A mountain bike with fat tyres
FatBike MountainBikes come from Alaska; although the first design was created by the French cyclist Jean Naud in 1980. It’s truly an all-rounder: weather or tracks, the conditions do not matter. The FatBike stands out during winter when tracks are covered by a light snow powder: no one is better than it for this! As you will see, there are not many flat trails around the valley of Chamonix and I assure you, you will be happy riding an E-Bike!

A wonderful 2 hour loop in the Valley of Chamonix
The following tour in the valley of Chamonix starts at 9:30 am at the Mountain Bike Shop Legend CHX where you will pay both the safety deposit and the rental. Here you will leave what you don’t need for the tour (check the clothing recommendations in the next tab). After we have got the E-Bikes, I will take you on a fun 25km loop with only two technical sections, which is suitable for intermediate MTBikers.
You will find the elevation profile below to have an idea about the difficulties on the loop.
Lunch & Spa
What could possibly be better after an E-FatBike tour?
Once back at the shop, the tour is not over yet. I will take you to Le Refuge des Aiglons to relax. The Deep Nature SPA at Le Refuge des Aiglons has at your disposal an outdoor hot tub and heated pool facing Mont-Blanc as well as 2 sauna and steam rooms in outdoor wood cabins. Its indoor space is just as complete with its steam room, experience shower, fitness area and a relaxation room to assure you a full recovery. When you feel ready, the restaurant welcomes you until 02:00 pm and offers excellent French cuisine.
