What better way to enjoy the beautiful mountain scenery in summer than by bike?
Whether you are a beginner, an amateur or a professional cyclist, the Savoyard panoramas will no longer hold any secrets for you. This is an activity that is still not widely practised in the mountains, but you may have had the opportunity to discover it on television over the years thanks to the beautiful images of the Tour de France in Savoie.
A real interlude during the summer, the mountains are good for you. With sunshine, fresh air, wide open spaces and a continuous impression of infinity, your holiday at altitude will allow you to disconnect from your daily routine and refocus on your body and mind's need to escape. Cycling will give you the opportunity to practice an outdoor sport activity while admiring the landscapes that go by in front of you.
Alone, with friends or with the family, from our establishments Montagnettes, there are several cycling routes for all levels of sportsmenand women.
