Jussey / Port-sur-Saône
This stage of the V50 - Moselle-Saône valley by bike is exclusively along busy roads, plus it is very demanding, so it’s not one to tackle as a family, but it is grandiose. Leaving Jussey, the descent is extremely steep, but the views of the surrounding hills are glorious. At Fouchécourt, take a break at the river port to admire the Saône River and to recharge your batteries before the ascent to Chargey-lès-Port.

The route

This route is exclusively on small county and local roads, and they are used by a fair number of lorries. Expect steep slopes leaving Jussey and climbing to Chargey-lès-Port.

Take care reaching the centre of town at Port-sur-Saône via the Nationale 9 road, as this major road is used by a lot of lorries and there are no special provisions in place for cyclists. However, a secure cycle path is going to be put in place, as well as a bypass.

V50 - Moselle-Saône valley by bike is signposted Charles le Téméraire for the time being, except for the link towards Port-sur-Saône.
