Via Rhona: Geneva to Haute-Savoie along the Rhône by bike

Last week, on the day of the “Jeûne Genevois”, I went for a ride along the Rhône following (loosely) the route known as Via Rhona, that goes  from Geneva to the town of Valleiry in Haute-Savoie (actually it is just a segment: The complete Via Rhona goes from the Rhône Glacier to the Mediterranean Sea) . I had already tried it before but I was not able to finish it then. Now I went all the way and, although it was quite cloudy with occasional rain, I had a great time.

A PDF with details of the route can be found here.
