Mountain biking in the Verdon is really quite a program!

What a joy to indulge in Cycling in this region. Asphalt lovers already have something to get away from it all with the Gorges route, the Allos pass and many other interesting routes.

Regarding mountain biking, two of the most beautiful long courses in France intersect in Castellane. La Transverdon and the Chemins du Soleil. In addition, there are many shorter routes departing from Castellane and Saint André-les-Alpes.

Attention, we are in the Alpes de Haute Provence, it is the mountain! This means that it goes up strongly and that it goes down just as much. That’s why plan to be physically fit and come equipped with the right machine. For the others there is always the VTTAE.

Finally, in summer, unless you leave at daybreak, it is very hot for pedaling, much too hot! In conclusion; spring and autumn with its magnificent colors are more suitable for mountain biking.
