A ride from Montfaucon via the Clos du Doubs.

"A very nice start to the route from Montfaucon to Les Sairains and a very comfortable section to Montfavergier. The path is not technically difficult, but it will still take all our attention because of the steep gradient. Once we arrive on the banks of the Doubs, we will cross the village of Soubey and ride along the banks of the Doubs to Goumois, where we will be able to spend a while on the terrace of the Hôtel du Doubs. The climb on a tarmaced path will make our return journey easier, as the slope is quite steep in parts. From the village of Les Pommerats, we will take a nice little road that will lead us to Les Enfers, a village that lies below Montfaucon."
