Jura Route Day 7: Basel -> Saint Hippolyte

Back on the saddle and into France …back into Switzerland …and again into France ! We’ll be crossing borders quite a bit today !

You will gain elevation in three strong pushes: 200 meters, 200 meters and 400 meters. Our only town of note is Porrentruy (Switzerland), a beautiful and well-preserved city surrounded by forests and pasturelands. Perhaps take some lunch and a bit of time to admire the gothic, baroque and neoclassical styles of the old town center.

We’re then back into France and the terrain changes to long deep valleys and thick forests.

Our overnight stop is Saint Hippolyte, a town that may remind you of Saint Ursanne. This medieval village at the bottom of a valley on the Doubs river has lots of interesting architecture to admire. You may notice that the cars are a bit older, the houses are a bit run down and the people are perhaps a bit slower…things you probably wouldn’t have noticed if you hadn’t been cycling in Switzerland all week !

Of course, cycling in France has its advantages, and food and wine are at the top of the list ! Fortunately, our hotel in Saint Hippolyte has large quantities of both.
