Presenting the GTMC

In 2018, the Grande Traversée du Massif Central à VTT (or GTMC) was reborn, offering mountain bikers a route almost 1,400km in length!

When first created, back in 1995, the route began at Clermont-Ferrand (capital of the Auvergne Region), heading south to the Mediterranean and the port of Sète, 680km away. Now, the route has been extended, with the addition of the Grande Traversée du Morvan à VTT and sections following the Allier River.

At 1,400km, this is the longest mountain-biking route in France. It allows you to discover the tremendous, all-too-little-known landscapes of the Massif Central, France’s central-southern mountainous area.
