Last month, Hattie and I went to Annecy. We took our Prompt D927 steel bikes with the intention of trying the route of the 2013 étape du tour.


On the first day we took the bike path to the southern end of the lake,  before returning by the Col de la Forclaz – a wickedly steep climb.  The next day we were caught in a large thunderstorm whilst ascending the Tour de France route up Annecy Semnoz. We ran out of time on the last day for the etape route so we did a shortened version finishing with the southern ascent of Semnoz.

The riding was fantastic even with the August traffic. The views from the climbs are stunning and the bike path makes for an easy ride out of the town centre. A place well worth visiting.
