Saint-Laurent-En-Grandvaux / Morez
Saint Laurent en Grandvaux is in the area known as the Pays des Rouliers, after the 19th-century travelling salesmen who headed off, loaded with local specialities to sell, returning with merchandise brought from beyond for sale. Riding along this stage of the GTJ à Vélo, imagine them on their journey beside the very beautiful Lac de l'Abbaye, up to Morez, which bears witness to the flourishing metal works that grew up here and remain renowned for the manufacturing of high-quality spectacles.
