There are four distances to choose from ranging from the 180km Tour du Lac to the 60km ride from Geneva to Lausanne through the La Côte wine region.

Lausanne to Lausanne – 176km Tour du Lac

The full 180km cycle around lake Léman from Lausanne to Lausanne, known as the “Tour du Lac” locally, departs from Lausanne near to the lake front home of the International Olympic Committee.

At 180km the route is long enough to make it a great sportive challenge whilst at the same time the modest elevation profile means that Cyclotour du Léman is a perfect early season sportive if you are training for sportive such as La Marmotte or L’Etape du Tour.

Evian to Lausanne – 112km Cycling Through France and Switzerland

The 110km route from Evian-les-Bains in France, home of the eponymous mineral water, takes cyclists through both France and Switzerland and is a beautiful way to discover the region.

Most people start in Lausanne and catch the ferry across Lac Léman to Evian. After a stunning ferry ride across Lac Léman with views of Mont Blanc and the Portes de Soleil ski region cyclists arrive in Evian to set off on the Cyclotour du  Léman.
