A Weekend of Biking and Running Around Annecy

An energetic weekend for the keen runner and biker centred around the beautiful French town of Annecy.

Description

Most people visit Annecy and think they'd quite like to spend a decade there but for those with only a few days to try and experience the biking and running in the area, these 3 routes will give you a taste of what is on offer.

All of the routes can be reached from Annecy town centre on foot or bike so you won't need a car to enjoy them. All are quite short so it's possible (albeit tiring) to do all 3 in a couple of days. Mere mortals will probably tackle one per day over a long weekend and enjoy some of Annecy's excellent cafes and restaurants with the remaining hours in their days!
