By scooter in the canton of Jura
"It was an unusually rainy August afternoon and we had arranged to meet our colleagues at Saignelégier station for a scooter ride. By the time we got our hands on our "all-terrain" machines, fortunately fitted with mudguards, the rain had stopped. Until Le Pré-Petitjean, the descent was a little slow and we had to push, changing legs from time to time. The real adventure began once we took on the descent of the Combe Tabeillon. Stony paths, damp patches, wild ponds, a small river and impressive rocks lining the route. We soaked up all the nature we could before reaching Glovelier station. From there, we caught the train back to Saignelégier before continuing what all of our colleagues - from the trainee to our most senior staff - described as one of our best company outings ever."
