What is 40 km?

It's about 25 miles. Or about 2 hours biking at a steady pace. Or just long enough to travel past:
  • a nuclear research facility - Marcoule

  • a hydro-electric power station
    Hydro Plant Rhone

  • a village surrounded by an 18th century levee - Caderousse

  • a tunnel through a mountain for the TGV bullet train
    TGV tunnel

  • a private chateau - Montfaucon
    Chateau de Montfaucon

  • a strip mine

  • vineyards as far as you can see
