32,79 km cycling route from Montbéliard to Saint-Hyppolite

Before starting out on your Grande Traversée du Jura à Vélo adventure, take the time to admire the historic City of the Princes of Wurtemberg for a few hours – Montbéliard is well worth exploring. As well as its long history, this town was the cradle of Peugeot automobiles. Visit the Musée de l'Aventure Peugeot, along with the car factory, stepping back in industrial time, discovering how the company started by making some of the earliest bicycles! Having tasted the renowned Montbéliard sausage, served with potatoes and cancoillotte (a runny cheese), you should now have the energy to tackle the route through the Jura Mountains!

Grande Traversée du Jura by bike from Montbéliard to Saint-Hyppolite

This first stage of the GTJ à Vélo involves slopes along much of the way. From the departure point, and crossing through Montbéliard, there is a cycle path for you to follow. Then you continue along a road with little motorized traffic. A significant climb lasting 3.5km takes you from Pierrefontaine les Blamont up to Fort du Lomont, but after that, it’s mainly downhill to the end of the stage.
