Like an immense green velvet blanket, the plain of Crozes Hermitage stretches as far as the eye can see. Wandering in free wheel will perhaps lead you to one of the numerous wine cellars. Halfway you will begin to see the purple grape replaced by the blue water of the rivers Rhône and Isère as you ride along on safe cycling routes.
