An integral part of the 12 resorts of the Franco-Swiss Portes du Soleil, Les Gets is a pioneering destination for both MTB competitions and leisure activities with a Bikepark designed for riders of all levels.
Road-bikers also come to the region, both as part of the Routes des Grandes Alpes, or to climb the mythical Tour de France cols surrounding the village.
|The village centre has been designed to encourage cyclists and the MTB area is superbly equipped with cycle paths, self-service bikes, Gets’Lib electric bike recharging points and electric mountain bikes. There is a readily available list of accommodation and service providers actively welcoming cyclists (rental shops, repair shops, road-bike lessons...). Les Gets is an ideal base for cyclists and as such has naturally joined the national “Accueil Velo” - ‘Bikes Welcome’ initiative.|
The resort is renowned for its organisation of International MTB competitions and as a stage on the Criterium du Dauphiné road-bike race. The last race included the challenging time trial up Mont Chéry which is likely to become an irresistible challenge for road-bikers.
