EXPLORE BEAUTIFUL CHAMPAGNE COUNTRYSIDE AND TASTINGS BY BIKE WITH GRAPE ESCAPES
Have you ever thought about exploring the beautiful Champagne countryside by bike? Grape Escapes have created some fantastic Champagne and Cycling breaks. Choose accommodation in a 3*, 4* or 5* hotel in the centre of the quaint town of Epernay, and one or two days of relaxed cycling with Epernay Champagne tastings throughout!
As part of the standard Grape Escapes service, bike hire is organised and you’re provided with the addresses of each visit alongside a link to a European cycling route planner, so you can plan your own specific routes. This is a great chance to cycle at your own pace, stopping to take in the beautiful scenery. If you find this idea a little daunting, you can opt to have a cycling guide with you along the journey (for an extra cost).
