Bouzaréah
Description Boniver describes the circuit as follows:
  • Start "La Bouzaréah" desente route W65
  • Route N41 left and after 50 m - 150 ft left to El Biar (route W119)
  • After 2 km - 1.25 mi (light climb) stay left - you have after 200 m - 600 ft a dubble left
  • And now with the twisting hill climb (4 km - 2.5 mi to the top of hill)
  • On the top (Place Martunelli - cross road to "Tribu" and "Ceboite") 180° to left
  • and back desente route W65: right you see the school (école) and "Quartier air the France"
I tried to draw this circuit on the map: my work doesn’t fit exactly with this description, but I think it’s a good approximation, even if I have no evidence about it.

Bouzaréah (approximated map. It could be wrong)

Due to technical problems, temporarily it’s no longer possible to see the circuits on Google Maps embedded in the current page.
This feature will be restored as soon as I figure out how to do (any help would be appreciated!)
