Nice short trail with lots of flow and one decent jump (although fairly flat landing) towards the top. Bit of pedalling but mostly downhill into the bottom of a gulley. Not technical at all, no rocks, just smooth earthy trail with a bit of loam.

This is a good finishing trail after coming down off Mont Chauve. Once in the gulley turn right and pedal through the jungle until you meet the road at Saint-André-de-la-Roche. From there you can turn right head back along the road into Nice.

Trail named 'Sex in the City' as it's the most fun you can have on a bike this close to the city.

Access Info

Pedal time from Nice is around 30 to 45mins. Heap though Cimiez, onto Avenue de Rimiez. At the first big left-hand hairpin, turn right uphill past the waterworks. Take the second right and head downhill on Chemin de Lombardie Inférieur.

Once you get to the end of that road you will find Sex in the City on your left. Look for a single track heading uphill with a house and garden on your right.

There is another trail starting here which goes downhill so make sure you start uphill on single track. Then it's sure you are on the right track.
