A Greater Geneva cycling experience in Switzerland and France that can be on self-guided basis or with a support vehicle while you ride the Arve and the Salève.
This Greater Geneva cycling experience in Switzerland and France can begin and end at various points along the loop including Annemasse and Geneva. The full loop from Annemasse is 50 km and it can be done using gravel bikes, hybrid bikes, or e-bikes any day between March and November.
Trip can be done on a self-guided basis (any number of riders) or with a support vehicle (parties of 6 or more). In the space of a few hours, experience an off-the-beaten-track adventure in both France and Switzerland at the foot of the Salève, the iconic Genevois mountain.
You will follow the Arve river towards the Swiss border, passing vineyards, orchards and farmland before attacking the slopes of the Salève and discovering the unspoilt natural surroundings of our region following tracks and paths to La Chartreuse de Pomier.
The route back is a mixture of paths and minor roads… the views across to Geneva and Lake Geneva are incredible.
