By mountain bike

This 15 km circuit is ideal for beginners who are discovering the joys and difficulties of mountain biking: small climbs, false flats and stony descents. Beginners are advised to get off their bikes on steep and stony paths.

Departing from the Charavines Tourist Office, this circuit offers a diversity of country landscapes and rural life. In good weather, you can admire the Mont Blanc and the Chartreuse. A break at the Grange Dîmière allows you to regain your strength. Former dependency of the Carthusian monastery of the Sylve Bénite, this building dates from 1655. At that time being used to collect the harvests and the royalties in kind for the monks, the barn imposes itself by its vast proportions. Its masterful frame will surprise you.

Further information : Water point and public WC at the start of the circuit.
