If you are travelling by car beware of using the sat nav as sometimes it takes you across high mountain passes.  It is better to stick to the valley routes and climb up from Villard-sur-Doron

You will need

– A fully suspended MTB (preferably) in good working order (inflated tires, set speeds, brake pads in good condition)*

– Compulsory helmet (integral or jet)

– Knee pads and gloves recommended

– A rain jacket and / or windbreaker (the weather changes quickly in the mountains)

– Your GoPro and / or camera! Landscapes are worth

* Up N ‘Down will not be responsible for any accident on the bike.
