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!
