Main bike service areas

In the valley you’ll find three bike service areas, in Saint-Martin-de-Belleville, Les Menuires and Val Thorens, to pamper your bicycle.

These sites have facilities where you can wash your bike after a day on the trails, use the repair kits, and pump up your tyres.

You an also park your bike safely on a bike rack and charge your E-bike battery while you take a break.

Register at the terminal to get free access.


New: 2 new cycling paths exclusively for cyclists

There are 2 cycle paths set aside exclusively for cyclists, away from the footpaths, one between Les Menuires and Tougnète (7 km), the other between Les Menuires and Val Thorens (6.5 km).

Whether you’re riding a standard bike or an E-bike, the first will take you to the new Col de Tougnète (elevation 2,407 metres) which connects the Vallée des Belleville with the rest of the 3 Vallées area.

The second features some beautiful balcony sections and offers the most pleasant route between the resorts of Les Menuires and Val Thorens.
