MTB & ROAD CYLING
The last few years have seen a huge growth in mountain biking in Saint Pierre, in direct response to some well thought out and innovative trail building. In Saint Pierre itself, there are 4 main trails, all of which start from the top of the high speed 6-man chairlift. You can download a copy of the trail map at www.vttchartreuse.com/logos/plan.pdf. Bear in mind that all of the runs link up at various points down the mountain, so you can chop and change the advertised routes. The Green run is an excellent warm-up trail and also very suited to family rides. It starts on wide firetracks but moves onto singletrack about half way down. The Blue route is similar to the Green route with the addition of the occasional berm and bus-stop. The Red route, known locally as 'Rouge du Battoir' is a non-stop series of berms, jumps and high speed sections which will have you going straight back up to the top again for more. Finally, the Black 'La Pro de l'Ours' - super technical at the top, but becoming progressively easier as you decline. This one is not for the feint-hearted, but you'll be grinning from ear to ear when you reach the bottom.
