Itinerary description

Liaison des frontières Italiennes et Suisse par les deux savoie

Vous pouvez améliorer la trace en passant par la route de la soif entre le col des aravis et Chaucisse. Attention de vérifier si l'accès n'est pas interdit par panneaux.

70% off-road, terrain relativement rocheux qui permet à des pneus mixtes de faire l'affaire !

La section entre Montvernier et la frontière Italienne n'est pas très travaillé et est exclusivement routière pour le moment (pas eu le temps de faire de recos)

Attention à l'enneigement entre novembre et mai qui peut vous obliger à faire des détours !

    Le lac du Mont Cenis se contourne aussi par la piste à gauche du lac, du village abandonné de la Grande Croix jusqu'aux Rivets, ensuite c'est de la route étroite jusqu'à rejoindre la D1006. Praticable en gros trail chargé sans problème, et en plus complètement légal.

    Une petite vidéo de la piste en question pour complément d'infos, car avant d'y aller "en vrai" je n'avais pas trouvé des masses de renseignements sur l'endroit :

    I have followed this trail  View more

    I did this ride on my own on 27th June 2020 riding my CRF250L Rally.

    I started on the route at 09:30 with the aim of completing it in one day. I did stop for periodic breaks of ten minutes or so every hour or so, but even with riding all day, I had to give up at 19:00 having reached Saint-Jean-De-Maurienne, which was still about 80km (estimate 90 minutes) from the end of the route.

    There were some short parts of the route which were along trials not open for motorized traffic, but most were easily bypassed. There was also one quite big section through a valley after Flumet where the road had been closed altogether. Again, bypassing wasnt an issue.

    The best parts of the route were going over a couple of the mountains next to Albertville, followed by a long climb up gravel roads to the top of the ski resort at the Sommet Madeleine. This was huge fun climbing to 2100m with some snow still on the ground.

    In conclusion, in my opinion, if you are competent rider with good tires, it is possible to do this route on a big bike, but it will get difficult in some places. Also, my recommendation would be careful when going over the Sommet Madeleine on your own. I did it solo but in really good conditions, but would have been nervous up there in windy or cold conditions.
