ViaRhôna from Vulbens to Seyssel
This ViaRhôna stage takes you up and down through spectacular scenery, offering splendid views over the Rhône Valley. This stage uses roads that can be busy, so it is only recommended for experienced cyclists.
You go through the dramatic Défilé de l’Ecluse before reaching Seyssel, an important river port since ancient times. Today it’s a charming stop, both for cultural activities and leisure ones based around the river.
Given the steep slopes, busy roads (the D 908A and D 14), major junctions and lack of signposting between Clarafond and Châtel, this stage requires extreme care. Until the route is made safer, make sure you are well kitted-out and remain extremely vigilant. As you arrive at Seyssel you do join a cycle track.
From 01/01 to 30/11.
