As you wind around the bends, you rise above the Grenoble conurbation stretching out at your feet, with Belledonne as your backdrop. The climb is tough, but once you reach Saint-Nizier, the Vercors plateau awaits you. Getting to Villard-de-Lans is a real pleasure. Note that bus line 5110 between Grenoble and Saint-Nizier du-Moucherotte is equipped with bike racks and can save you the long climb...
