Cyclotour du Léman
May 24, 2015
The Cyclotour du Léman is one of the biggest cycling events in the Alps, with over 3000 participants in 2014. It consists of cycling the 180km around Lake Léman (aka Lake Geneva), starting and finishing in Lausanne and riding clockwise. Officially it is not a race and there is no classification. However some very impressive average speeds are recorded – the fastest groups typically take around 4h15 to complete the tour, averaging in excess of 42km/h.
It is a fantastic opportunity to practice riding at high speed in a peloton over a long distance, in magnificant scenery. You have a real sense of achievement once you have made the complete tour and look back at the distance covered. Besides, there is something uniquely satisfying about riding round a large lake: there are no short cuts!
We will participate in the Cyclotour during the Long Weekend Training Camp May 22-25.
