is a booming activity that you may love! So, come and discover or improve your mountain bike riding! It is also a good alternative for people with knee problems.
Note: if you have a group and you want to manage your meals, it is possible! The price of the self-catering stay is 205€ per person.
If you prefer a two-day formula, I also offer this mountain bike activity over a weekend.
It is possible to arrive at the lodge the day before for more comfort, for a supplement of 65€.
D1: Mountain bike ride around Gap.
Departure from the lodge at 3pm to ride around the villages above Gap. We take paths adapted to your level, via small tarred roads, forest tracks or more technical paths for the most daring.
We pass by Châteauvieux, with its woods and its black marls, to go up towards Pelleautier, via its fields and its lake, to go down again towards the crests of Tallard, with its castle and its airfield.
This route will allow you to discover the local heritage.
D2: Mountain bike ride on the heights of Gap.
Departure at 9.30am for a mountain bike ride on the heights of Gap, via a balcony path offering a panoramic view on the Gap region.
We pass by the waterfalls of the castle of Charance, we cross the viaduct of Buzon and the small village of Romette. Then, we go up on the other side to reach the hill of Saint-Mens that we discover through the undergrowth.
We return home via the village of Châteauvieux, following a varied itinerary, mixing small, very rolling paths with more technical ones.
D3: Mountain bike ride and nice downhills.
Departure at 9.30am for a ride on the Sainte-Marguerite hill. Then, we switch to the Sentinelle pass with a panoramic view on the Gapençais basin and the Écrins massif in the background.
After a short break near the educational farm, we set off again along wide rolling paths to climb to Puy Maurel and Notre-Dame-du-Laus.
From there, we start a long descent towards the village of Rambaud, we cross many farms and sumptuous landscapes. From this village, we take a small single trail well known by all the locals because it is very nice and funny.
The return will be done by the hill of Saint-Mens on one of the ways of Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle, by following a small very sympathetic trail.
After these "assisted" 3 days, I think that you will love it!
