Route Description
Cosmic Conjunction

Bonjour et Attention you are entering a French Speaking Space!! A nice rolling big hills Orbit through the Swiss Jura around the almighty Chasseral, starting with the warm up in the vineyard from Neuchatel and taking the direction of the Doubs river (French border). The way back will be by Mont Soleil (Sun peak) where you can find some meteorites crash sites if you are curious and then the last push between Corgémont and Orvin to have a perfect landscape on the Alps. It is a wild trip but uphill is worth the effort. There is not a lot of food supply on the way, be careful and be smart! You can always go to a bigger city like La Chaux de fond or St Imier to get food or other supplies. But your ride will be longer. The water from almost fountains in every small towns is drinkable. We did the route as it is a wild galaxy and beautiful constellation, so enjoy it the same way we did. You can easily do it as an overnight trip or try to finish within a day.
