Moutain biking

The mountain bike (VTT) trails depart from the Educational Farm at CPA Lathus and go through the Le Peu valley. 

CPA Lathus is located in an area of natural farmland dotted with hedgerows : a vast and unspoilt adventure playground for mountain bikers. The 200 km of waymarked trails take cyclists into the heart of the countryside, close to nature. Different itineraries are available to suit the abilities of the participants and the learning aims, including trails of 7 to 64 km in length.
