Tour characteristic

The Jura-Route with its diverse topographyis aimed at athletic bikers. It has an almost «exotic» character and leads through little known landscapes in the scarcely populated border country of France. Longers and steeper slopes can usually be shortened by train or cable cars where you can transport your bike as well. 

Furthermore, the tour leads over lonely plateaus, some with spectacular views of the Swiss middle land and the high Alps (Freiberge, Balcon du Jura vaudois, Vallée de Joux, Parc naturel régional Jura Vaudois). The tour is almost entirely done on asphalt streets and is therefore perfect for racing bikes. For those who like it a little more leisurely, we recommend an electric bike.
