Having tackled Mont Salève, you come to one of the easiest stretches along the P’tites Routes du Soleil® cycle route. For 40km, the way provides easy, essentially downhill, cycling. Descending from Mont Salève, enjoy some extremely pretty viewing points before reaching Les Usses Valley, where you enter typical Haute Savoie countryside in a steep, verdant valley. Riding past old stone buildings, including churches, and past vineyards, along the way you’ll encounter one of the historic pilgrimage paths to Santiago de Compostela.
