Between the Hautes-Alpes and the Alpes de Haute Provence, we will discover the little nuggets hidden around the Serre-Ponçon lake, the largest lake in the PACA region.
Azure blue skies, snow-capped mountains in the background, beech forests resplendent in spring, turbulent mountain streams flowing from the peaks of the Ecrins National Park, ... Add to this the ubiquitous turquoise colour of the lake and you have a colourful postcard for your next cycling holiday

With 300 days of sunshine a year and a rather contemplative atmosphere, the tour of the Serre-Ponçon lake by mountain bike is definitely an ideal destination to start the season!
