Mountainbike Holidays Jura Bike Saignelégier - Nyon

Mountainbike: Jura Bike

The charming hills of Jura

The Jura Bike tour likes to show its teeth once in a while when riding from Saignelégier to Nyon. If you thought the Jura hills were easy to conquer, you will soon learn otherwise on the steep climbs. But the sweaty strenuous sections are followed by dazzling views, thrilling trails, charming stage towns and friendly hosts. At the end of the day, you too will show the Jura Bike your teeth. But we are sure it will be a smile.

Tour character

Even though the trails are not as rough as in the Alps, the Jura sometimes offers more challenging passages. Occasional trails and technical passages make this tour interesting even for experienced bikers. Beginners need some endurance and courage. The constant up and down of the Jura hills requires good physical condition. A top route scenically with only a few short connecting sections on tarred roads. This tour can be recommended only to a limited extent with E-MTBs, as rotary gates have to be passed on the way on some days.

Sehr abwechslungsreichen MTB Strecken durch wunderbar schöne Natur. Bei nassem Wetter eventuell alternative Routen benutzen. Wäre eine Empfehlung in den Reiseunterlagen darauf hinzuweisen.

Abwechslungsreiche MTB Strecke im Jura
Lieber A. Vielen Dank für Ihre positive Bewertung. Der Jura wird unter Mountainbiker oft etwas verkannt. Umso mehr freut uns Ihre Rückmeldung.
