Elevation Ardennes to Reims bike route

If you are looking for a road less travelled in France, then this could be it. This is a predominantly rural route that links the Ardennes massif to the capital of the Champagne wine-growing region. Expect to follow wonderful ridges and hilly landscape that offer spectacular views. It is a backroads route on shared roads with light traffic.

This is a great route that can be used to link to/from the excellent Trans-Ardennes bike path, which now forms part of the Meuse Valley bike route. It also connects with the Marne Valley bike route.
