Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Funny, I was just checking out the area this summer as my wife would like that I find a good job in the area, we've many very good friends in Annecy which is just to the south.

That would be my recommendation, Annecy, it's a bit touristy cute but still a great place to live and raise children; you can commute to Geneva from there, a lot of people do, I would actually probably do so by bike, but people do it by auto as well (a new thouroughfare is going in which will make it an even shorter commute).

Mig, get a job there and then tell 'em to hire me!!!!

44km bike commute ? Impressive.

Depends on which side of the lake you live on, but actually 40km isn't that far if you're a "roady". I average between 400 and 500km/week depending on time of year and training cycle, 25km is pretty much a minimum distance for getting value out of a ride.

There are mountains, too, and SUV-driving Hauts-Savoyards (brrrr)...

It's mostly piste cyclable from a bit south of Seyssel to Geneva, I'm told it's not that pitched.  So not so bad if you're on the northern eastern side of Annecy, northern tip of the lake.

I didn't ride it though, stayed off the bike the whole time in France this summer, so for all that I know, this might have been a marketing ploy from my friend Loran.
