Cycling the Route des Grand Alps: Geeze Annecy

A 14-day bicycle trip from Annecy to Nice along the Route des Grand Alps. Annecy is the preferred staging ground. A day can profitably be spent adjusting to time zones, assembling bicycles and exploring the Old Town. Cheese everywhere. When you’re ready, Alpine roads begin 5 minutes outside town.
