Jura Route 7 : Vallorbe - Nyon

Ride through the Jura between Vallorbe and Nyon on Switzerland's Route 7 by bike

From Vallorbe, a small town with a population of just under 4,000, you'll take the "Route de la Vallée" into the Vallée de Joux. This road, once used by traffic, allows you to pedal in complete peace and quiet to reach Lac de Joux.

As you pass through the Vallée de Joux, you'll enjoy some incredible scenery, including the lake, which you won't be able to take your eyes off.

Finally, you'll reach the Pied du Jura and the Nyon region after one last big effort on the Col du Marchairuz climb.
