“The Big 8″ from Molines – St Véran
To warm up your legs and blow away the cobwebs, departing from the gîte alternating passages through forests and on super fun trails going up and going down ! After this ride, you should start to get an idea of what’s in store for the rest of the tour! During this first outing we advise you to take the time to work on your technique with your guide (particularly the uphill sections on an e-MTB) so you can get the best from the rest of your E-MOUNTAIN BIKE TOUR…
On Day 2 we give it all to you!
Today we set off on an All Mountain Enduro adventure in the Queyras. A super fun uphill section through the woods in e-MTB mode, some elevated passages and nothing but top quality trails all day, with a bonus lunch stop in a restaurant ….who could ask for more ?

A short drive to Abries to discover the High Guil area and it’s old trade paths between Italy and the Queyras. (To economise the battery it’s possible to take the lift up). Located in the Valpreyvère Valley, with super fast techy trails ideal for perfecting your technique, a sweet descent and the afternoon chilling out to prepare you for tomorrows epic ebike ride.
