Across the Franches-Montagnes
"Our group of friends from the bike club were looking for a route to explore the Franches Montagnes, and this tour of 35 km was just right. From Saignelégier to Le Boéchet, the road is practically level, ideal to warm up before it gets more demanding... The ascent to the Peuchapatte offers great views, not surprising, given that it seems to be the highest point of the Franches Montagnes. In La Theurre we made a little detour to the Étang de la Gruère, fabulous!"
