Paris to Geneva Cycle
This exciting, short cycling challenge links the two classic cities of Paris and Geneva, crossing the border with a fabulous climb in the beautiful Jura Mountains.
The route takes you south-east from Paris, crossing rolling chalk hills, quiet woodland and rural plateaux. The landscape is dotted with small medieval towns and Romanesque churches as you cycle through the famous vineyard regions of Champagne and Burgundy. Skirting Dijon, you will head to the Roman spa town of Lons-le-saunier, at the foot of the Jura. Discover the strength that lays in your legs as you tackle the hair-pin bends of the Col de la Faucille (1232m), the gateway into Switzerland and the toughest part of the challenge. The journey finishes beside the lake in beautiful Geneva.
