Activities - Motor cycling

To fully enjoy your motorized hobby, the Vosges Massif is the place to be! Riding your motorbike In the Vosges mountains is always an extraordinary experience. An extensive road network leads through a truly varied landscape: the winding roads from the Route des Crètes with their beautiful, breathtaking views, the series of beautiful bends and challenging hairpins on the Ballons. A constantly changing scenery of mountains. streams, lakes, vast forests and picturesque villages where the cafés invite you to have a break. There is something for every one; whether you come for a fun, relaxed tour with a group of motorcycle mates or for intensive, sporty steering (or ..... perhaps for both). You don’t always have to go high up into the Alpes to get delight from some extreme biking.

It is commonly known that the adjacent region of the Alsace, where roads wind through vineyards and attractive little villages, is also a joy to ride through.  But, are you familiar with the department Doubs, located south of the Ballon d’Alsace? We can whole heartedly recommend a beautiful winding route that takes you along the banks of the river Doubs towards Besançon, through the Gorges de Nouailles and the valley of the Dessoubre river.
