Jura Mountains 6 Col Loop – My Biking Problem


Woohoo, my first trip no longer ranging from house in 6 months. I used to be motivated as the day prior to this used to be my first trip of 2021 in shorts, and this night France is sort of for sure going to announce stricter lockdown prerequisites. 🙁

A part of my 2021 Biking Problem used to be to climb 100 cols, so I had to get shifting as I’ve been biking the 5 cols close to me over and over again. 🙂

The loop climbs Col de Richemond (1060m) then visits a number of within sight Cols atop the Plateau de Retord, in any case descending again to the beginning by means of Col de Cuvery (1178m). See backside map with all of the cols categorized. Notice, whilst I might talk over with 6 Cols, I didn’t in reality climb 6 cols. Specifically, Col de Bérentin and Col de Cuvery are higher climbs from their different facet – see right here and right here.

Col de Richemond and Col de Cuvery are in the similar massif, simply north of, the easier recognized and harder Grand Colombier and Col de l. a. Biche – main points.

Nevertheless it’s a really nice loop. Not anything impressive, however scenic and quiet:
