This amazing bike rental shop has espresso and treats to kickstart your day and beer/wine to reward yourself after 40km (25 miles) around Lake Annecy. Spectacular. The owner is wonderful and welcoming.

What an amazing atmosphere to ride and relax. The expertise of the crew is amazing. Knowing what we want to eat, drink before and after a long ride is a real plus to the experience!
