Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, it is highly recommended to book in order to make sure the instructor and a bike adapted to your height is available.

The minimum number of participants is set at 3 or 4 depending on the type of course. An accompanied outing cannot take place if the minimum number of people is not reached. You will then be offered a refund or a modification of your reservation.

For everyone’s comfort, we limit our grops to 6,8 or 10 depending on the type of tour and the level. For private groups, please get in touch.

During a group outing, everyone has more fun when the level is the same. We accept kids from age 10 or 1m40 height, as soon as the kid is autonomous and can ride a bike (use the brakes, pedal, turn, stand up on the pedals)

Our groups are composed by level so that everyone has a good time. Don’t hesitate to call us to discuss your level or to consult our level finder so that we can choose the best level together. If the level of the group is too different, we will suggest you to change the group or the schedule in order to ensure the safety and the satisfaction of all.

The price include the instructor guidance, maintenance of the bike, rental of the bike and the protection kit: helmet, gloves, knee abd elbow protections. The tour can include a snack or meal.

As a rule, the starting point is at our office in Chinaillon. However, some outings outside of Grand Bornand may start from another location, in which case the meeting place will be specified on your reservation summary. Thank you for being punctual.

  • We take the time to listen to everyone’s expectations, desires and level ideas. Then we adjust the bikes to the body size of each participant.
  • A short time to get used to the bike on a road or 4×4 track to discover the bike and the use of the engine.
  • Depending on the type and level of the outing, the instructor can give advice or suggest practical exercises to improve, or simply guide you if you wish.
  • An animation or a snack/meal can be included on the course.
  • Back to the starting point, bike check and debriefing.

Of course. Booking an instructor for a private session will ensure that you perfect your technique more quickly and you will have full choice of your itinerary. More info (private instructor)

If you have a sport action camera like a Gopro, you can bring it with you.
