Cycling and mountain biking
With almost 260 kilometres of routes (the equivalent of a Paris-Lille trip, or 6.5 times around Lake Annecy), the Vallée des Belleville is an exceptional playground for all cycling enthusiasts... but also for those who will soon become one!
Areas dedicated to cycling in all its forms
The Ludizone in La Croisette
An area 100% dedicated to the initiation to mountain biking: downhill, banked turns on natural or wooden terrain, bumps, arches, small jumps... Alone or accompanied by an instructor, everyone will be able to train at their best and have fun on this natural playground modelled on the mountain relief, before venturing out for good on the valley's trails!
This mini bike park consists of 4 courses of increasing difficulty (green, blue, red, black). An area for draisies including an obstacle course is also provided for the youngest, from 18 months, to learn how to balance or manage the turns while having fun.
The Kidzone in Plan de l’eau des Bruyères
In Les Menuires, a signposted mountain bike site is reserved for children, from 7 years old. On the programme, several types of modules to tame for budding riders: crossing streams, small bridges or single track. Because the love of mountain biking can be learned from a very young age! Free access.

This new cycle path is accessible to families on electric bikes as well as to accomplished cyclosportifs. It is exclusively dedicated to bicycles and remains off the pedestrian path. Winding along the ridges, cyclists are alone in the world, facing a breathtaking panorama.
