Track Description


I knew that leaving at 7pm for a 3 hours bike ride wasn't such a good idea... Well, I did it anyway, frustrated not to take advantage enough of the surroundings.So I packed my head torch, a bit of food, plenty of water and a map, heading towards Fressinieres then les Roberts, then les Aujards, and the lac des Lauzes.When I reached the lac des lauzes, the view was breathtaking but I didn't really have time to enjoy it fully as the light was beginning to fade and the way back was still pretty long. Off we go then ... Nice downhill on a twisted and narrow footpath then climb up and follow the arete to a big drop. At this point it was getting quite dark and very steep, leaving feeling a bit exposed and stupid :-S ... Well, time to switch on the head torch and push on. Scrambling/Climbing down with the bike wasn't really fun but I got their in the end and managed to reach a nice path going down back to the valley. Hairpins, tree root and rocs in the night... Hell, that was fun!
Depuis Fressinieres, monter jusqu'au Robert puis direction les Aujards et enfin on prend un chemin sur la droite direction le col des LauzesLe chemin n'est pas facile a trouver au niveau du lac des Lauzes. Il part a gauche du lac dans la foret. Les balises jaunes ne sont visible qu'une fois sur le chemin mais il y a un petit cairn au depart (dans l'herbe).Apres, ca ca monte, ca descend. Suivre la direction du col de l'Aiguille tout le long. Il faut porter dans le velo dans 2 passages tres raide puis apres ca roule bien jusqu'au retour dans la vallee.
