We've set a trap for you.... If you've arrived on this page, it's because you're about to embark on an all-mountain bike raid worthy of the name, which will make you addicted to the Southern Alps! The Queyras, the Valle Maira and the Valle Stura during the same stay, you greedy bunch!
Beautiful scenery already, following the foothills of the Ubaye on the Italian side, with its vertiginous mountains and perched hamlets... With a departure from the Izoard pass and an arrival in the valley located at the foot of the Larche pass, it announces the colour... Only good stuff!
Contrary to the enduro formula where logistical support is required, this trip alternates long climbs with long descents, forest tracks but also more technical high altitude singles, mountainous and very alpine atmospheres... In a few words, this is an all-pedal itinerary for adventurers who like to tire themselves out, who have a good mountain riding technique and who do not wish to put one foot in a vehicle during their holidays.
Ah, we almost forgot to tell you about it, what a good meal we will have during this trip! With the gargantuan meals prepared by our Italian partners, accompanied by a good glass of Barbera d'Alba served generously by the owner!
