Whether you fancy yourself wearing a yellow jersey on the Tour de France and have the pedal-speeds to match, or just enjoy a gentle two-wheeled amble through the countryside, there are routes to suit everyone. Wannabe Wiggins can enjoy the famous ‘EuroVelo 15’ Rhine Route which runs alongside the river Rhine to the north or south, towards Strasbourg. There are also eight cross-border itineraries, as well as the Swiss/ Netherlands route which takes in a total of four European countries. But the countryside is not just for cycling. The breathtaking nature reserve at the Sauer delta is a walkers’ and bird-lovers’ paradise, with no less than 400 different plant species and 182 types of bird.
