St Jean-en-Royans – Combe Lavel – Col de la Machine – Col de Carri – Col de la Chau – Col de Pionier – St Jean-en-Royans
Ride Time: Approximately 3 hours
Terrain: Mountainous - Climbing in The Vercors
This is a testing circuit with steady climbing for the first two thirds and an exhilarating descent for the last third. The start is via the Combe Laval, a breathtaking road that clings to the side of the mountain and looks like a scene from a James Bond film. The climbing continues up Col de la Machine, Col de Carri and Col de la Chau reaching 1337m. A short descent and then the final climb up Col de Pionier before the final sweep down the mountain back to St Jean-en-Royans.
