Cycling trip along the Rhône river and the village of Chanaz, France

Here is the continuation of this bike ride that we did a few weeks ago,

a ride that took us last time through the Savoyard vineyards and which today leads us along the Rhône, with the Via Rhona, a cycle path that runs along the banks of this big river.

The Rhône is a major river that has its source in Switzerland and enters France via Lake Geneva,
to then flow into the Mediterranean Sea after more than 500 km of travel on our territory.

We are here crossing the Rhone just after the charming village of Lucey, in the direction of Massignieu de Rives

... the landscapes are sumptuous and the magnificent weather enhances the colors of the river in which the sky and the mountains are reflected in a lovely mix of blue and green

And now we arrive to the Lac du Lit du Roi (the Lake of the King's Bed 😁) ...

this body of water is in fact an enlargement of the course of the Rhône, and that forms a reservoir of about 25 hectares

and enjoy the magnificent landscape offered by this wide river and the Grand Colombier mountain in the background.

At this time of our walk we are very close to the village of Chanaz where we will soon take a picnic break ...

We sit here in front of this pretty view of houses on stilts on one side ....

and on the other side we see the village of Chanaz behind the canal ...

It is surrounded by these two pleasant views that we rest and enjoy our sandwiches 😋

What is also pleasant are the original boats that sail on this Savieres canal ...

The village of Chanaz is very picturesque, and in normal times very touristy

... obviously we are no longer in normal times, and it is quite sad to see this place without the life that usually animates it, with its restaurants and stalls that remain closed ... 😐

It was time to hit the road, we continued along the banks of the Rhone for a few more kilometers ....

to then fork and find the direction of Lac du Bourget ...
