171 km (106 miles), leaving from Reims

From Reims to Laon is only around 30 miles, but passes two mountains and two entirely different ambiences.

On one hand there is the Champagne, region of kings and celebratory sparkle. On the other, rural Aisne still remembers the battles of the two world wars. A journey through cathedral country.
