Have an insatiable hunger for cycling? Explore the maps — and menus — of Alsace. From delicious drinks and cheeses to half-timbered houses, your route will feature all manner of Alsatian delights. What better appetizer than Colmar, the wine capital of Alsace! Rieslings, Pinots Gris and Gewürztraminers are sure to get your taste buds buzzing. Feel like a snack?

From the Kreuzweg and Charbonnière passes, savour the view of the Black Forest — without all the chocolate shavings and cream that cover its namesake… Alsace: you’re sure to want seconds!
