Your trip begins at the gondola station in Anzère with the easiest stage: a gondola ride up to the middle station. From here, you ride across the alpine pastures above the resort of Anzère; along the way, you will no doubt see herds of cows of the famous Herens breed. At Les Rousses, you reach the road up to the Tseuzier dam, which you follow downhill. When you arrive above Pracombère, a farming hamlet of old wooden buildings, you take the unpaved road to the right which climbs up to the Bisse de Sion. You then follow the course of this historical irrigation channel until you reach the hamlet of Les Grillesses, before riding along the Route des Luys back to the starting point.
