    biking TO Geneva from... ?

    Hi guys!

    Next summer aI am planning to make a bike trip through a small part of Europe.
    My final destination is Geneva, Switzerland.
    But - I live in Ukraine, and I have to choose my start point wisely So, for now I have chosen either Munich (Memmingen airport) or Paris.
    So here I am, surrounded by google maps and google searches, but I can't seem to find the answers...
    So, my first question is: is it really possible to manage one of these routes? )))
    The one that goes from Memmingen seems to be a really mountainous one (which can be hard and interesting), and the one from Paris - through fields (which seems to be too easy and not so interesting).
    So, can someone advise me on this?
    I really need to plan this ASAP, but I cannot find any tracks or routes with the needed destination...

    Thanks for your answers!

    From Memmingen to Geneva the fastest way (if xou dont want to use highways ) is the upper Rhine valley and the upper Rhone valley, this is a mere 500km and should be quite easy with a roadbike (no big climbs).
    If you want to use a mountainbike off road or on biking paths, you would better ask in a german or swiss MTB forum (like mtb-news.de/forum > Reisen/Routen/Reviere) . Posting in English will be ok.

    On viamichelin.com you can look for bicycling routes. Or on openmtbmap.org.
