Stage 3: In the heart of the Haut-Jura natural park

Today it’s already time for our last meeting of the series “On the roads of the Forest’Cime”! As a reminder, this series presents you the most beautiful places that the route of our 3-day cycling raid offers. As a reminder, the FORESTCIME will take place on the 24th, 25th and 26th of June 2022 through the Ain and the Jura.

Here are the last 3 tourist spots as well as a focus on the accommodation for the 2 nights during this third and last stage called “In the heart of the Haut-Jura natural park”.  The articles of stage 1 and stage 2 are of course available, do not hesitate to consult them. 


This day begins strongly with a passage through Saint-Claude. The town is not only the capital of the briar pipe: heir to long traditions of craftsmanship, the sub-prefecture of the Jura has also built up a well-deserved reputation in the turning and cutting of diamonds and precious stones


Then you will cycle to the lake of the Abbey situated at 900m of altitude. There is a small beach where you can swim, perhaps some of you will be tempted to take a cool break. It is also called “Lac de Grandvaux” or “Lac de Grande-Rivière”, but it owes its name to the abbey built on its shores in the 12th century.


Finally, on the way back, you will have the opportunity to discover Longchaumois. In addition to being a designated green resort and snow village, the town is home to the headquarters of Julbo, a brand specialising in the design of sun protection for sports. 


As promised in the presentation of stage 2, we tell you about the accommodation for the two nights. The Bellecin accommodation centre will welcome us this year. Located on the banks of Vouglans lake, it is renowned for the quality and diversity of the facilities it offers.

While waiting to welcome you on the most beautiful roads of the Ain and the Jura during our friendly cycling event, do not hesitate to check the technical details of the course! You will find the exact route of the course as well as the corresponding profile. As a reminder, stage 3 is 140km with 2851km of positive altitude difference and 2743
