PlanetTraveling by bike, you are no longer an observer — you are an active participant in the local environment and culture.
Traveling on small and quiet roads, this tour will allow you to experience part of the rural countryside and ride through famous and not-so-famous small and authentic villages that all so well illustrate the multi-faceted Alsatian character.
During this trip you may get the best out of fine local produce – tasting Riesling’s exceptional wines and directly buying authentic Alsatian food to local producers like flammekueche, choucroute, pain d'epices (gingerbread), and more.
