The final stage of the Grande Traversée du Jura à Vélo allows you to enjoy cycling downhill in the main. There are natural curiosities to see along the way, notably the Adoue Fountain and the Thurignin Gorges, where water has polished the rocks and then races around in the natural passageways it’s created. This stage also offers you the chance to tackle an unforgettable alternative route, the climb up the legendary Grand Colombier! This magical mountain makes cyclists tremble through fear and excitement!

Grande Traversée du Jura by bike from Le-Grand-Abergement to Culoz
On this final stage, it’s downhill practically all whole way on the first 19 kilometres, but the final stretch is on the flat, along a road that’s busy at rush hour.
