The final stage of the Panorama Bike route is nothing less than spectacular. It runs from Col de Jaman directly to the shores of Lake Geneva in Montreux. In good weather and with a little luck you might even see a bit of “smoke on the water” from high up.
We quickly leave Les Paccots in the morning to get the 500-meter climb up to Col de Soladier behind us. The modest pass is the starting point for the long downhill ride to Montreux. The deep-blue lake is visible from time to time, but there is no clear view on this section. You pedal through a rough, isolated mountain area, but the vibrant towns of Vevey and Montreux are just a short distance away. And suddenly you have an unobstructed view of Lake Geneva – awesome! Near Caux the entire lake is at your feet and there is no question that the Panorama route lives up to its name. It later ends, quite befittingly, at the lake promenade in Montreux.
What was said about the first stage of the Panorama route far up north on Lake Constance can be said again here on the final stage on Lake Geneva: It is not the abundance of spectacular single trails or the fun downhill runs that make it so attractive. It is the beauty of the countryside, pure and simple.
