Route description

With this ride you will discover the villages nestled on the hillsides near Crans-Montana and their attractions. This 23km mountain bike circuit introduces you to the villages located on the Crans-Montana hillsides and their various features. On the programme: the Château de Venthône, Lens church and the Christ-Roi statue. The itinerary proposes a gentle approach to our villages and their surroundings, at your own rhythm.
Departure is from Lake Moubra. The route then takes you towards the villages of Randogne and Mollens to arrive above Venthône. At Darnona, if you want to break up the journey, you can head back up to the resort by taking your bike in the funicular. Next, head back west, towards Chermignon-d’en-Bas, then Lens with an uphill climb on the Chemin des Bouillettes to the foot of the Christ-Roi hill, which you leave to reach Louché Lake. The return to Crans-Montana is via the upper reaches of Icogne, the most westerly village in Crans-Montana. From the ‘mayens’, the uphill climb to the resort requires quite some effort. You can rest at Lake Miriouges in the heart of the forest, before returning to Moubra. This route combines all the ingredients of a real bike ride: technical downhills, different types of paths…all in very diverse surroundings. This excursion can either be done in one go (23km) or in sections.
By bus or by funicular from Sierre to Crans-Montana.
A9 motorway exit at Sierre-Ouest, follow the cantonal road via Chermigon until "Centre Sportif La Moubra" in Crans-Montana.
Free parking at Lake Moubra.
We recommend: bike in excellent working order, helmet, gloves and bell, clothing suitable for the weather (always carry a waterproof), food and drink.
