Reunion Island: mecca of downhill mountain biking!


Reunion Island has about 300 km of mountain bike tracks that evoke the adventure and the experience of the unknown. Be it easy trails or more technical ones, bike paths around the island require the same skill: keeping one’s balance on two wheels!

This is an opportunity to take Julien Absalon’s path, or to feel like Julien Absalon, and descend the Maido just as he did at Reunion Island’s Megavalanche, the ultimate descent of all champions.

Julien Absalon is a French cross-country mountain biker. He won consecutive gold medals at the 2004 Summer Olympics and at the 2008 Summer Olympics. He has also been one of Reunion Island’s Ambassadors since 2011.
