Through Samilei Hoarau
These are two events, which each year recall the end of summer in Annecy-le-Vieux in Haute-Savoie. The Ancilevienne cycling race, as well as the town’s village festival, will both take place this Sunday, September 12, 2021.
The 35th edition of Ancilevienne
L’Ancilevienne, these are 46 km route departing from Annecy-le-Vieux, during which the participating pairs must take turns: one on foot, and the other by bike. This year they will be around 1,000 pairs to have registered.
They will leave from Place Gabriel Fauré at 9 a.m., for a return scheduled from 12:30 p.m. and a prize-giving ceremony at the beginning of the afternoon.
And this year again, the profits gained from the race will then be donated to a Charity association.
The village festival
Not far from the arrival of the runners, between the town hall and the Saint-Laurent church, the village festival will also be held. Visitors will be able to find animations for young and old, such as a raffle, games of skill, or even angling games.
Food stands (hot meal, fries, sausages, pancakes, waffles, ice cream) as well as a refreshment bar will also be present to allow visitors to eat on site.
