My second challenge on bicycle !

Lake d'Annecy tour !

In Albertville and the surrounding area, the bike route starts at the airfield in Tournon, traverses Albertville, passes through Ugine, and continues along a designated bike path towards Annecy. Reserved exclusively for cyclists, inline skaters, pedestrians (only along the shoulder), and persons with reduced mobility.
Vertical gain : 150 m
Michelin Map : n°244

The return is then via the north shore of the lake. A variant via the Forclaz pass is possible for the more trained (+ 600m of altitude difference to be expected). Pay attention to the section between Talloires and Doussard which can be delicate because of the intensity of the car traffic.

Départ : Ugine
Altitude max : 556 m
Difficulté: Moyenne
Distance : 72.1 km
Dénivellation : 407 m
