Chamrousse-Uriage downhill track

From Chamrousse 1650, take the pedestrian/MTB track and ride down to Uriage (for confirmed bikers). The way Uriage-Chamrousse is possible by bus (Transisère 6010).

Caution!

These tracks are for mountain biking only. The practice is free and not supervised: the route is done under your own responsibility.
The tracks may be slippery by wet or very dry conditions and the rain reduces greatly the grip. You must check that your equipment is in good working order.
Helmets are obligatory, gloves and protective gear (elbow guards, knee pads and spine armour) are strongly recommended.
You must always control your speed and your path when riding your bike. Avoiding the other bikers and the surrounding objects is your responsibility. Never stop on a route if you are blocking the way or if you cannot be seen by the other bikers.
Don't forget you are crossing pastures. Respect the flock of sheep by controlling your speed!
Please do not use the ski slopes to avoid damaging them.

Cross-country and electric bikes

6 loops (about 50km) dedicated to cross-country and electric bikes links the three parts of the resort, taking marked paths and an alternative itinerary via the main road.
Cross-country: on tracks without any technical difficulty but requiring stamina. Not adapted to downhill tracks.
Electric bike: on road or paths without getting tired.
