Superbesse is a great little bike park. Well worth a visit, really friendly locals (riders and bar owners!)
Lioran is not a great park but, apparently there is a little private one that uses the lower chair lift that is pretty fun.
It was a few years ago but, there were adverts around the resort for an outfit offering guided rides.
There is an ffc centre at la bouboule, but it’s a bit rubbish.
The terrain is pretty cool so I am sure there is plenty of good riding, buy an ing map, it’s not like its the high mountains.
Thanks Ian I’ll check Superbesse out in August then:-) I did notice they had built some bits of boardwalk when I was at Lioan skiing in March so I might go take a look anyway as no doubt I’ll have to go to Aurillac sometime whilst there.
Whast are the Besse trails like?
Super cool blue with lots of flow, 2 reds alternating fast with steeper tech sections and wooded rooty stuff near the bottom. A black that has been used for coupe de France comps andhas some pretty big features. There might be more now, it was 3 years ago when I was last there.
The trails lead into a wood park at the bottom with various features and different size gaps.
The private park by lioran is ( I think) like a series of 4x tracks.
Lioran is just a track down the hill that had had no maintainance and was battered ( 4 years ago but someone last year told me nothing had changed)
