“ On the Rhone again ”
This 6 day cycle from Geneva to Lyon, mostly following La Via Rhona, is a fantastic trip along side the torquoise blue waters of the Rhone, under the shadow of the Jura mountains and more distant higher Alpine peaks. (We enjoyed looking up at the mountains, but the route is perfectly planned to avoid any strenuous climbing) You cycle back roads through rural farmland and most of the route is practically traffic free. There are some very short sections on busier roads for a km or 2, but if you are a regular cyclist you probably wouldn't even give these sections a second thought. It is worth planning where you might want to have a lunch break the following day, and ensure any restaurant is open, many places seemed to close at 12noon, then open later in the day again. Of course packing a little cheese, bread and wine picnic is always a good back-up plan. The suggested timings for each route section on the app seem very accurate and allow for many photo opportunity stops and a very leisurely cycling pace, afterall you are on holidays!
