"the Grand Traverse of the French Alps": van Geneve via Thonon les Bains, Col de l'Iseran, Col du Galibier, Col d'Izoard en Cime de la Bonette naar Nice.

This guide describes eight challenging yet picturesque cycle tours in the French Alps - seven circuits of roughly one week, plus the two-week 'Grand Traverse' from Geneva to Nice. The 'classic' high passes of the French Alps are included, where cyclists can follow in the tracks of the great champions of the Tour de France - though probably at a more modest speed! The routes also traverse many lower areas, following quiet roads through open pastures, dark forests, deep gorges and unspoilt villages.

. Routes covered are Tours of the Ain, Chablais-Aravis, Mont Blanc, Chartreuse-Bauges, Belledonne, Ecrins and Grandes Rousses, Southern Alps, and the Grand Traverse of the French Alps

. Demanding routes aimed at fit and experienced cyclists

. Circuits divided into day stages - generally SO-80km per day, with an average of 1 0OO-lS00m height gain

. Clear maps of the route, with profiles for each day stage, to help with route planning

. Route outline, together with list of facilities and services, given for each day stage
