VTT dans les Monts de Guéret

A paradise for mountain-bike enthusiasts: the Monts de Guéret FFC Mountain Bike site offers 720 kms of marked paths (37 green, blue, red or black circuits) for you to choose from depending on your level. Watch out for the gradients, often very steep and technical. You can also train on a downhill slope, trial zones and a BMX track or set off on the 140km Monts de Guéret Mountain-bike tour.

It's also a favourite spot with trail runners who come for the outstanding environment of forests, meadows, lakes, streams and wild gorges. Ten specifically-marked circuits allow you to train both day and night (reflective signposting). A new Trail and Triathlon space has just opened. If you want, you can take part in a number of free group trails, the ideal opportunity to test new circuits in the company of other trailers.

An event not to be missed is the White Wolf Trail organised mid-December in the Monts de Guéret.
