SMALLEST PUBLIC BEACH IN GENEVA
The road makes a few bends here and there; at km 26.9 make a right at a triangular intersection (ignore the Genève sign). After a couple of bends, the road straightens out, but don’t go too fast; at km 27.7, stop at the red fire hydrant and walk down the Chemin du Port-Bleu to the smallest public beach in Geneva ! Or in Switzerland, or even the world? A hidden jewel, so don’t tell anyone else! And take a dip if it’s hot!
Back on your bike, and at km 28, don’t be tempted to make a right and continue along the lake, it’s a dead-end. Instead, make a left, then an immediate right, to begin the last climb (sorry!) At km 29.3 you’ll hit the main road from Hermance; make a right, and few hundred meters later, at 30, make a right at the roundabout, and here’s your reward – a fast descent, and then you will cruise the last few km along the lake, admiring the sailboats, the swimmers, the tanners, the mountains, the cathedral and of course the iconic jet d’eau!  One warning: be very mindful of pedestrians around Genève Plage, be patient and courteous .
Voilà, here you are back at the Jardin Anglais. If you feel like your legs got a workout, remember, it wasn’t all flat!
