Description

Electric mountain biking is a new activity that allows you to combine the joys of cycling and the discovery of the territory. Guided by a mountain leader also mountain bike instructor, it's like having two trips in one!

Nothing too technical, I offer easy level outings for beginners or mountain bike riders who want to get back to cycling and discover a new way of hiking...

On the program of this outing taking place in the heart of the Hautes-Alpes: the best cycling routes, spectacular mountain landscapes, the atmosphere of larch forests and villages of Queyras.

In one word: the unmissable of the Queyras massif!

Program

After a re-launching outing to discover your new bike and make a reminder of the technical bases necessary to evolve in confidence on your mtb, we will go together to discover the essential of Queyras:

D1: Valley of Aigues.
A beautiful day of warm-up to discover the typical villages of Pierre Grosse, Molines-en-Queyras and Saint-Véran (I will take the time to make the visit), followed by an excursion in the valley of the Blanche. There you will admire the glacier lakes nestled at the foot of the Tête des Toillies and its renovated refuge where we will have the chance to taste a blueberry pie and enjoy the sun before descending between pastures and larch forest.

D2: Souliers / Roue lake.
You are in the limestone Queyras, and you will climb to dominate the imposing castle of Fort-Queyras and access the hidden valley of Souliers. You take the time to admire the beautiful Roue lake, which changes color every season. It's the middle of the stay so we make you happy: lunch in refuge today!

D3: The valleys of Ceillac.
The two valleys of Ceillac are unmissable and are often considered the best place for an electric mountain bike ride. You go for a hike in front of the massif of Font Sancte, the summit of the Queyras massif, between extraordinary torrents that can make the occasion of a small bathing, forests, remarkable geology and villages outside time that remind us of the good life that we have in the Queyras.

D4: The valley of Haut Guil.
Departure from the village of Abries towards the mythical Viso, 3841 meters high, and located just across the Italian border. Picnic in the valley of Haut Guil and if you still have the time and energy, we will take the opportunity to go to ride the other direction and visit the hamlets of the valley of Valpreveyre.

D5: Alpine life and panoramas...
To end the week, we will try to climb to find a beautiful alpine ambience, to be sure to find beautiful panoramas and remind our biking week. As you have obviously progressed, I will perhaps take you on some beautiful single tracks to finish the week…
