L’Autre Chemin offers the emblematic route from Le Puy-en-Velay to Nasbinals!

Because we have personally spotted the route, we propose to ride as close as possible to the “Chemin” but also sometimes on small roads when it becomes too complicated for a “rider pilgrim”.

An e-bike tour in the heart of nature from Le Puy-en-VelayHaute-Loire to Nasbinals. Your tour will pass through the plateaus of Margueride and Aubrac .

 

A e-bike tour  out of time, in the millennial traces … Ultreïa and buen camino!

  • Difference in elevation :  2630m
  • Athletic tour with significant drop
  • Family tour : Children from ages of 14 (according to cycle ability)

This long-distance tour requires a good autonomy in the management of the bike: how to change an inner tube… But also a good control of the piloting of a bike (significant drop, steep descents …)
