Day 7 - Reims to Chalon-en-Champagne

April 30, 2017

Departed Reims along its famous canal and headed south east to the small town of Chalon-en-Champagne a mere 47 km away.  The small mileage was due to the midday start after a leisurely breakfast and walk about a desolate and cold Reims with the wifeys.

The road out of Reims is flat to start but climbs up over a ridge line before heading out along broad open fields to Chalon-en-Champagne. You're in the heart of champagne  country here ....



No lack of these enroute ....



Enjoyed a one-to-one champagne tasting in a lovely, small producer's cellar. She produces 30,000 bottles from 6 ha of vines ....


Cycled past the vines of some famous producers ....



 Passed more wonderful houses that I want to own when I grow up ....


And stopped late afternoon for a sugar hit in Chalon-en-Champagne before finding our accommodation ....


Hill of the day - a climb an hour out of Reims.  From a distance it looked bad so I noted time and distance.  22 mins to climb 3.1 km straight up.
