Does your group already include more than 8 people? No problem, we can find a second instructor and thus form a second group.
Initiation course: is intended for anyone wishing to discover downhill mountain biking in complete safety, ideal for trying out the discipline and/or benefiting from technical advice that will make your mountain bike ride easier.
Advanced course: for all those who already practice downhill or enduro (or who already have some basic skills) and who wish to improve their skills in the discipline.
Given its annual 8-month riding season, the Pic du Jer is exceptional mountain biking terrain. Acclaimed worldwide for its black track featured in the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup, the Pic du Jer has become in just a few years a training spot popular amongst both amateur as well as professional riders.
With no less than 3 downhill tracks and 2 enduro trails (plus a few “secret” trails), the Pic du Jer is now an unmissable mountain bike spot in the region and probably one of the best bike-parks in the Pyrenees.
The “With bike” option includes the rental of a COMMENCAL downhill mountain bike (Furious). Top equipment for a top day!
- Commencal downhill bike rental (with bike option), Furious
- Helmet and protection (with bike option)
- 1 lunch at Pic du Jer restaurant
