We head for the Tourist Office, where Stéphanie is waiting for us. She’s a state-qualified sports educator, and will be accompanying us on our excursion this afternoon. We’re comfortable with maps, but this time we really want to let ourselves be guided, to enjoy the surrounding landscapes, the unspoilt nature of the area.
After a few recommendations, we hop on our mountain bikes and take circuit n°11 for a ride of around 1h30. We start with the famous spa park and its must-see monuments, then pass right by the racecourse, heading for the majestic Hôtel l’Ermitage and its mythical golf course. And off we go, one wooded path after another, grumbling a little as we climb, but our guide for the day finds comforting words with a touch of humor, and it goes very well. She tells us all about the flora and fauna around us, the kilometers go by and the walk goes by at breakneck speed. After a passage on the heights of Golf Mont Saint-Jean with a breathtaking view of the city, we get back on our wheels and end this great moment. We thank Stéphanie and head back to our hotel. It’s decided, tomorrow we’ll try another circuit!
