Cycling in France - Alsace & Lorraine (Chapter)
This is the Alsace & Lorraine chapter from Lonely Planet's Cycling France guidebook.
Though often spoken of as if they were one, Alsace and Lorraine are linked by little more than a border and a bloody wartime history. Charming Alsace offers pleasant touring through vineyards and gentle, forested mountains; while Lorraine is home to the unmissable battlefields of Verdun.
