A region so diverse a turn in the road will bring you to a different world as you cycle between valleys, cross over streams and negotiate less travelled roads.

So, where is the Vercors?

The Vercors are situated in SE France in the Auvergne Rhone Alps straddling the Drome and Isere Departments. A national park with over 6000 square kilometers, lying between the Isere river valley running from Grenoble in the north to Valence along its west flank, boasting a sheer line of limestone cliffs with spectacular views over the Alps running down its eastern flank. Famous for spectacular river gorges and high, ancient roads carved through mammoth limestone walls creating a series of tunnels opening up to spectacular views across the valleys. It offers cyclist's a unique cycling experience on roads less travelled than the busier high Alps, but no less impressive. Velo Vercors is perfectly located in the charming town of St Jean-en-Royans nestled 240m at the gateway to the three major cols up to the Vercors plateau.
