Local ambles from the chalet

Short road climbs and gentler local rides for those days when you want to take it easy

Looking to acclimatize before tackling a big climb, or fancy a bit of a rest. Try one of the local short road climbs or gentle valley ambles, accessible straight from the chalet too.

Pedal along quiet country roads past rural hamlets and villages on a long lazy loop around the Bourg Saint Maurice valley. Wind your way up the Versant Soleil, stop off for a relaxed lunch or cold drink, and soak up the stunning views of forests, snow capped mountains and wildflower meadows. Whizz along the 12km riverside cycle path between Aime and Bourg Saint Maurice and take a dip in the swimming lake or outdoor pool. Take your pick of short local rides to suit your mood and energy level.
