Grande Traversée du Jura by bike from Goumois to Villers-Le-Lac
The exit from Goumois is difficult, involving an 8km climb, but there are some beautiful viewpoints along the way. It is possible to bypass some of this difficult portion from Trévillers (see stage 2) up to Charquemont. There then follow undulating stretches, largely on roads with very little traffic.
There’s a Bosch electric bike charging station cyclists can easily access at Charquemont (Combe Saint-Pierre).
- Goumois: the splendid view from the corniche road descending to the village. Goumois, on the frontier between France and Switzerland, has the distinction of being part French, part Swiss, the Doubs serving as the border. The stretch of river here is renowned for fly fishing.
