The Oisans Area

Cycling in the French Alps and Oisans area is a wonderful experience. Riding out of Vaujany every morning whether to train or compete, is like riding through the annals of cycling history. Saddling up and riding narrow mountain roads to soaring mountain passes, racing down steep hillsides and reaching cool valley floors, the scenery that surrounds the rider is awe-inspiring, the challenges seemingly insurmountable and the satisfaction of completion indescribable. You are following in the tracks of the greats.

Routes

From small country roads to solitary mountain passes lost in the clouds, the Oisans is a very popular place for cycling. As you will discover, each road has its own history and each village has its own distinctive character. Most of these cycle routes begin in Bourg d’Oisans but they can of course be started from Vaujany and Allemont. They are designed both for sports cyclists and leisure cyclists.
