It's as if the Jura Mountains were designed for mountain biking. Secret settings, varied terrain for constantly-renewed sensations, and levels of difficulty to suit every rider. An outstanding abundance and quality of waymarked trails upkept by a network of enthusiastic club members. The promise of a memorable experience.
Between the resorts of Métabief and Monts Jura, where the ski lifts are used by mountain bikers in summer, the Hauteville plateau, the 370 kilometres of trails created by the official MTB centre in Bugey, the Grandes Traversées du Jura itineraries and the bike parks (Ludy Park and Bike Park in Upper Jura), there's no shortage of routes. But with the maps, mountain-biking guidebooks and mobile apps available, you don't have to worry about getting lost in the larger-than-life playground of the Jura Mountains.Discover

The Grande Traversée du Jura
Crossing the Jura Mountains from north to south, from the Montbéliard region in Doubs to the Bugey region in Ain, the Grande Traversée du Jura itineraries are the perfect link between the regions of Bourgogne Franche-Comté and Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes. On foot (400km), cross-country skis (175km), snowshoes (135km), mountain bikes (380km), road bikes (360 to 400km depending on variants), or horseback (over 500km), the Grande Traversée du Jura trails invite you on a winter or summer touring adventure in the authentic environment of a mountain wilderness that remains unspoilt, despite its relatively high population.
