Bike rides are a sporty way to explore the Alsace countryside with family or friends, so put on your helmet and start pedalling !
Alsace is the only region of France crossed by 3 Eurovelo routes, the network of European cycle routes. Coming from Germany, EuroVelo 5 (Via Romea) follows the cycle routes along the Saar and then the Marne-to-Rhine canals to Strasbourg, the Bruche valley and then the cycle trail across Alsace vineyards. Arriving from Switzerland, EuroVelo 15 (the Rhine cycle route) runs parallel to Huningue canal, cuts through Hardt forest, and then follows the northern branch of the Rhine-Rhône canal to Lauterbourg where it passes into Germany. Leaving Franche-Comté, EuroVelo 6 (Atlantik-Black Sea) reaches Mulhouse by the cycle route along the southern branch of the Rhine-Rhône canal before heading off south to Switzerland.
