Vélo Gourmand (Gourmet Cycling)

Rouffach, France
Sunday, 24 September

If you enjoy cycling through breathtaking landscape and trying out delicious local foods and wine while at the same time raising money for a good cause, this event is for you! The volunteers at the Ligue contre le Cancer de Rouffach (Rouffach’s League Against Cancer) will once again be organizing this 37-km bicycle ride through the plains and vineyards of Alsace, with 5 wine-paired culinary stops along the way—a pretzel and Crémant at your first stop in Guldolsheim, a vineyard salad and Pinot in Pfaffenheim, a poultry dish with Pinot Gris in Herrlisheim, a plate of assorted cheeses with Gewurztraminer in Pfaffenheim, and desert at the festival hall back in Rouffach (vegetarian menu also available).
Cyclists will be guided by volunteer members of a local cycling club in groups of 30, departing every 20 minutes between 9:30 and 12:30. Participation costs € 37 for adults and € 15 for kids under age 12; if you would like to go as a group, be sure to indicate your group members on your registration. Rouffach can be reached in about 1 hour by train from Basel, or in 45 minutes by car (there is parking near the starting point).
Registrations will be accepted until September 15 at hvoegtlin@hotmail.com or by phone at +33-63-217-8321.
Bring a bike in good condition and consider also bringing a spare innertube in the event of a flat. It is also possible to rent a bike from Alsa Cyclo Tours that will be delivered to you on the spot; to reserve, call +33-36-945-9270. To be as environmentally-friendly as possible, they are asking you to also bring your own cutlery and napkins!
