This ViaRhôna stage takes you up and down through spectacular scenery, offering splendid views over the Rhône Valley. 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. This stage uses roads that can be busy, so it is only recommended for experienced cyclists.

The route
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.

  • prachtige site - pnagel

    Heel blij ben ik geworden van deze interessante site. Het maakt fietsen in Frankrijk en in het bijzonder langs de Rhône erg prettig en vijlig.

  • Heavy traffic - AFRF

    Forgot: rating is 4. Accomodation: Hotel Beau Sejour, nice little hotel with restaurant and good meal. Book in advance

  • Heavy traffic - AFRF

    Nothing to add on Brownings comment. Maybe it's better on Saturday or Sunday without the trucks. But during the week really not nice. Anyway impressive scenery The GPS track is different from the sign posting Since i do not know the rating scheme (is 1 excellent or lousy?) i'll use mine: 1 = Excellent, 5 lousy
