The Upper French Alps: Geneva to Geneva — 4 nights/5 days
|Day 1: Arrive in Geneva — Transfer to your hotel — Loop ride (50 km/31 miles, 1,230 meters/4,035 ft of climbing)
You will be greeted at the airport by a Cyclomundo representative and transferred to your hotel. Based on your preferences, we can accommodate you in Geneva (should you wish to stay in a “city environment”) or in Cruseilles (a countryside setting). In either case, we will provide you with a loop that will take you up our local mountain (Mont Salève) the “easy way” (from Cruseilles or Annemasse depending on your place of stay). Needless to say, the views from the top are breathtaking.
|Day 2: Cruseilles
(or Geneva) — Le Grand Bornand (Long Option: 105 km/65 miles, 3,015 meters/9,895 ft of climbing;
Short Option without Col de la Croix-Fry: 50 km/31 miles, 900 meters/2,960 ft of climbing)
Our route will take you around the visually stunning Annecy Lake and over two “classic” climbs: Col de la Forclaz and Col de la Croix-Fry. You will lodge in the pretty village of Le Grand Bornand. Please note that if you choose to stay in Geneva, we recommend you take a morning train (trains are equipped with special areas for bikes) and start your ride from La Roche-sur-Foron.
|Day 3: Le
Grand Bornand — Onnion (Long Option: 112 km/70 miles, 3,730 meters/12,250 ft of climbing; Short
Option without Col de l’Encrenaz and Col de la Ramaz: 57 km/35 miles, 1,395 meters/4,575 ft of climbing)
Another day of rewarding climbs. Ride steady and save some breath for the views! From Le Grand Bornand, you will climb the classic Col de la Colombière (the easy side!). From Cluses on the Arve valley floor, your ride will take you up to Les Gets via Col de la Joux Plane before reaching Morzine. Although our short option allows you to freewheel to your destination, we highly recommend our long option which will take you by Mont-Chéry before riding down to Onnion, your day’s destination. Did we forget to mention the long option’s fun climbs? Col de l’Encrenaz (1,433 m) and Col de la Ramaz (1,559 m).
|Day 4: Onnion — Anthy-sur-Léman (66 km/41 miles, 1,040 meters/3,405 ft of climbing)
The area known as “Le Chablais” will be your day’s riding grounds, with Lake Geneva as a backdrop! Le Chablais is so popular with cyclists that the World Cycling Centre (Centre mondial du cyclisme) and the International Cyclist Union (Union Cycliste Internationale) have their headquarters here. Easier climbs will take you from one valley to the next before heading towards Lake Geneva. The last few miles will take place along the Lake all the way to your hotel, a few steps from the waterfront.
|Day 5: Anthy loop in Le Chablais. Transfer to Geneva and departure (89 km/55 miles, 1,470 meters/4,825 ft of climbing)
This morning, enjoy a scenic loop through Le Chablais. Back in Anthy, we’ll meet you for your transfer to Geneva.
