The Alleys of Seillans Mountain Bike Race

Organised by Seillans Vélos Nature and Leï Caminaïre, the "Ruelles de Seillans" vélo tout-terrain (VTT) Mountain Bike race in Seillans has courses for all levels & ages and is open to anyone who wants to register. It's not overly competitive and is great fun to watch.

You can sip on a little morning cocktail (my sort of thing!) whilst enjoying a variety of different formats and circuits:

  • 4 circuits of different levels in the streets, alleys, cobbles of the village

  • 1 heritage walking circuit of 3.5 km with 125 m of height variation

  • 1 free fun circuit for young beginners with bicycles loaned if required

There will be a refreshment bar and snacks on site and there is one parking lot provided for participants on the Chaix field, with a shuttle bus to transport pedestrians to the centre of the village. Seillans is classified as a one of the "plus beau villages" (most beautiful villages) in France, so it's a great place to visit at any time.


A Reconnaissance of the Route


A nice little video (with a suitably thumping soundtrack from the Glitch Mob) gives you an idea of what to expect if you are cycling the main route:



How to Get there


  • By train/taxi: Take a train on the super-fast TGV route to Saint-Raphaël Valescure station, then catch a local taxi for the 35km drive up to Seillans.

  • By car: Leave the A8 (Nice – Aix en Provence) autoroute at exit 39 (direction "Fayence /Les Adrets de l 'Estérel") and drive a delightful route around the Lake of Saint-Cassien on the D37 into the Valley of Fayence. Follow signs from there on the D562, D19 to the centre of the village.

  • By bus: Whilst car is probably your best bet, you can reach Seillans by bus with some effort. The village is served by the ZOU regional network; and timetables are available at their website: https://zou.maregionsud.fr/
