Lake Annecy The Perfect Cycling Destination For Womens Bike Tours!

Annecy is fondly known as the “Venise of Savoie” it is positioned between Geneva and Chambery in the region of the Rhone-Alps, the town sits on the northern edge of the famous “Lake Annecy”. It won’t take you long to understand why it was given this unique name with the canal waters entering from the lake and passing through the enchanting cobbled streets and narrow medieval alley ways. Annecy holds its own very special reputation to the French, with many Parisian’s escaping here at any opportunity. Undoubtedly you will agree with them and truly experience escapism that will remain with you for a lifetime!

We had an absolutely fabulous time on our Womens Lake Annecy Bike Tour with the group, you run a truly professional operation and at no time did I ever feel that our safety was compromised. There was a great balance of cycling, photos, laughs mixed with coffee time and delicious lunches. As leisure cyclists your approach to showing us how to handle the bikes and road protocol was done very well. Instead of bombarding us with too much information at the start of our 5 days, you gradually gave us tips which made us feel that we were actually improving our technique over time. We felt very fortunate to have selected such a stunning location to be based for the rides and the breathtaking scenery while riding made the Practice Bicycle experience very special. Staying in the one hotel made things so simple and uncomplicated unlike many of the tours I researched that required daily packing for a new hotel/destination. I would certainly recommend your cycle company to friends as it was such an exciting, challenging and extremely friendly group for our holiday.

Womens Lake Annecy Bike Tour
Park Massif des Bauges
Comfortable Ride Route:
Distance 55km/34mi
Ascent 700m/2300ft
We love the Bauges Park and can’t wait to share it with you. Today our discoveries take us away from the Lake and behind the mountain of Semnoz before entering the Park Massif des Bauges. With 14 little villages dotted among the green valleys of this bowl shaped park, there’s lots of quite, traffic free roads waiting to be discovered.
The ideal time for a cafe break in the heart of the Bauges is the village of Lescheraines, with local potters and artisans living and working in these tiny hamlets it’s a gem to discover.
Riding at your pace, the perfect pace we’ll head to our lunch spot, kick back, relax and take in the luscious green landscape as far as the eye can see. Bridget (Owner/Operator) truly loves to Practice Bicycle on these perfect cycling roads and can make you laugh with some of her early adventures riding here!

Womens Lake Annecy Bike Tour
Piste Cyclable
Comfortable Ride Route:
Distance 60km/37mi
Ascent 330m/1000ft
After yesterday’s green adventures, today it’s a day of turquoise, with the unbelievable beauty of the cleanest lake in Europe, the turquoise waters of Lake Annecy. It’s an incredible sight and a memory that will stay with you for a life time.
This Velo Pista (Bike Path) tour is the flattest ride possible in the French Alps, it’s a converted railway line that over the last 20 years as been extended down the valley all the way to the town of Ugine. Tranquility would be the best word to describe todays discovery, as we pass between the lake and the mountains, castles and hamlets. We’re heading to the town of Faverges, at the base of the glacial valley that formed Lake Annecy. With the Chateau of Faverges towering above the town and guarding the entrance to the valley, we’ll find the perfect lunch spot to top off our day of discoveries.
Womens Lake Annecy Bike Tour
Reblochon Capital
Comfortable Ride Route:
Distance 50km/31mi
Ascent 520m/1700ft
From the comfort of the bike path to the entrance to the Grand Alps. Our discoveries today take us to the capital of the famous Alpine cheese production ‘Reblochon’ and the town of Thones.
Passing the 10th century Chateau de Menthon-Saint-Bernard, perched high overlooking the lake is just the start of our discovery ride as we explore this valley, local knowledge is everything enjoying small roads that are often forgotten with todays fast pace of life. With the Fier river flowing off the Alps towards us, we can stop for a moment at the Museum to the French Resistance and memorial to many who lost their lives in pursuit of Freedom. Cafe time is fast approaching Pain aux raisins or Pain or Chocolate in the square of Eglise Saint Maurice sounds perfect don’t you think?
Discover more tiny roads than you ever thought possible along the edge of the Tete Ronde and Tete Parmelan two huge mountain peaks shadowing over us on our return ride to Annecy. Arriving on the corner of the Lake it’s time for a superb restaurant lunch on the terrace together with our renowned French Chef and friend Carine Veyrat with her ‘Queen of the Meadows’, bliss for the eyes and the palate!
Womens Lake Annecy Bike Tour
Val der Fier River
Comfortable Ride Route:
Distance 60km/37miles
Ascent 650m/2100ft
Yesterday we witnessed the cold water of the Fier river as it started its journey in the heart of the Alps, today we follow its journey from Annecy towards one of the major rivers of Europe, the Rhone River.
Green patch work quilt is how we best describe todays discovery bike ride as we’re on route from the Val der Fier to the Gorge der Fier. The pedals can turn freely as we feel as though we are travelling slightly downhill on todays path of discovery. We all know the expression what goes up must come down, sometimes by bike it’s the other way around!
With the Val der Fier rocks behind us we can take a break in the village of Rumilly, ready for our uphill travels back to Annecy and the Gorge der Fier. France is truly an amazingly beautiful country and full of surprises, you wouldn’t image that the manufacturer Tefal of the kitchen appliance and non-stick cookware is in this town!
Our discoveries, efforts and laughs are drawing to an end and so must our wonderful hidden restaurants of Lake Annecy.
Reward the legs one last time with this tasty mid-day lunch together and celebrate our discoveries and new friendships formed and memories of a lifetime.
