From Epernay, ride along the small routes bordered with vineyards, offering nice view points over the Vallée de la Marne, until the famous monk village Dom Pérignon : Hautvillers ! After staring at the 140 wrought iron signboards, scroll along nice wine villages like Fleury la Rivière or Oeuilly before returning to the capital of Champagne.
