Itinerary - We can customise this trip for you!

 

Day 1: Arrive in Annecy

We recommend a morning flight. After arriving you will be met and transferred to your chosen hotel in Annecy. You will have time to build your bike (or pick up your hire bike) and grab some lunch. In the afternoon you will have time to take a spin round this beautiful lake on the cycle path.

 

Day 2: La Resistance Route

Today's gravel ride starts from Talloire. The route tackles 2 tough road climbs and 4 gravel climbs. The highlight being the 14.5km unmade mountain road that offers a great view of Mont Blanc. This ride takes you up to the  Plateau des Glieres, right up to the National Monument to La Resistance and also past the Necropolis and Museum at Morette, at the base of the Plateau.

 

Day 3: Semnoz

This route takes you up a tough gravel track to the summit of the giant that sits by the lake; Mount Semnoz. You have the option to retrace your steps back or take either of the excellent road descents back to Lake Anncey.

 

Day 4: Departure day

There is one last chance to stretch the legs before we transfer you back to the airport. We recommend you get an afternoon or evening flight. If you want to extend this trip, this is possible. Simply contact us.
