Clos du Doubs tour (route no. 709)
"Don't let chart of the route put you off! The climb that leads us to Epiquerez is very pleasant and leisurely. We will ride gently along the Doubs from bank to bank. There are plenty of chances for us to stop along the river and enjoy a moment of welcome relaxation. The climb up Le Poye is not a long one but we will always remember it ! From the farm at Le Poye we are able to glide like trout along the river to the medieval town of St-Ursanne, where we won't miss the chance to see the sights."
