4 Trainingstage bevor das Hochgebirge ruft

Der Jura und insbesondere der Standort Goumois direkt an der Landesgrenze sind ein ideales Trainingsgelände.
Die Topographie und der Strassenbau im Französischen und Schweizer Jura sind sehr unterschiedlich: im französischen Teil können wir ausgedehnte, lange Touren bei moderaten Steigungsprozenten machen und an der Ausdauer arbeiten. Im Schweizer Teil liegen die Steigungen meist über 10% und fordern unsere Kräfte.
Im kleinen Dorf Goumois (83 Einwohner!) herrscht beschauliche Ruhe, einsam liegt das Dorf im Doubs Tal. Gute Bedingungen, um sich von den anstrengenden Touren zu erholen.
4 Touren, die Spuren hinterlassen! Das perfekte Format, um sich den letzten Schliff fürs Hochgebirge zu geben.

2 Resturlaubstage verprassen für 4 Tage Radspass

Der goldene Herbst im Jura - ein Traum! Herrliche Farben im Mischwald, eine tolle Speisekarte und am Abend am Kaminfeuer des Hotel Taillard sitzen.
Oft hat man zu Jahresende noch den ein oder anderen Urlaubstag, den man gerne für einen schönen Rennrad Kurzurlaub verprassen möchte. Aber im Oktober kann es im Jura auch schon zu einem verfrühten Wintereinbruch kommen.
Daher haben wir für dieses Angebot Sonderkonditionen: Eine Woche vor Reiseantritt kann die Reise bei drohendem Wintereinbruch abgesagt werden.
Diese Reise lässt sich bis eine Woche vor Reiseantritt kostenlos stornieren. Es wird keine Anzahlung fällig.

What’s Included in Our Road Cycling Holiday in the Jura Mountains

Training, Relaxation, Nature

The Region

Jura is a relatively unknown mountain region located where France borders the north of Switzerland. Sparsely populated, wild and unspoilt, its rivers originate from deep within the limestone mountain ranges. We have chosen a location on the Doubs river, which for long stretches defines this border between Switzerland and France. In four days, we can only scratch the surface of the endless variety provided by this mysterious river and its intriguing erratic course

4 Guided Tours

From Goumois, we ride 4 varied tours, constantly crossing the French-Swiss border and appreciating the variations in culture and road construction that this provides. The Doubs valley offers us climbs of between 300 and 400 vertical meters. In the direction of France, we reach the isolated high plateaus of the Franche-Comté, whilst the highest mountain pass in the Swiss Jura, the Col de Chasseral, is just a stone’s throw away

From Luxury Hotels to Caravans

The choice is yours! Enjoy pure luxury in our 3-star hotel: Large rooms, open fires, a terrace with spectacular panoramic views, a sauna, billiard table and a breakfast buffet that leaves nothing to be desired. Our other hotel option is the more modest Doubs Hotel on the Swiss side of the border. You can also participate in the road cycling tours but stay in your own accommodation at the local campsite.

French Cuisine

The Taillard hotel is well known in the region for its outstanding cuisine. Great cycling, a well-deserved aperitif on the hotel terrace with views of the Corniche de Goumois, rounded off by a delicious meal are the perfect ingredients for any great holiday.
Regardless of what accommodation option you have chosen, all our guests enjoy superior French cuisine and the great atmosphere at the Taillard Hotel on three evenings.

About me

Italian-loving Swiss entrepreneur, a bike has always been my main means of transport. I discovered an intensive passion for road cycling far too late, but have been making up for lost time ever since. In 2008, I started to develop the holiday division of quaeldich, focusing originally on road cycling holidays in Liguria. We founded Stessaonda, the company behind our Cycling Adventures road cycling holiday brand in 2016.

About me

Born and raised in Bern, for years I had little interest in any form of sporting activity. In 2006, I first started road cycling and after entering the Alpenbrevet 2010 (Bieridee) discovered a passion for mountains that I have never lost. This is not to say, that I have lost my love of downtime, I just call it regeneration these days.

Born in 1946 near Bern. As a sickly child, I first discovered an interest for tennis and then athletics aged 16. My desire to make up for lost time was hampered by a series of injuries until in 1968 doctors recommended I take up cycling, which became an instant passion. I started racing as an amateur for a team from Zurich, though it was some time before I became a good mountain and time trialist.
At 46, I discovered ultra-cycling races and first took part in the Race Across America in 1992. I took part in 1993, 1995 und 1997, but only finished successfully in 1995 and 1997. In 2000, I resigned from my management position and turned my hobby to my profession, with the slight drawback that doing so meant I no longer had a hobby.
I took on the management of a cycling organization in Majorca, which also involved various overseas tours during the course of my 15 year career with them.
After 48 years and over a million cycling kilometers, I was ready to take life slightly more easy, but meeting Lukas on a Swiss round tour in 2016 (organized by qualdich.de) changed all that. I have now rediscovered not only my hobby but also my passion for photography.
