Riding a bike is all about discovery, when you add in one of the most beautiful locations in the world – Lake Annecy Bike Tours you have arrived in a true “Cycling Paradise”.
Lake Annecy Bike Tours have been described as the pinnacle of discovery for all cyclists possibly because of both the quality of the amazing riding and the unbelievable hidden gems on offer!
It could be a hidden village that would only be discovered when you are riding your bike the medieval village of Alby-sur-Cheran, for instance. Maybe a precious moment that you will remember for the rest of your life when you first saw the ‘white mountain’ Mt Blanc, shimmering in the distance with clouds hugging it’s peak as you crest the summit of the Col des Aravis, pedaling high into the sky.
Or possibly and for many of our discerning cycling guests a well deserved lunch stop at a hidden gem restaurant with the best flavours of France like Par Monts et Par Vaulx which really confirms that you are in ‘Cycling Paradise’ both on and off the bike a journey of total discovery.
Par Monts et Par Vaulx is also one of Practicbicycle Bike Tours favourite gem restaurants and it doesn’t really matter how you get there! This gem discovery was found in the late 90’s when our good friend Andre owner of the local bike shop wanted to show us an ‘easy’ ride in the French Alps, it’s the perfect comfortable ride with a kaleidoscope of views all within a couple of hours of great pedaling from Lake Annecy.
But first back to the perfect lunch spot in the country, sit on the terrace and forget everything that life normally throws at you. Stop the clock…. relax with a leisurely lunch, amazing fresh flavours that the cuisine of France just can’t be beaten, the ambience you just won’t want to leave….
