My home region, where I return regularly. It's a real paradise for mountain bikers: passes galore, with a wide variety of altitudes and difficulties, with sublime landscapes in the Chartreuse as well as in the Vercors and Belledonne, or even in the Matheysine.

However, it remains (relatively) unknown to foreign cyclists, who are much more attracted to neighbouring regions such as Maurienne or Bourg-d'Oisans, which benefit much more from the media coverage of the Tour de France.

But it's a blessing in disguise, you can still cycle there without being bothered by aggressive cycling tourism. :-)

Ma région d'origine, où je reviens régulièrement. C'est un véritable paradis pour les cyclistes amoureux de la montagne : des cols à foison, d'une très grande diversité d'altitude et de difficulté, avec des paysages sublimes aussi bien en Chartreuse qu'en Vercors et dans Belledonne, ou encore en Matheysine.

Elle reste cependant (relativement) méconnue des cyclistes étrangers, qui sont bien plus attirés par des régions voisines comme celles de Maurienne ou de Bourg-d'Oisans, lesquelles bénéficient bien plus des retombées médiatiques du Tour de France.

Mais c'est un mal pour un bien, on peut encore y pédaler sans être trop dérangé par un tourisme cycliste agressif. :-)
