I love to ride mountain bikes, it allows to do sports and it gives great sensations, you go at your own pace and it allows you to discover each day a different look on the landscapes and the nature you meet.

Each season is a perpetual wonder. I love to practice in spring and summer and enjoy the coolness of the trails in the woods and along the river. What I like is the discovery, the heritage and it’s happiness when at the bend of a walk you find the path of a buzzard, a doe or an ashy heron.
