Cycling the Route des Grand Alps: Lake Roselend

A 14-day bicycle trip from Annecy to Nice via the Route des Grand Alps. The Beaufortain is known for its pastoral beauty and ubiquitous cycling roads. The ride over the Col du Pre from Areches, down to Lake Roselend and back to Beaufort via the D925 is surely one of the prettiest loops in all of France.
