Cyclo loop: The Round of the Villages

Valgelon-La Rochette

About us

Here is a short journey that offers a great adventure. Take your bike to follow the Gelon river! In just a few easy pedal strokes, you will discover the charming villages that have settled on these shores where life is so good.

Le Gelon will be your guide throughout the course and you will be able to see him here and there. Its murmur will accompany you in the effort and when you cross it, its spray will bring you a very pleasant freshness. It is sometimes hot under the helmet!
While doing your muscular exercise, don't forget to look up to admire the breathtaking view of the Arclusaz mountain which rises above you at an altitude of more than two thousand meters.
Pedaling from village to village, rolling from one side of the Gelon valley to the other, you will alternate passages between flowery hamlets and rural atmospheres. When you reach the town of Betton-Betonnet, put your bike down to contemplate the abbey of Betton, which was founded in 1133. Positioned astride the Montraillon ridge and the Val Gelon, its location is surprising to say the least. Be careful to keep your balance!
