THE SOURCE OF THE SAÔNE

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

This 104-kilometer hilly course for 1270 meters of elevation gain crosses the Vôge, a region renowned for its immense forests and numerous rivers. It partly takes up the route of the Ronde des Vosges, a regional cycling race organized for more than 40 years.

Departing from Bains-les-Bains, take the D434 departmental road heading south. This first part with a downward profile allows you to warm up over ten kilometers along the Canal de l'Est and the Coney. When arriving at Fontenoy-le-Château, beware of the cobblestones, hang up your cans! From the port, you climb slightly and cross Le Grand Bois to Gruey-les-Surance, the highest point of this route. You can recover by meandering through the enchanting Ourche valley, hosting the bicycle label at the verbamont campsite to the Droiteval abbey where things will get tough with a passage over 14% which allows you to reach Claudon. You continue for about twenty kilometers to reach, via Monthureux-sur-Saône, Morizécourt and then join Provenchères-les-Darney by the D15 departmental road which winds its way along the old Roman road. You go around Darney to the north, passing in front of the Château de Lichecourt then crossing the Saône at Bonvillet. A false flat rising of ten kilometers will lead you to Vioménil, source of the Saône. Along the Cailloux stream, you end on a small winding road with a downward profile to the Forge de Thunimont where the Grande Fosse hill will rise in front of you, the last difficulty of this loop.

The pro's opinion

“On this route around Bains les Bains, the difficulties are well distributed with possibilities of recovery throughout the 104 kilometers. Slightly hilly, the course takes a few beautiful bumps of about 1 kilometer with percentages of + or - 10%. This is ideal for improving its explosiveness. In each of these bumps try to produce a sustained effort for 30 seconds then recover. Use a 39x25 gear to make sure you pass difficulties with a good pedaling frequency. After having done your training, like me, you will be part of the punchers category! "
