Outings with friends, duo getaways, family breaks, the francovélosuisse is the ideal route for everyone, young or old, young or old. 40 kilometers connect Belfort ( France ) to Porrentruy ( Switzerland ): on the route, the urban landscapes of Belfort , Delle and Porrentruy rival those of the more rural Sundgau belfortain and Ajoie.
Over two thirds of the route (Belfort-Buix), the route mainly takes secure greenways ideal for families. The third third (Buix-Porrentruy), on the other hand, uses lanes for some open to traffic where caution is required. In the direction Belfort / Porrentruy, there are no major difficulties to report (route without significant height differences). In the direction Porrentruy / Belfort, upstream from the TGV station, a small difference in level is to be expected.
