The route will be made available to all participants two months before the event as both a GPS track and a detailed roadmap. It is a sophisticated and lovingly designed route covering 400 kilometers and 11,000 meters of altitude which encompasses the greatest highlights in the entire Jura.


The ride starts in the spa town of Baden, at the foot of the last Jura foothills the “Lägern”. After Brugg, the route leads uphill for the first time and crosses the canton of Aargau with steep climbs and descents. The entire route was chosen to be 80% on gravel/gravel roads. A little bit of asphalt, meadow sections and a few single trails complete the route.

After crossing the Salhöhe, the border crossing between Canton Baselland and Canton Solothurn begins. The villages of Langenbruck and Mümliswil represent the last signs of civilization for quite some time. The long ridge of the Grenchnerberg marks the entry into the Bernese Jura. The section through the canton of Neuchâtel is peppered with absolute highlights….which will be revealed at a later date.

High above the Lac de Neuchâtel, the last of a total of six cantons, Vaud, is reached. At 1,100 meters above sea level, Sainte-Croix, one of the last large towns, is reached. The route then runs close to the French border to the picturesque destination of Nyon, on Lac Léman.
