The Sundgau is newly equipped with a vast mountain bike area labelled FFCT that includes 33 circuits with over 700 km of routes and 2 Bike Parks, and is uncontestably a choice site for mountain biking.

The valleys of the river Ill and the Largue are perfect for families, with appropriately pleasant routes.

A map (5€) and detailed topoguides (5€) are on sale at the Sundgau Tourist Information Centres.

The Sundgau recently created 2 Bike Parks. The first, the Ludik Park in Friesen, offers ten modules aimed at families and beginners. The second, the Stunt Park, is more demanding and is located in Heimersdorf. It is designed for BMX and mountain bikes and is made up of 4 distinct routes for all levels. 

This MTB area is listed by the fédération française de cyclotourisme.
