Waytypes of the stage
Grande Traversée du Jura by bike from Pontarlier to Mouthe
You ride through Pontarlier along cycle lanes, in large part. The way out of town is for the most part also on cycle lanes, but do take care, as this stretch has a lot of traffic. Stay vigilant up to Remoray, the route continuing along roads through an area with many tourist attractions. Along over half of this stage, there are no slopes, but from Remoray, the way is more undulating.
There’s a Bosch electric bike charging station cyclists can easily access at Mouthe Tourist Office.
