Re: St Julien en Genevois to Geneva bicycle

On the practicalities of cycling (assuming the job, residency etc is sorted) the ride will be fine, there are cycling paths parallel to some of the main roads or you can also go via the backroads, through vineyards and woodland for a change and depending exactly where you're aiming for.



The only thing is the winter, there will be some mornings with ice on the roads or when it's just bitterly cold. You can dress up etc but might just prefer to get the bus. There's supposed to be a tram extension being built to "Saint Ju" but I've moved away and don't know where things are.
The extention to the St. Julien tram route was scheduled to start building around now but has been delayed several times for various reasons. It will start at Pallettes, go along the Route du Base and then up through Perly, direction Saint Julien. It was originally scheduled to be started by the end of this year but the start date has now been delayed by ~a year. Possibly finished in 2025-7?

Not that many vineyards and woods really left between St. Ju and Onex but taking the back roads is certainly an option.... depending on the start and finish points.

The D bus runs every 12-15 mins from the centre of St. Ju, changing at Bachet will get the OP to both Lancy or Onex if the weather's too grotty to cycle.
