Labeled "Vélo et Fromages", this route offers a beautiful incursion into the heart of the Massif des Bauges to discover its gastronomy.
From Chambéry, the ascent of the Col des Prés by which this circuit begins is tough, but then rewarded by a magnificent dive into the heart of the Bauges Geopark from which you will come out via the Col du Frêne, with a view of Mont Blanc as a bonus. Returning via the Combe de Savoie, you move through the middle of the vineyards of Savoie, another gastronomic jewel of our territory.
Don't forget to stop at one of the "Vélo et Fromages" dairy producers to taste the famous Tome des Bauges and visit the farm. And why not also stop off at a winegrower in the Combe de Savoie to enhance your cheese as it should be!
