London to Geneva Cycle

30 Aug 2017

10 Days. 3 Counties. 2 Capital cities. 1 Memorable adventure!

Leaving from London, your first day will take you through picturesque Kent countryside, across the Channel, through the small villages and medieval market towns of Northern France and onto Paris and the evocative landmark of the Eiffel Tower. After a day to rest, you'll be back in the saddle, cycling through sunflower fields, quiet woodland and rolling chalk hills dotted with small medieval towns and sleepy villages. The landscape varies from farmland to forests and the famous vineyards around Chablis as you pass through Burgundy en-route to the beautiful Jura Mountains. The ride culminates in crossing the mountains; your biggest challenge. The gentle rolling hills that form much of the landscape en-route will provide you with the perfect preparation for the hair-pin bends of the Col de la Faucille (1323m), a climb that has featured many times in the Tour de France. Crossing into Switzerland, you finish with a wonderful descent; after long days in the saddle and a challenging day in the Jura, you'll be very happy to see Geneva and its beautiful lake! GRADE: Tough
