June 17, 2021
From the Vercors town of Saint-Nizier-du-Moucherotte, this short Tour takes you up to the north over the stunning Plateau Charvet and loops back to the town.
From the high town, you start by descending off the hillside to the north to La Chaussère, then take the singletrack to Rochetière.
Shortly after the road section, you peel off onto a dirt doubletrack, descending to meet Chemin de Charvet which leads you north-east.
Here, you gradually climb, passing close to the peak of Mollard Gargot on your left. Keep ascending through the village of Charvet, then take the singletrack right across the plateau. Join the flat Chemin des Roux on the plateau, heading south.
You'll rejoin an earlier track to complete the first loop, before heading back into Saint-Nizier-du-Moucherotte from the east, climbing from Les Michallons back through La Chaussère.
