    There is NO easy way to complete a ride like that. You still have to climb over the Alps.

    I should note that the climbs over the alps are not all that difficult, especially if you chose the correct one's. It isn't because of the difficulty of the climbs so much as they go on forever. So while there is no "easy" route, there are several routes that are not all that difficult. But the local bike shops in the area would be far more knowledgeable about the best one for you.
