Little E-bike tour from Verbier... whilst still making use of the lifts. I took the lift up to Ruinette, then the road along towards Croix de Couer - before climbing up to Col de Min (this is where the e-bike is great), then down through Vallon D'arby, which has been shaped a bit more than before and is fairly "smooth". Then heading back towards the Tzoumaz gondola I hung a right on to the forest track that runs all the way along to Prarion which is a really nice wide single track with a couple of technical sections and one part I had to walk.. but perhaps I will get the skills to climb it on my e-bike soon. The plan was to do the full tour and over to Siviez and round by Mont Fort, but we were too late so took one of the forestry roads back to Tzoumaz back across towards Verbier and a final run down through the bike park - excellent. We just got a sandwich from Chalet des Alpes, but it is always nice to know there is a lunch option along the way!
