This 48 km mountain bike circuit introduces you to the beautiful region of Crans-Montana. Physically and technically demanding, the tour offers a vast variety of surprises: forests, bisses (irrigation channels), pastures, pinewoods, vineyards, villages, lakes and more than one museum on the way.
The itinerary offers a very nice mix of landscapes. Departure is at Lake Moubra, then the route takes you towards Arnouva, along the Grenon and Chermignon's lakes. The tour continues to Marolires and then to Courtavey. Next, you will arrive to Ploumachit and then to Colombire, with its alpage museum, and further along the «bisse du Tsittorent» to the alpage Cave du Scex. An impressive Alpine panorama, a relaxing atmosphere and the many typical restaurants will offer you unforgettable moments.

Before heading down, you still have the last effort up to reach Tièche. There you will have to cross a little bridge before heading down for about 15 km through Cordona, Planige, Venthône, Tovachir until Chermignon-d'en-Bas. You will then arrive to Lens, a very nice village. Here you can visit the art musem Fondation Pierre Arnaud and the historical museum Le Grand-Lens.

The return to Crans-Montana is via the upper reaches of Icogne, the most westerly village in Crans-Montana or you can pass through Chermignon-d'en-Haut. From the «mayens», the uphill to the resort requires quite some efforts before returning to the start point at Moubra Lake. You can rest at Lake Moubra on the beach or choose one of the various activities offered there.
