Jura Foothills Route (route No. 50)

"Two is the magic number for this superb route. We pass by two lakes, there are only two gentle climbs to add some spice to our journey, we shall hear two different languages as we make our way, two days is the ideal period to enjoy some sport as well as some tourism - and cycling is much more fun if there are two (or more) of you."


The full route comprises 5 sections between Olten and Geneva.

Section 1: Grenchen - Neuchâtel
Distance: 53 km (33 miles)
Gradient: 150 m

Section 2: Neuchâtel - Yverdon-les-Bains
Distance: 42 km (26 miles)
Gradient: 260 m

Technically: Easy
Physically: Easy

Good to know
