Description

A very popular circuit with local cyclists, the Mauriennaise is an excellent way of exploring the countryside and villages of the Lower Maurienne Valley. The route follows quiet, secondary roads and avoids the long climbs that are a feature of so many of the cycling circuits in the area.

There is an excellent road surface in this area.

You can drink water and eat in all the villages in this area, and the nearest bike repair shop is located in Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne.

You can admire the Cathedrale of Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne, and "L'Aura" in Sainte-Marie-de-Cuines.

There are some museums and galeries that you can discover : for example "Le Félicien" museum, and the milk cooperative of La Chambre and its production of Beaufort.

To conclude, you can have a relaxing moment, with some lakes (Saint-Rémy-de-Maurienne, Saint-Alban-d'Hurtières and Villargondran)
