Almost 3,000km of trails to enjoy by bike or mountain bike!
Getting on your bike to discover this vast region so marked by mountains, water and nature, you’ll find all the ingredients to help you forget the stresses of contemporary life. While France’s Alpine ranges are such a joy to explore by bike or mountain bike, with iconic passes, summits and high-altitude lakes, don’t ignore the cycling potential of the Massif Central – its volcanoes, high plateaux, lakes and racing rivers are so many attractions for a mountain-biking adventure, for example on the GTMC or the Grande Traversée de l'Ardèche VTT, or on a biking tour of the Cantal Mountains. Former railway lines converted into greenways, such as Via Fluvia or Dolce Via, prove a delight for family cycling. Lyon, regional capital, plus a French capital of gastronomy, is a town to relish, along ViaRhôna cycle route, or reaching the end of La Voie Bleue. All told, this is a region to satisfy all tastes for those seeking to get away by bike.
