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!
