I have an idea (not yet crystalised) of doing the Etape and then spending a week heading back up France doing a 'training 'camp'. I'll have a car.
Basically I'll probably do another long ride around the Annecy region and then want to do 2 or 3 more long rides but shifting to a different area each time. I might as well work my way back up France to get a shorter drive back on my final day.
I can find my way around the Alps for routes but can anyone suggest a resource for other areas (or indeed areas to ride given my criteria.)
