As said, I know the region very well by bike. I know the country side roads away from traffic, the viewpoints on the lake, Geneva and the Mont Blanc. I know the easy, intermediate and hard climbs and where to get a good coffee! Here I offer my 'Scenic ride around Geneva country side' . If you are looking for a more challenging ride check out my 'Mountainous ride for road bikers'. Itinerary: We will start our journey in Geneva city from where we will follow the lake to make our way to the Swiss country side. Which is in fact surprisingly close! I will lead you through fields, passed impeccable Swiss farms and vineyards, over small roads and away from traffic. Along the way we will stop at several stunning viewpoints while slowly making our way to a village that sits on top of a hill. Here we will stop for a drink and enjoy a fabulous view on the lake. From there we will circle back to the city. This ride can be done on a road bike, a regular bike or even an e-bike. People of all ages can participate as long as they are fit and have some experience with biking. While this is not a difficult ride, expect to go uphill more than once (5% gradients).
As a true Dutch, I have rode a bicycle for as long as I can remember. Initially biking was just a means of transportation but about five years ago I started to bike for sports, and road biking has become a great passion of mine since. During the last five years I have biked extensively in the Netherlands, Belgium, France and Switzerland. Currently I am based in Geneva and from day one I have explored the the region by bike. I can tell you, it’s truly one of the greatest places to cycle. My plan with this experience is to show you just how beautiful the region is.
Upon request I can provide lunch (sandwiches) . Energy bars
Quite roads, beautiful villages, fields, forrests, and views on the lake, Geneva and the Alps. We stop in a quite village on top of a small hill. Here we will have time to rest, drink and enjoy the views all around.
All you need is a bike and a basic level of fitness. If you don't have a bike we will rent one before the ride! The rental is at our meeting point and I will make sure the bike(s) are reserved
