The Upper French Alps: Geneva to Geneva
Image supplied by Cyclomundo
You'll be riding in what we affectionately call "our playground," since we cycle these roads regularly
Believe us, you'll be mesmerized by the scenery! With Lake Geneva and Mont-Blanc as a backdrop, your daily rides snake through the Chablais mountainous area and skirt the southern shore of Lake Geneva, one of the few spots in the world that can cause blisters from excessive photo taking. Finally, on your last day, you'll cross the lake in Yvoire, an impossibly photogenic Medieval village that extends into the lake on a striking peninsula, and ride through the Swiss Jura.
In between, you'll conquer some of this area's most famous climbs: Col de la Forclaz, Col de la Croix-Fry, Col de la Colombière, Col de la Joux Plane, Col de l'Encrenaz, Col de la Ramaz, Col de la Faucille, Col de la Givrine, Col du Marchairuz.
This is not an easy bike trip! It is an ideal tour for those who can comfortably handle 100 km (60 miles) per day with 2,000 meters (6,560 ft) of climbing. If you fit the profile, this is an amazing and rewarding tour: the views are magnificent, the hotels are all in charming villages, and the food is to die for... all in all, an incredible 5-day experience!
