La Courtine Bike (route no. 723)
"We were looking for a rather easy route to get to know a new part of the Franches Montagnes. We took the train to Le Pré Petitjean and felt as if we had arrived in the wild West! When we got to the pond of Plain de Saigne it seemed as if we had discovered a new country. The ascent to Lajoux is a bit strenuous, but it is the only difficult part of the whole tour. Wherever you look, pastures upon pastures.... On the one hand, we felt a bit disoriented, but then we never got lost – a bike tour exactly how we like it. We ended the day with a very tasty farm-style meal in the restaurant of Le Pré Petitjean!"
