Mountain Biking (27)
Combe de Molière
Headed out with Mike to have a look at his super new MTB. The trail is pretty good in the damp as it is mostly sand which drains well. Some snow on the descent but generally good grip going down.
Post Christmas Ride
I'd not been out on my bike for a couple of weeks.
Croix de l Alpe from les Prés
From the town hall in les Pres take a metalled road through the village direction Croix de l'Alpe. After 100 m by a fire hydrant and reservoir follow a small path to the left (NW) past a house.
Ice road biker
I've not been out on the bike since the end of November but with no recent snow and limited time decided to do an MTB tour with the hope that the biting cold would have frozen all the mud.
Tour des Crets de Prabert
Starting from the hamlet of Lnagenet follow the road to Rouare, la Planta then after some zig-zags the roads flattens. Take a right hander to les Avons to finally reach the Col du Lauteret.
Sunset on the Crêt de Chazay
Reasonably dry except on the steep section just before the col de la croix des Ayes where the stones were humid and a bit slippery. The route is pretty logical.
Tour of the Crêt de Chazay
From the parking ride into Brignoud crossing the railway line and turn left at the lights. At 2.
Mont Rachais from Crolles
A return to Mont Rachais which I'd last ridden on my old Raleigh mtb. Rather than taking the road I traversed across the banks of the Gresivaudan valley along the trails and singles.
Tour of Mont Rachais
ClimbMont Rachais is a classic for the Grenoblois. I’ve done Mont-Jalla -> Bastille years ago but Mont Rachais means you descend from the very summit of the mountain behind the Bastille.
A quick lunch tour of the Gresivaudan. Usual ride out via the valley and banks of the Isere before climbing the Mur de la Frete and returning via the foothills of the Chartreuse.
