Hop off the bus, remove your bike from the stand and you�re all set to go. Well, almost: before you begin your downhill route from Mont Sujet, you still have to overcome a short uphill stretch. As of then, however, it�s all downhill. The panorama surrounding Mont Sujet is truly magnificent. Afterwards, the bumpy Jura pastures make the next section of the tour a sheer bone-shaker. The single trails will set your adrenalin levels racing, but you always have the opportunity to catch your breath because the downhill part is divided up into several stages.
This leg of the journey covers 64 kilometers from Laupen on secret paths over the wild Längenberg Mountain up to Thun.
The nostalgic expedition starts in Laupen near the train station and leads on the former railroad route up to the turning point near the Gümmenen Train Station.
Laupen Castle towers high above the medieval town of the same name at the confluence of the rivers Sense and Sarine. The splendid fortress is the emblem of the region, and a protected monument of national importance.
