Cycling the Route des Alps: Orange Flowers at the Cormet d'Areche

A 14-day bicycle trip from Annecy to Nice via the Route des Grand Alps. The road passing over the Cormet d’Areche between Beaufort and Bourg St Maurice is unpaved for 6km so few venture here. Those who do are rewarded with outstanding scenery.
