Mountain biking reigns in Digne-les-Bains. The city is at the heart of the largest mountain biking area in France! With 2300km of routes spread over 1500km2, the area includes more than 100 marked mountain bike trails of all levels, from demanding and technical ones, to easier fun rides. It is no surprise that mountain bike and outdoor lovers find here an ideal playground.
Among the large number of routes, there is the mythical “Raid des Terres Noires”, “Chemin du Soleil” (which links Grenoble to Nice in stages), or the “Traversée Alpes-Provence”. By bike, the rides are many and varied: the Blayeul circuit (60km), descent of the Bès by bike (25km), or the Pic d’Oise via Thoard. This vast area is labelled by the two cycling federations: VTT-FFCT (French Cycle Touring Federation) base and FFC (French Cycling Federation) site. These labels are a recognition of the quality of services and facilities offered in Haute Provence with respect to cycling and mountain biking.
Mountain biking in and around Digne
Here, mountain biking is truly a culture. The mythical sector of the Terres Noires offers an incredible, unique playground… amid breathtaking landscapes. And who hasn’t heard of the Raid or Enduro of the same name? There are 24 marked mountain bike trails in and around Digne. 2 of them pass through La Robine-sur-Galabre.
Chemins du soleil
This is a 1400km long mountain bike route that connects Lake Geneva to the Mediterranean Sea (Nice) via the Alps. We are on the Sisteron-Nice route which takes one week between the Dourbes and the Col de la Cine through the Terres Noires.
Enduro et Raid des Terres Noires
Two sporting events, two major mountain bike rallies in the setting of the Terres Noires. The Raid and Enduro competitions alternate: one year Raid, the next, Enduro. Two race formats but one and the same DNA: superior physical condition and physical demands in the extraordinary setting of the Black Lands.
This is a mountain bike ride that crosses the Alpes de Haute Provence from East to West on marked trails over nearly 240km long in total. It is a trip that takes a week. We are located at the heart of this route, between La Javie and Digne-les-Bains.
