Lake Annecy

A hot first day on tour, no better way to keep cool than to take a swim and creating your own breeze with a ride. A gentle lap of the lake half of which was on the superb well used cycleway that passes right by the campsite.

30 miles round the lake, there is a really nice part on the far side just outside Annecy centre A raised waterside boardwalk and nice chill out zones. There was a big festival in Annecy for the Bastille holiday, so despite having to wait for it to get proper dark at 10pm, it was well worth checking out. Afterwards the long lakeside cycleway really came into its own. Several beers and no problems getting back with a great ride down the path in the dark with super views of the night life reflecting off the lake.
A great body re-charge and sleep catch up, now time for some serious climbing.
