Cycling on Snow – bonkers or brilliant – you decide!

Fat BikeWhy let the snow stop you cycling? Simply jump on a Fat Bike – a specialist bike made for the snow with extra fat tyres - and carry on as normal!

Departing at 4pm (4.30pm in February and thereafter) from Montchavin you’ll collect your bike, full faced helmet and spine protector and ascend via lifts with your bike to the top of Lac Noir cable car. After a briefing from your experienced guide – ours was Lilou - it’s a 60 minute ride down to Montchavin.

Don’t worry - you ride after the slopes are mostly clear of skiers and so have the slopes largely to yourselves.

We started in daylight, but as we descended night fell and the mountain took on a mysterious eerie air. A cloudless sky and a crescent moon shining brightly lit up Mont Blanc and the surrounding mountains whilst the lights twinkled evermore brightly from the valley below.

Finally, we made it back to base at 6pm and a much needed warm-up in the shop.

There is a minimum height requirement of 1m 60cm (5ft 3inches) for riders and the cost per person is 45 Euros with a maximum group size of seven.

Worried that it all might be too strenuous? Just ask to hire an electric Fat Bike. No really, it’s a thing.

Book via the Evolution2 office in Les Coches or Montchavin.
