Town:

The commune of Venosc consists of the picturesque medieval farming village of Venosc as well as a number of other hamlets such as Bourg d’Arud, Les Ougiers and La Danchere. Located in the valley of the river Veneon that leads only into the Ecrins National Park, this part of the Oisans region provides a tranquil haven for cyclists, away from the busier mountain resorts. The village itself has a scattering of lovely bars and restaurants as well as an open-air swimming pool, tree top adventure trail and Via Ferrata.

However during the winter ski season and almost three months of the summer, the village is connected to the popular mountain resort of Les Deux Alpes via high-speed gondola.

Biking:

The Veneon Valley is one of the areas that make road cycling so special in this region. People come for the Alpe d’Huez and other big name rides, and then discover a multitude of stunning considerably more enjoyable routes. The road from Bourg d’Oisans to La Berrade is a must do for all cyclists visiting the area. Thanks to quiet roads, stunning views, a couple of challenging climbs and a selection of places to stop for refreshments along the way, visitors to the region regularly comment that La Berrade had been their favourite ride of their trip.

A short ride down the valley and you meet the intersection, where you can turn left towards Bourg d’Oisans and the start of the Alpe d’Huez, or turn right towards the Col du Lautaret and on to the Col du Galibier, or take on a circular route to Les Deux Alpes, or climb up the Col de Sarenne and the back route into Alpe d’Huez, which features in the 2013 Tour de France.

For mountain bikers, Venosc also benefits from being linked to the Les Deux Apes by high speed gondola. Trails are available from the glacier at 3300m all the way down into the resort and onto the village at 900m, down what is considered one of the best and more challenging downhill mountain trails in the world.

Events:

Mountain of Hell a three-day event open to professionals and amateurs towards the end of July, culminating in a a derby style, Enduro Freeride race on the Sunday. Starting on the glacier above Les Deux Alpes, the course descends 25km through snow, ice, lunar landscape shingle trails, single track and finally the switchbacked forest to the finish in Venosc.

Crankworx Les 2 Alpes Free Raid, formerly Crankworx and the Mondial du VTT Free Raid Classic, this nine day event in Les Deux Alpes in early July brings together some of the best professional and amateur riders from all over the world to compete in Enduro, Dual Climb, Pump Track Challenge, Air Downhill, Dual Speed & Style, Free Trail, Biker Croute, Best Trick, Slopestyle and Free Raid Classic.

In late August, the resort hosts La GranFondo Les 2 Alpes, a gruelling 164km sportive which starts and finishes in the resort and races over the Col d’Ornon, Col de Parquetout and the Alpe du Grand Serre.
