Day 1 Welcome to the Jura & Three Lakes region. The tour starts exactly on the Röschtigraben, the German-French language border, and leads first with the funiculaire to Magglingen. Passing the sports facilities of the national sports center of Switzerland and the "end of the world" you roll to Nods and, in some hairpin bends up to the highest peak of the Bernese Jura, the Chasseral 1606 m. Hardly any other place offers a more beautiful view of the Alps: from far in the east to the Jungfrau region and Mont Blanc you marvel at the panorama high above Lake Biel. Then the route leads along magnificent e-bike roads towards La Chaux-de-Fonds. The town with its chessboard-like layout is not only the capital of Swiss watches, but also the birthplace of Louis Chevrolet and Le Corbusier. (E-bike time: 4 h, distance: 47 km, ascent/descent: 1350/1220 meters)
Day 2 Spending a day in La Chaux-de-Fonds and the region is 100% worth it. Get to know the charm of the city, visit the Chevrolet monument and learn more about the history of watches on a tour of the International Watch Museum. Then, a trip to Brenets will take you to the lake of the same name. Enjoy a boat ride through the canyon-like landscape before you reach the impressive Saut du Doubs. Here the water falls thunderously over a 30 meter high rock step. An impressive view! (E-bike time: 3 h, distance: 34 km, ascent/descent: 880/870 meters)
Day 3 Now you leave the watch metropolis La Chaux-de-Fonds and ride on the Jura Bike Route through the wide and impressive landscape of the Vallée des Ponts towards the west. An exciting natural phenomenon and mystery at the same time you discover on the way, where the meandering river "le Grand Bied" suddenly disappears. The solution will follow! A racy ride downhill leads to the Val de Travers, where you will learn more about the history and secrets of the "Green Fairy" during an aperitif. Then the bubbling spring in Noiraigue solves the above riddle before you enjoy an impressive drive through the Areuse Gorge to finish. (E-bike time: approx. 4 h, distance: 55 km, ascent/descent: 800/1310 meters)
