As the stretch between Germany and France, the Alsatians have taken words, wines, customs and myths from those who pass through their region either making war or staking claim on the territory. Alsace is the result of countless years of mixing cultures, people and the indomitable character of the Alsatian locals. It’s also one of our favourite regions of France to explore on two wheels
In Alsace you have no choice but to ride on winding roads through vineyards and historic towns. Start by heading south from Ottrott to Illhaeusern following the Route des Vins, travelling along small winding roads past countless colourful villages hidden amongst the vines. In Andlau, stop and marvel at the imagination of those who carved the church’s 12thC frieze, and in Mittelbergheim soak up the charm of one of France’s most beautiful villages.
The ride to Illhaeusern takes you through the wilderness of the Grand Reid, a haven for wildlife liberally dotted with ancient Gallic burial mounds. Finish your route at Hôtel des Berges and enjoy a meal at the hotel’s famed Michelin three-star restaurant.
Distance: 51 km
Recommended Rider Level: Enthusiast
Best time to ride: May – September
