Activities - Cycling
ATB: (all terrain bikes): For lovers of mountain biking, there are numerous signposted VTT (Vélo Tout Terrain) trails. They are often categorised into difficulty levels, equal to those in skiing: black, red, blue, and green. This way you can use your experience to the difficulty level of the mountains. The green trails are ideal for the whole family. Did you get caked in mud? No problem, we have a wash area for you to clean your bicycles and a covered area to park them. We also have a small workshop for essential repairs.
The real climb fanatics will be in their element here. There are many challenging mountain passes in the Vosges, famous names like: Grand Ballon (1424m), and the Ballon d’Alsace (1178m). But there is much more to cycling in the Vosges than exhausting climbs! A very varied landscape rolls ahead of you, extensive forests, gorgeous views, typical Vosges farms, picturesque villages to name but a few.
La Voie Verte: Do you prefer a more flat route? La Voie Verte is a route that leads over a tarmac cycle path. (Actually they are 2 routes of 80 km all together). A path that used to be a railway track which now is exclusively for bicycles, and inline skaters, and in the winter it is used as a cross country ski trail.
