To learn to ride a mountain bike, in addition to the trails adapted to learning, the Bike Park offers a series of educational workshops that allow you to evolve in complete safety. 

The Bike Park has green trails (Easy Rider/Tranks) on which you will find all the instructions for learning throughout the course, so that you have the attitudes and behaviour that will enable you to progress gradually and thus access trails of greater difficulty.
