Certified « Espace VTT-FFC » (mountain bike area) by the French federation of cycling, our destination offers 102 km of tracks to mountain bike lovers, with amazing points of view et a range of services required for practising.

A mountain bike area, certified by the FFC

Situed at the end of the well-known moutain-biking track « Grande Traversée de l’Ardèche », which goes from Vallon-Pont-D’Arc to Bourg-Saint-Andeol, the space « Du Rhône aux Gorges de l’Ardèche » was certified « Moutain bike area » in 2017. From Viviers to Bourg-Saint-Andeol, including Saint-Martin d’Ardèche and Saint-Montan, 8 mountain bikes tracks with clear signage await you. Organised by 4 levels of difficulties (green, blue, red or black tracks), they are easy to reach and suited for everyone.

For instead, for a family ride, run peacefully along the river Rhone on the track « Les deux ponts » from Viviers to Bourg-Saint-Andeol. If you’re looking for practising your technique, you’d rather choose the trail « Le ravin de la Bardalène » which follows a section of GR42 (great hiking path) on a hilly ground made of limestone rocks, typical from Southern Ardèche. You may also go mountain-biking on the track « Tour de Larnas », from where you’ll have an unobstructed view on the valley of Nègue.
