Chéserex - Sport
VTT La Barillette is a big bike event taking place at the end of August, addressed to all family members. The race starts in the village Chéserex and ends at the summit of La Barillette (1528m).
Despite the participation of real VTT champions, the « VTT La Barillette » is a big bike event mainly addressed to the whole family. Young riders (7 to 16 years old) can get a first feel for this sport and be able to race against other young riders coming from various parts of Switzerland. Races covering 5, 10 or 20 kilometres are being marked across footpaths.
The public can encourage their favourite riders on several points of the ascending route, and particularly at the finishing line, at the foot of La Barillette’s antenna, located at 1'528 meters above sea level.
From there you will enjoy a panoramic view over Lake Geneva and the Alps.
