Grande Traversée du Jura by bike from Villers-Le-Lac to Pontarlier
A stage of the GTJ à Vélo principally along very small roads, then on a cycle track from La Longeville to Pontarlier (16km). Take care crossing the town of Morteau, where you arrive via a retail park and then ride along the high street, without any facilities in place for cyclists. There’s only one slope to climb on this stage – the 3km from Grand Combe Châteleu.
There’s a Bosch electric bike charging station cyclists can easily access at Pontarlier Tourist Office.
