The rides

The rides have been developed and tested by Sofie, creator of Bike Tours Vosges, and her local friends. fhsdiufhisf Massif des Vosges is a mid-range mountain chain, which is great because the mountains remain accessible. But as it is a mountain range, roads are sometimes limited to certain passes. The rides avoid main roads as much as possible. But some stretches on busier roads are unavoidable.

The rides called “direct” are the easiest connection between two stopovers, ideal for bad weather or rest days.

An example

An example of an easy connection between 2 stopovers : Xonrupt-Longemer and Vagney. This is a road ride of 23 kms and 260m of climbing. The technical difficulty is 2 wheels.
The ride passes very  !! close to a biological reserve. Access is forbidden, so please respect that. But it’s great to know that a very rare protected species of bird is living in that reserve. In French we say the “Grand Tétras”. In English, it’s a wild Capercaillie.
