Road cycling in Vaujany
Vaujany has an ideal environment for mountain biking.
The Collet site and its bike park allow beginners and families to have fun in complete safety! From here you can even venture out on small trails.
Take the cable car up to the Alpette (2100m) and enjoy the thrill of riding on the heights of the resort’s mountain bike area. You can admire a grandiose panorama overlooking the Oisans and then practice on the trails of the Alpe d’Huez Grand Domaine VTT.
Throughout the summer Vaujany organises, at least once a week, a ride open to all, allowing you to discover the various easy routes of the Grandes Rousses Massif and the family routes around Vaujany.
The outing is supervised by a professional.
(Mountain bikes can be hired from the “Atou’ Sport” shop on the Place du Téléphérique).
- Col du Sabot
Some say that the Col du Sabot climb is one of the 5 toughest climbs in Isère. Start at the foot of Vaujany, in Le Verney, cross each hamlet of the commune and then reach the heart of the resort. After a good breath, climb the Col. At the top, you can contemplate the Grand’Maison dam and the panorama that plunges down on Vaujany… in good weather, you can admire the Mont-Blanc!
- Col du Glandon – Col de la Croix de Fer
From the valley, reach the Verney, the gateway to Vaujany. From there, go to Rivier d’Allemont. After a few hours of climbing, you will arrive at the top of two mythical Cols of world cycling.
Try a 100% gourmet cycling holiday
With a reference cycling event – La Vaujany -, the Tour de France, the Oisans Col Series and now the GFNY Alpes-Vaujany for the second year running, the resort has become a mecca for cyclists and offers some of the most beautiful rides in the Alps.
Fascinated by the little Queen themselves, our accommodation providers have had the idea of offering a real stopover dedicated to mountain bikers and other cyclists.
