Join the great e-bike getaway in Isère!

Electric bikes (or e-bikes) are proving to be something of a revolution for our charming mountain roads – calf muscles of all sizes can now join in!
Gone are the days when routes were suitable “for experienced cyclists only”. Everybody can now join in and enjoy the wonderful cycling opportunities in Oisans!

Just in case you’re still sceptical, the local Isère council is launching a campaign to convince you, with no fewer than 154 outings scheduled for the summer of 2017, just in Oisans! In 2016, over 600 tourists cycled more than 13,000 km throughout the Isère region.

How does it work? For a symbolic fee of €2you can join an e-bike outing accompanied by an official French Cycling Instructor. In small groups of no more than 8 people
