Beautiful passes In the Vosges Mountains

Road Cycling Collection by komoot

Here, on the Ballon d'Alsace, you're literally riding the trails of history: As the first mountain pass ever biked during the Tour de France, on July 11, 1905, you'll get close to both the history of the world's most prestigious cycling competition, as well as the more tragic reminders of World War One. All of the mountain passes you'll ride here are also almost completely car-free, taking you through a diverse landscape comprising deciduous forests, luscious green meadows, and French villages. And once you have completed the rides, you can enjoy a rather more luxurious ride along the lower route of the Vins d’Alsace — and let your tongue be tickled by Pinot Blanc and friends.
