Crossing the Alps with an eMTB

From the rolling mountains to the jagged peaks, from the green alpine pastures of the Chablais to the golden meadows of the Queyras, from the elegant Savoyard cows to the agile sheep of the Mercantour, the Alps are ever changing. Crossing them isn’t limited to those who favour technical singletrack trails. On a mix of jeep tracks and easy trails, we head off on a rolling, contemplative itinerary that takes us from Lake Geneva to the Italian Piedmont with an eMTB.
