Programme

Schedule of the day

The mountain bike route of the Tour du Pic is 40 kilometres long.

Starting from Ganges, you will go through the Vis gorges in the direction of Saint-Laurent-le-Minier and then begin the ascent of the Baraquette pass.

At the pass, the track gives way to a single track, a narrow path. This passage is technical with small steps and sections requiring a good control of the piloting. You will then find a wide track when you arrive on the Anjeau plateau.

Take a short detour through the impressive porch of the Anjeau cave. Enjoy the freshness of the place and explore the vast rooms. You will be captivated by this underground world. Enter the depths of the earth. Once you have finished, you can get back on your mountain bikes and start the descent down to the bottom of the Vis gorges.

Take a break for a swim at the Vis waterfall before heading back to Ganges. During this refreshing stage, keep an eye on your gear and your bikes.

This ride combines technical sections, easy trails, a visit to the cave and the opportunity to rest at the waterfalls. Tempting, isn’t it? Don’t forget to bring a picnic if you want to take a break.
