Challenge Route Day 2: Geneva -> Chexbres

We’re off ! You will follow small country roads and vineyard paths before stopping for a picnic lunch in the lakeside town of Rolle.

Get back on your bike, but relax: You’re on the Swiss riviera and many of the villages along the route will be hosting festivals, concerts and sporting events. Make sure to take your time and get a taste of the local color. We will also pass through the larger city of Lausanne. Consider exploring the lakefront or stop at the Olympic Museum…we pass right in front !

Later in the day we climb through winding roads of the Lavaux wine region. We'll stop at a local cave to taste the regional white wines and then it’s off to our hotel in the small town of Chexbres where you’ll sit and contemplate Lake Geneva and the grape vines below.
