Mountain Biking (59)
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.
Col du Lauteret, Belledonne
Mid morning MTB tour in the sun
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.
Blown Shocks on the No Name
An "easy" afternoon ride to try and recover from my bad hip. The descent of the No Name needs a bit of cleaning and is a bit narrow with my wide handlebars.
Tour of the garden
Quick tour behind the house of the Côte Borne and the Champ Bertin. Surprisingly dry in the woods and quite warm given it is boxing day.
From the hamlet of le Civet climb the route de Bois to les Massons then the reservoirs of St Ismier. From the reservoirs take the right fork towards the Col de Faita.
