Luz Ardiden via Viscos

This is one of our favorite XC routes that can be done on one of our CUBE Electric MTBs or, if you're feeling fit, on one of our SCOTT semi-rigid MTBs  ... The route starts from outside of Ardiden Velos and takes you a couple of km downhill from Luz-Saint-Sauveur where you take a left towards Viscos and start climbing !!! It's a 10 km climb on a part paved / part gravel road at an average of about 8 1/4% and it brings you out past the tree-line about 4km below Luz Ardiden ski station. A couple of 100m further up hill and the fun starts :)

 

The downhill trail is always well maintained and is for the most part fast and flowing, (though it can get a bit rocky on one section above Grust). It takes you down the well used Trotinet scooter trail and descends about 800m, non-stop. Good on a scooter, even better on a mountain bike ... The trail is 95% off-road and criss-crosses the main Luz Ardiden road a few times on it's way down.

Total distance 20 km and about 880m of climbing.
