More of a "cross-countryer" or a "downhiller"? Mountain biking in the Ubaye Valley meets all your adrenaline needs!

The consistent waymarkers, which cover over 300 km, will lead you through the entire Valley taking you through wooded terrain, alpine meadows, tunnels, and villages where there is the possibility of cosy overnight lodgings. The trails are generally in excellent condition and regularly maintained.
