At the Plateau des Petites Roches, mountain biking and mountain bike outings can be organized as you wish. You’ll find tours to suit everyone, from beginners to experts, depending on what you’re up to that day. Loop or single trip, the choice is yours.

Do you prefer mountain bike routes that allow you to do loops? Choose an etrip under the Bear’s tooth. Departing from Saint-Pierre d’Entremont, this 13.7 km loop is perfect for those who want to try out electric-assist cycling, as well as for those who already have a good level of mountain-biking experience. If you want to do a loop with children and introduce them to mountain biking in the forest, the Dioux loop is ideal. A very easy 45-minute itinerary, it’s perfect for outings with children.

If, on the other hand, you prefer beautiful itineraries without the feeling of retracing your steps, then choose the long crossings. Crossing the Grésivaudan from Le Touvet to Bernin at the foot of the Chartreuse offers you the chance to discover all the treasures of the area: the Château du Touvet and its gardens, the Montfort marshes.
