At an altitude of 1,500 m on a sun-drenched plateau high above the Rhone valley, the neighbouring villages of Crans and Montana form a fantastic backdrop to the route, which is used as a training route by professional cyclists, and is surrounded by an impressive line-up of peaks, from the Matterhorn to Mont Blanc.
For top athletes and cycling enthusiasts, there is a 20-kilometre route with a 750-metre elevation gain from Montana towards the valley and finally up into the mountains.
Occasional riders and families can choose a shorter route. It is 14 kilometres long and has a 430-metre elevation gain – with the same view.
There is also a secure children’s route that leads 1.5 kilometres around the lakes to the centre of Crans-Montana with almost no elevation.
Start and finish location: Place d'Ycoor in the heart of Montana
