  • Aix-en-Provence: E-Bike Tour of Mount Sainte-Victoire

    The tour starts and finishes at the shop in Aix-en-Provence where you will be set up with a Scott Electric mountain bike and helmet. The first few kilometres to get to the mountain are on paved roads and then the route follows different off-road trails. There are various viewpoints to stop at and appreciate the magnificence of the mountain, take videos, photos and have a snack. An E-Bike is a great way to explore the trails and makes the mountain accessible to people of all ages and riding capabilities. The electric mountain bike makes it easy to ride up steep hills and you'll be able to ride areas that you never thought possible. Each route is chosen depending on the skill level of the group.

    What a wonderful bike tour with Colin . He was informative and easy to talk to. You do not have to be in perfect shape as the bike can do the work or you can not use the bike and enjoy the great scenery. 5 stars plus!
