Wednesday – Tour du Plateau de Glières


80 km, 1425 m vertical

Assemble at 08:45 for departure at 09:00.

Today’s ride begins with a long descent to Thônes and then a lovely route cycling through rolling countryside. We pass through several attractive villages before the easy climb to the Col des Fleuries (920 m) and the descent to St Pierre en Faucigny.

We return to La Clusaz via the Gorges du Borne, a beautiful winding road cut through the narrow valley above the river Borne.

Back at the hotel between 12.30 and 1 pm for lunch in a restaurant of your choice (not included). You then have the rest of the day free to explore La Clusaz or the surrounding area, on or off your bike …
