All cycling routes depart from Bourg d'Oisans, the main borough of the community of Oisans, whose long even stretches allow you to train your legs before you reach the more mountainous parts. In addition, its geographical location in the heart of the community of Oisans makes it an ideal starting point. Our indications for the length of each tour are for the average cyclist running at approximately 28 km/h on flat roads and at 11 km/h uphill. These indications are, of course, subject to other conditions like wind, road condition, tiredness or even a meal with a little too much red wine …

La grimpée d'Oulles

The 7 km of hairpin bends are quite strenuous, but the uphill ride remains pleasant on this small and little-used road. There is a somewhat Mediterranean feel to this south-facing, wind-sheltered slope with its covering of pine trees!
