Porto Pollo and mountain biking

The Valinco Taravu Team, a cycling club, school and mountain biking centre affiliated to the Fédération Française de Cyclo Tourisme, is located in Porto Pollo, a small village close to Propriano. Philippe Teixeira, president of the Valinco Taravu Team, organises downhill biking tours (mountain biking without the effort).

The tours depart from Porto-Pollo (Plein Sud residence) on a 9-seater minibus, with a trailer for the mountain bikes, every Wednesday at 8 o’clock.

Upon arrival at a site selected by Philippe, each participant gets « kitted up », with disk brakes on their bike and a helmet. After a short warm-up, the instructor accompanies you on a convivial descent where you can explore the flora and fauna of the island. This mountain biking trail, complete with breath-taking picture postcard scenery, will live long in the memory. It is always a good idea to bring a camera. The tour lasts roughly 4 hours and costs 50 euros. Family rate: 45 euros (starting from 3 people). Tours must have at least 5 people.

The plus.
This tour combines sport with discovery and shows you some superb landscapes from this small corner of the Island of Beauty.
