Bike day trip to Broc, the chocolate factoru

Hello! Is it possible to bike from Vevey to Broc? I see in google maps that it is only 40 km, but i would like to know if it is mostly flat or if there is a lot of uphill? I am a little concerned because of the high mountains in that area. If so, does anyone recommend a place where we could rent a bike? Thanks!

No real "high mountains" from Vevey to Broc, but Vevey is at 383 m above sea level - Broc at 718 m - highest elevation at 868 m when using the main road (not much traffic thanks to nearby highway). Technically not really a challenge.

Several options for renting bicycles in Switzerland - railway stations for instance (check www.sbb.ch). In addition, bicycles can be transported on trains (additional ticket, some restrictions apply) - might be worth checking for an easy tour avoiding part of the uphill section from Vevey to Châtel-Saint-Denis.

Have fun ....
