Geneva-Lyon France 2022 - Rhône Cycle Path
The starting point for your cycle holiday in France is in Schwitzerland. The water fountain in Lake Geneva salutes goodbye while you leave the Swiss mountains for your splendid cycle holiday in France. You will cycle along the River Rhône, either directly beside the river or the cycle path leads through charming villages, sunflower fields and vineyards. The mighty Mt. Mont Blanc disappears into the horizon and the bike tour leads more and more into the French ambience and you will be drawn into its way of “savoir-vivre”. Delicious red wine, crunchy French baguette accompanied from spicy cheese and a lot of time to the enjoyment, this puts out the French way of life.
