BEYOND LAKE ANNECY
Lake Annecy, in the Haute-Savoie region of France, is fed by mountain springs and known for its clear water. At its north end, Annecy has a Medieval old town with canals and bridges. The 13th century Chateau de Menthon - Saint-Bernard perches above the Lakeside village of Menthon-Saint bernard. The town of Saint-Jorioz has a popular beach.
There are trails around the shore and pleasure boats dot the lake in the summer, with Multiple col's and a cycle lane around the whole lake circumference.
This ride is most definitely not about speed this experience is about cycling with friends (or new ones) and enjoying where we are.
Each day we will achieve a new cycling challenge, mostly heading to the tops of the numerous col’s (Mountains) that surround Lake Annecy, with amazing views in the Mountains and Descents that range from 8 – 25 km, it’s an experience you won’t get every day.
From our hotel we will cycle a different route each day, always heading back to the same hotel and the amazing Lake Annecy in the evening.
There will be time for swimming in the Lake or you can use the Paddleboards, with Lovely evening meals watching the sunsets, this experience will simply be amazing.
With accommodation for the trip inclusive of breakfast, the only money you’ll need to spend will be at the numerous coffees stops on our routes, and an evening meal in our destinations.
