Description: Around the Lac du Verney by e-bike
Leave Bourg d'Oisans on the D1091 towards Grenoble and turn right towards Allemond in Rochetaillée on the D526. Ride through the village and up to the Lac du Verney. Cross over the dam and ride the length of the lake (you'll see the Hydrelec Museum on this side) to a point just above the Pont Ratier bridge. This marks the beginning of a steep climb. After 650 m, turn left onto the Route du Villaret, which takes you more gently into the upper part of Allemond. Ride past the church and down towards the D526, where you turn right towards Bourg d'Oisans.
There are two ways of getting back to Bourg d'Oisans. If you prefer to stay on the road, go back the way you came, but if you prefer a track, follow the mountain bike "XC 1" signs in Rochetaillée, which will take you back to Bourg d'Oisans on a track to the right of the road.
Recharging: in restaurants in Allemond.
Refreshments and restaurants during the ride: bars and restaurants in Allemond and a snack bar at the Lac du Verney.
From 01/05 to 31/10.
