Discover mountain biking trails in the Vaud Alps
Mountain bike routes: adventure, sport and nature
Go on a mountain bike adventure on the trails of the Vaud Alps!
An ideal sport for nature lovers, mountain biking is a complete sport. It offers so many pleasures but it will test to the limit the thighs of any out-of-practice cyclist. Yet happiness often comes at the end of a climb where you reach that special viewpoint, a lake or a refreshment bar that rewards all your efforts.
When you are on a bike, your field of vision is unrestricted. You cross a forest, pass a century-old Alpine chalet, cycle alongside an Alpine lake; the landscapes are beautiful and varied. Take your foot off the pedal and contemplate what lies ahead, admire the bird of prey that’s gliding above! Why not visit a point of interest while you’re on your two-wheel adventure?
And what’s more, the routes have no or very little traffic.
