Alsace, France
1 of 12
Looking for your inner Lance but not quite ready for the Tour de France? No sweat (just yet): Pack up your bicyclette (or rent one there) and head to France's Alsace region, near the Swiss and German borders, for a fitness vacation to remember. With designated bike routes throughout the area, it's a pure delight to pedal beside the beautiful Vosges Mountains, through charming villages, and past the fantastic vineyards that lie along the 106-mile long Route des Vins (Wine Route) where crisp Rieslings and Gewürztraminers are born - after all, you can't go all the way to France and not indulge at least a little, even on a fitness vacation.
