Techy singletrack trails… based in Bourg d'oisans???
There is a good fast one from duez back to the camp site at the bottom of the 21 switchbacks. You leave duez as you enter on the road and a path cuts or did over the duez sign and comes down the right of the road (as you head up), it then crosses and heads down to the road to villard reculas. Ride to said village and there is a sign on the left where it takes you all the way down.
Have a butchers on google earth, once you zoom in to a certain degree they all pop out at you, then just find them on the IGN mapPosted 4 years ago
Use the Meije lift at La Grave and get out at the first stage, pretty tech ride down from there. Or go to the tourist office (there’s one at the Venosc lift station) and get the VTT guidebook, it’s got loads of non bike park stuff in it.
Oz down to Allemont via Vaujany is very nice, not bonkers, but good views and a few tight switchbacks.
There’s also a trail from Alp D’Huez, past the roman ruins dig site, turn right down a pretty steep footpath to where the via ferrata is, follow the river down stream for a bit and head over the col towards Freney D’Oisans. Not done it, but it sounds pretty good in the guide book.Posted 4 years agoGavinBSubscriber
Yup, that’s the only bit I can remember, although did get recommended stuff on the other side of the valley. Look on Google Earth to the south of Bourg, and there are loads of trails (switchback-tastic) down the town. Might help if you have a lift to the col though.Posted 4 years agomtbmattMember
Is that this one?
Can’t embed video ‘cos it’s on PB
Great descent anyway.
No, the one I mean you have to ride to the top of the Sarenne, descent 1km on the road, then a singletrack shoots off on the right hand side. It is very narrow and technical, but ends away from lifts so could be a ball ache to get back from.Posted 4 years agochakapingSubscriber

Righto, you mean off the other side of the hill to the west then I think.
My video was Sardonne not Sarenne, ny mix-up.
Spent quite a few of our rest stops looking across the valley from above Allemond, wondering about the trails over there.Posted 4 years ago
