Section 1 of the Orient Express Bike Tour

This section will definitely give you a feeling of Joie de Vivre as we pedal from Paris's Eiffel Tower along the meandering, quiet roads in the French countryside to the German Black Forest region. Experiencing these sites astride a bicycle, you will see and sense Europe in a manner unlike any other tour.The adventure will begin in Paris, the City of Lights. After a brief cycle tour of the city stopping for quick photos at Notre Dame Cathedral, the Eiffel Tower, and the Arc de Triomphe we will head for our first stop in Provins, a walled medieval town designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

From Provins, the road takes us through the rolling French 'Champagne' region, home of the authentic bubbly, and into Alsace, along a route dotted by picturesque towns, including Chaumont and Plombi'res-les-Bains. We will cross the Vosges, where you will have a challenging 10 km climb from 200 to 1200 meters in altitude-the most difficult day of this section and on a route used in year's past on the Tour de France.

After a night in Munster sampling its famous Munster cheese, we cross into Germany across the Rhine River at this borderless border between the two European Union powerhouses. Just 50 km inside Germany we arrive in Freiburg, a vibrant university town, and gateway to the Black Forest.
