A former railway track that linked Albertville, it was transformed in 1974 to accommodate many cyclists. (even more during the summer season) It is 37km long and connects Annecy to Ugine, via Sevrier, Saint-Jorioz, Duingt, Doussard, Giez and Marlens. It offers visitors a wide variety of landscapes, from the lakeside to the countryside. The great success of this itinerary - one of the most frequented in France - inspired the agglomeration, which now reflects on the right bank.You can also close the loop up the East bank: pay attention to the steep slope around Talloires.Book your Annecy rental with My Home In Annecy and leave your car in the garage!
