Cycling the Route des Grand Alps: Table With A View

A 14-day bicycle trip from Annecy to Nice via the Route des Grand Alps. The Cormet d’Areche lies on a gravel road between Beaufort and Bourg St Maurice so cyclists and cars are rare. Still, just beyond the peak on the Bourg side, a small hostel was serving lunch. It’s downhill the rest of the way to Bourg, so why not? Pick your favorite table.
