FATMAP difficulty grade
A short but narrow ascent (easy to just push the bike) earns a long winding trail through the trees with great views across the valley.
Gradual and easy fun descent into the picturesque Parc Paradis in Les Praz.
In the summer months this is often filled with kids paddling in the large stream that runs through and offers a great stop for picnic, or food and a refreshing beer can be had at the Buvette.
There are also donkey rides if one fancies mixing the saddles up.
Or you can pedal right out via the golf course, passing a few other lunch options in town, to then gain the flat track along the river that brings you back into the centre of Chamonix town.
