From central Geneva, head out through Eaux-Vives and Champel, eventually joining up with the Voie Verte, a cycling and pedestrian path that connects Geneva with neighbouring France. It’s a great way to get further out of the city – safely away from cars.
You’ll pass through Chêne-Bourg and the town of Puplinge – and then the real cycling adventure begins.
We headed off through amber-coloured wheat fields on a narrow path, only passing one other cyclist. We admired the grand, solitary trees casting the only shade in the sun-drenched fields.
We biked through a farm advertising free-range eggs, and we saw the very hens in question! Given that our bikes aren’t as smooth a ride as a car, we decided against buying fresh eggs – safer another day.
