The FFC has begun certifying mountain-biking sites and promoting mountain-biking as a leisure activity enabling everyone to discover beautiful regions in complete safety on fully-marked and regularly maintained routes.
Over 179 Sites and more than 62.000 km of paths a year are awarded the "VTT-FFC" label. This is your guarantee that the site offers various services as well as marked paths graded by difficulty. Examples of these services include: personal reception, full information about the routes, information boards and route maps, washing facilities, a bicycle repair point and cycle hire.
Some sites organise group expeditions or courses led by qualified professionals on request. Grandes Traversées ("great crossings") are a way of touring by bicycle, with your luggage being sent on for you. Most mountain sites open their chair-lifts to mountain-bikers, making the activity in a mountain setting easily accessible.
