From Geneva Lake to Lyon by bike

I cycle often

More than 300km from Geneva Lake to the capital of gastronomy on ViaRhôna

Heading out from magnificent Lake Geneva, this ViaRhôna section meanders through the mountains and valleys of the Haut-Rhône, or Upper Rhône, and on to the elegant historic city of Lyon. The landscapes as you cross Savoie and the Bugey are breathtaking, with gorges, lakes and marshes, and the typical old villages prove a delight. This section is physically challenging and incomplete as yet, but it includes some lovely Rhône-side greenways that are accessible to all. If you are with your family, prefer a start from Seyssel.
