The different practices

The world of cycling offers a wide variety of practices to suit all preferences and requirements. The main categories include traditional cycling, gravel, electric bikes (e-bikes) and mountain biking. Each offers a unique experience, so you can choose the one that best suits your needs.


Cycling is a widespread practice on roads or cycle paths. Traditional cyclists appreciate speed and distance, for competition, fitness or pleasure. Road bikes are lightweight, aerodynamic, optimizing pedaling efficiency over long distances, alone or in a group.


Gravel, or gravel cycling, combines road and mountain biking with bikes adapted to different terrains. Gravel cyclists enjoy adventure and exploration, accessing less-traveled areas with the comfort and speed of road bikes, an alternative way to get off the beaten track while staying on two wheels.

Electric bikes (e-bikes)

Electric bikes have revolutionized cycling with their pedal-assist motor, making it possible to cover greater distances and overcome hills more easily. Available in different categories (city, mountain bike, touring), they encourage soft and sustainable mobility.
