Cycling in Annecy – Mountain Biking Annecy

Brand new for 2017 to make your cycling experience at Lake Annecy even better the bASECAMP cycle hire and cafe is opening in Talloires village.  From the base on the shores of Lake Annecy, in the French Alps, they provide everything you need to enjoy this cycling paradise. They serve the best coffee, rent the best bikes and offer the best local knowledge to help you get the most out of your visit. Whether you are planning an epic road ride into the mountains, sampling the new and exciting world of adventure riding or simply embarking on a leisurely ride around Lake Annecy with the family, Basecamp has the perfect rental bike for you. Make cycling enjoyable for all by trying out an electric assist bike which allows you to venture further and steeper.

During your holiday why not go Cycling in Annecy Sometimes called the Venice of the Alps, beautiful Annecy and its mountain surrounded lake is one of my favorite places to cycle (about 45 minutes from Geneva). It’s one of the most popular tourist sites in France.

Come and enjoy the mountains and the wilderness cycling in Annecy in an adventurous way!

From an easy and fun track to more technical parts (with jumps and drops) , we will adapt the course to your desires so that it become an unforgettable moment for you! 

Cycling in Annecy and surrounds is real heaven.  Fantastic road conditions, meandering hill climbs, stunning views and miles and miles of downhill trails for off-roaders.  For the more relaxed ride, there is of course, the famous car-free cycle path around the lake.  But also nearly all car-free is the 45km cycle from Annecy to Albertville, surrounded by mountains the whole way.  The Tour de France summited the fearsome Mnt Semnoz in 2013 on the west side of the lake. We offer a descent to try the downhill bike or to get better in Annecy. Tracks, trail courses, forest…all a world away from cars! To truly discover down hill mountainbiking, ride with the professionals!
We offer superb rides around Annecy where we alternate between technical rides and rides based entirely on descending. Our qualified guides will show you the most important techniques to get started!
Mountain Bike takes place in the Semnoz’s mountain, on the west side of the Lake.
The meeting point is in the Takamaka agency.
Then you go up the Semnoz with a shuttle.
With our guide, you go for a downhill race of 25 km between lake and mountains.
For about 3 hours, you’ll discover the pleasure of mountain biking, on one of the most beautiful downhill tracks of the country.
