Jean Pierre Marin FOREST’CIME Organizer 


The official step to step  approach towards the end of the lockdown announced by the President of the French Republic allows us to hope for better days and to announce our desire to organize Forest’Cime 2021.

The organizing committee decided to maintain our event from June 25 to 27, hoping for an improvement in the health situation. Despite this, the organization of the event remains subject to regulations related to the pandemic (catering, accommodation) and could therefore be cancelled for a major cause.

In the event of cancellation for a major cause on our part, we will offer you a postponement at no additional cost to 2022 or a full refund of your registration.

Personal cancellations remain subject to the internal regulations of our event (see RULES 7.3) except in the case of the current regulations governing border crossings for our foreign cycling friends. In a situation where border crossing is forbidden, foreigners will benefit from the same conditions as before: postponement or refund.

All the volunteers and I hope to find you in the best possible conditions for a nice hike on the roads of jura.

Thank you for the confidence you have in our organization and I wish you a happy cycling season.



La FOREST’CIME is a three-day stage cycling tour starting and ending in the town of Oyonnax – Charles-Mathon Stadium – (01100).
– Friday, June 25th 2021 : Oyonnax – Hauteville Lompnes
– Saturday, June 26th 2021 : Hauteville Lompnes – Bellecin Orgelet
– Sunday, June 27th 2021 : Bellecin Orgelet– Oyonnax (SCharles-Mathon Stadium)
The race takes place at a free pace for the participants on the connecting routes between the villages stages without timing and may be assimilated to a cyclotourism-type trial which does not give rise to classification.
However, a part of the course is timed (one climb per day) which allows to perform a mountain performance classification.
With a start at the gate of the PARC NATUREL DU HAUT JURA, La FOREST’CIME owes its name to its exceptional route through the mountains of the AIN and the JURA, with its famous passes dominated by the summit of fir trees.
La FOREST’CIME is the IDEAL TRIAL TO PREPARE YOUR SUMMER GOALS, like the high road of the Alps or the Pyrenees but without time pressure. You will be guided by an organization that has proven itself for the past 29 years with the events of La Forestière VTT et Cyclo, which brings together more than 2500 participants each year.
La FOREST’CIME is a unique formula from 320 € that guarantees you unforgettable mountain trails,  scheduled for three days. Accommodation in quality facilities, meals specific to cycling, gourmet and cycling-specific refreshments, followed by efficient and secure logistics.

La FORESTCIME is a three-day mountain adventure, with connecting routes between the stage villages and timed parts on climbs to the passes.

With more than 450 kilometres and 9,000 metres of elevation, participants will have the opportunity to discover remarkable sites and to compete on ascents worthy of alpine passes.
