Things to do in France
Bike in Alsace
Looking for the chance to channel your inner Lance? Pack up your bicyclette (or rent one there) and head to France's Alsace region, near the Swiss and German borders. With designated bike routes throughout the area, it's a pure delight to pedal beside the Vosges Mountains, through charming villages, and past the vineyards that lie along the 106-mile long Route des Vins (Wine Route), where crisp Rieslings and Gewurztraminers are born.
