Follow the waymarked mountain-bike trails across lush green valleys or high mountain plateaus.
More physically demanding than the “classic” version, cross-country mountain biking takes you along the waymarked MTB trails.
Sancy boasts more than 570km of trails approved by the FFC (French cycling federation) with more than 50 itineraries of various levels across the massif. Explore the Sancy landscape by following the FFC mountain bike trails across the different sectors.
First repair kits and maps of the circuits are available in the Tourist Offices of the Massif du Sancy!
Prepare to explore between lakes and volcanoes in the company of a qualified mountain bike guide.
The Sancy tourist office organises a whole programme of guided mountain bike excursions.
The Grande Traversée du Massif Central MTB itinerary stretches for 1,380km between the Morvan in Burgundy and the Mediterranean Sea. It is suitable for touring mountain bikers, with or without powered assistance.
Short MBT tours lasting 3 days to 1 week are organised, such as the Traversée des Volcans d’Auvergne, a route that follows some of the Sancy trails between Murol and La Godivelle.
The “GTMC-recommended” accommodation solutions to be found along the route are all bike-friendly and perfect for mountain bikers (lockable garage, proximity to the trail, etc.)
