This is a chance to discover Alsace – one of France's lesser-visited wine regions – at your own pace. You'll start in UNESCO-listed Strasbourg (a super cycling city) where you can check out Notre Dame cathedral, the city's distinctive bridges and the medieval quarter, 'Petite France'. From here follow the Bruche Canal all the way to the vineyards, where you'll join the wine trail through historic villages with half-timbered houses and colourful geraniums. En route take in the towns of Rosheim, Obernai, Barr and Bergheim, and admire the castle of Haut-Koenigsbourg on its rocky outcrop. Head into the hills to visit Ribeauvillé, Riquewihr and Hunawihr before reaching Colmar – France's 'Little Venice'. From here it's a day trip to the beautiful village of Eguisheim. This is a varied bike trip taking in the culture, food and wine of one of France's most individual region. Price includes luggage transfers, accommodation, bike hire, and full route notes and maps. Maximum daily distance: 37km.
