Family Routes

These trails are designed for first-time road bikers, although some of the circuits require mountain bikes or all terrain bikes.

These loops are short and low-intensity, offering families the chance to explore quiet, little-known areas in the inland and illy/mountains régions of the Alpes-Maritimes.

Relaxing and exploring are the key words here: break the day up with a picnic or luxurious lunch stop in one of the region's quality restaurants.
