the race in the heart of the Regional Natural Park of Ballons des Vosges
With the Hautes-Vosges at its heart, the Ballons des Vosges Regional Nature Park dives to the Vosges and Haut-Rhin valleys, the Thousand Ponds plateau, the Vosges region and the Alsatian viticultural piedmont.
The cyclosportive of the discoveries
If the start is located in Gunsbach, a charming little village before the valley, it is not a coincidence. It is world famous for being the village of Albert Schweitzer, Nobel Peace Prize in 1952 but also for his cheese house.
Absolutely to discover! Go to meet a cheese, a valley, a culture …
If the Munster Valley offers beautiful peaks and passes for cycling enthusiasts, the Tour de France also regularly follows these routes (Schlucht Pass, Wettstein Pass, Platzerwasel Pass and the Petit-Ballon among others), it remains the paradise of hiking with these 365 km of trails.
Finally, Gaschney resort will surprise you as finish line of the race.
With its magnificent view of the Hohneck Massif and the Munster Valley, the Gaschney and its steep slopes make it the most sporting resort of the Vosges Massif.
