A looping route starting from Porrentruy (route no. 707)

"Cycling the 10 kilometers from Porrentruy to Chevenez allowed us to get to know an area famous for having been inhabited by dinosaurs in times past. The route through vast rural landscapes is very pleasant, and we were able to learn more about the traces which were found here. Change of scene: from Chevenez, the trail ascends towards Roche d’Or. As we climbed higher and higher we enjoyed the fabulous views over the Ajoie plains and neighboring France. The return trip to Porrentruy was pure pleasure – we hardly needed the pedals any more!"
