The Venice of the Alps. Here are my top 5 Cycling Climbs from beautiful Lake Annecy.
If you want to cycle a loop around lake Annecy, here are a few tips:
In 1967 a local farmer – Jean Poncet – joined two mountain forestry roads, one from Queige the other from Venthon creating this fantastic “Col.”
Simon posted a comment describing how great this route was. That was all the motivation I needed.
I am not sure why it has taken me this long to cycle up to Signal de Bisanne. Perhaps fear!
A simple there and back route, up the scenic but not too difficult Col des Montets and Col de la Forclaz.
March and April is the best time to do small and medium climbs in the Alps as the weather can be warm, the roads fine, and the surrounding mountains stunningly snow covered.
This is a fantastic climb high above Lake Annecy – worth re-doing on a clear sunny day as views everywhere.
