Gravel circuit 64 km Franco-Swiss Sundgau
Sporty gravel outing from Ferrette, small capital of character in the Alsatian Jura. Do not hesitate to make a detour to the castle (on foot;-)). This route is a great classic of the sector to which we have added some very nice Gravel passages!
In addition to the classic (gentle) climb of the Blochmont pass, you will survey the heights of the bucolic village of Bendorf but above all the magnificent passage at the foot of Ramelsberg, the summit of the Alsatian Jura which joins the Challpass (and yes we are going through German-speaking Switzerland!). This junction is made from the Swiss village of Petit-Lucelle (Kleinlutzel for friends) by a small winding mountain road decorated with magnificent panoramas of the Swiss Jura. The last kilometers to reach the Challpass are on a beautiful white forest path!
It was a beautiful descent on a wide road to reach Metzerlen and especially the abbey of Mariastein, the second pilgrimage in Switzerland where you can eat (and incidentally visit the abbey and its cave)!
You will then return to the country by a smuggling route and will even be able to discover the castle of Landskron, the best preserved of the castles in the sector. Here again, a magnificent panorama awaits you!
We return briefly to Switzerland before crossing the border again to reach Oltingue and its cycle path to Durmenach where a final Gravel section awaits you to go back up to Ferrette.
In short, a magnificent course that you will not regret despite its 1150 m drop!
