Experience E-bikes with the family in Les 3 Vallées
Damien Laymond, CEO of the IDM society (which works for many ski areas in France including Les 3 Vallées) and ski instructor, explains his experience of electric bikes in Les 3 Vallées.
He is a road cyclist who tends to ride alone, but as a father he’s always wanted to share his passion and amazing experiences with his wife and young son.
MY ASCENT OF THE COL DE LA LOZE WITH MY FAMILY
What equipment to plan?
After eating breakfast, you have to be sure to leave with the right equipment.
Provide two electrically assisted bicycles, one for the mother and one for the father,
Do not forget the small specific trailer for the child, which attaches to the back of the bike,
Sunscreen, water, a bicycle helmet, a little sweatshirt if temperatures are cold when you are at the top... and of course, don't forget a good picnic!
It's time to leave
In order to be able to enjoy the climb serenely, taking the time to admire the unique panoramas, it is good to put the first pedal stroke around 10am. But not later...
Once at the top of the Col, the picnic is appreciated in front of the incredible high mountain landscapes.
Setting off at 10am, kitted out with E-bikes and a little trailer for his son, the whole family were able to experience climbing a legendary mountain pass, in a tranquil atmosphere and a majestic setting.
There are no restrictions on this bike path. Because it’s reserved exclusively to cyclists, there’s no need to stress about cars, especially if you’ve got a child in a trailer behind you at ground level.
The electrical assistance makes the cycling much easier, even with the trailer! The bike path surface is smooth, which makes it easier to control the bike and your balance.
We admired the stunning scenery together, the three of us, and we even spotted a few marmots before quietly setting off for the ride back down. It was a wonderful experience to share!
