The main cycle service areas

There are three dedicated bicycle service areas in the valley, at Saint-Martin-de-Belleville, Les Menuires and Val Thorens.

These centres feature kiosks offering solutions for washing your bike after your daily outing, maintaining it with the right tools, and inflating your tyres to the right pressure.

You can also park your bike on a secure cradle and recharge your electrically-assisted bike while you take a break.
