  • again, dont miss the turn

  • Morzine

    at 151km
  • Option to go via Les Gets or Samoens. Morzine pretty dead outside the ski season.
    Or head up the switchbacks into Avoriaz. Do that only after a few good rains in the Spring. Lots of winter gravel otherwise.

  • Taninges

    at 167km
  • Stop for a coffe, you've earned it.

  • Cluses

    at 177km
  • The Col de la Colombiere still closed. So bypass Cluses on the south, same for Bonneville.

  • Scionzier

    at 179km
  • Bonneville

    at 193km
  • Petit Bornand

    at 202km
  • In the summer head up to the Col de la Glieres. Last bit of road is unpaved but you get a mountain lodge with typical Savoyard food.

  • D12 hey we were on that road before

    at 213km
  • D4 junction. In the summer can go over the Colombier. Grand Bornand quite busy at all times of the year, many decent terraces to soak up the sun and lunch. If it is not sunny, you should not be here.

  • Saint Jean de Sixt

    at 213km
  • The long way home via La Clusaz and the Cold des Arvis on teh D909, but this early in the season opt for the westerly route to Thones.

  • Thônes

    at 225km
  • Annecy

    at 245km
  • The road layout is a mess.

  • Annecy-le-Vieux

    at 247km
  • Cruseilles

    at 260km
  • You can take the D1201, but the D15 is by far the more interesting option

  • Entering Geneva, Switzerland

  • Veyrier

    at 287km
  • Reentering Switzerland.
