The Plateau de Chambaran is just to the south of the much higher, more savage Vercors Massif. This cycling loop managed 6 cols for the most part on super quiet roads.
Just south-west of Grenoble, the Vercors massif must be one of the most interesting places to cycle in France.
For the first time in ages (years?), I followed with no idea where I was going as I was with a group of expert route planners.
The Vercors region is about as good as it gets for cycle touring.
A great loop in the beautiful Vercors Massif. Four Cols, two typically stunning Vercors gorges, and a terrifying tunnel.
Doreen survived her 3 day cycling boot camp in the beautiful Parc Naturel Régional du Vercors with one final great ride.
I was like a kid in a candy store.
Today’s ride passed at least 10 Cols (mountain passes) – I have photos of 9, missed one sign and got lost off road at a likely 11th. Fun!
