Mountain Biking Les Balcons du Tet

*****   Add a review
#11 of 57 mountain bike trails in France
#6,124 in the world

Les Balcons du Tet is a popular shuttle route in this region of France. If the train isn't broken down, you can take a train up the vast majority of the climb, finish the climb on pavement and gravel, and then bomb down this excellent singletrack trail. Alternatively, you can do a van shuttle, as I did with MTB dreams.
The upper portion of the trail is steep, fast, and pretty technical, with some gorgeous views.
Lower done, you reach the "Balcons," a bench cut section of trail made with stone wall shoring up the bottom side of it.

    An excellent shuttle ride with a bit of everything you could want: high speed descending, gnarly rock gardens, gorgeous views, interesting topography (the balcons from the trail name are so cool!) and incredible European culture. Highly recommended!
