What is the ratio of pedaling and descent on your trips?

What is the ratio of pedaling and descent on your trips?

All our programs are essentially in an enduro or all-mountain format and offer vehicle, mule or horse assistance. The ratio of ascent to descent is generally between 0% and 30%. You can discover the details of the days and the elevation differences in the description of each stay or outing. For X-country programs, only transfers between two days are carried. The entire circuit is done by pedal. For the transport of mountain bikes by vehicles, we always provide suitable supports respecting the equipment such as galleries, fitted trailers or racks. For the transport of bicycles on horses or mules, we have always used this method and are well experienced to ensure the good treatment of both your equipment and animals.
