ViaRhôna by bike

ViaRhôna has a grand ambition – to lead you by bike, beside the Rhône River, from Lake Geneva to France’s Mediterranean beaches!

Follow a route linking the Mediterranean to northwest Europe that has been used by successive civilizations for over 2,000 years. Wonderful landscapes, towns, villages, vineyards and gastronomy await you along the way.

The work required to complete the whole ViaRhôna route to the Mediterranean will take many years, but right now, experienced cyclists can tackle the provisional itinerary, covering 450km, through the Rhône-Alpes Region. For gentler cycling, try out the many stages already in place that are accessible to all, taking you along greenways and cycle tracks beside the Rhône.
