After you clear Gex- great raod- lots of nice corners- great views with climbing cliffs all over if your into that type of high risk activity. This road can carry a bit of traffic, but you can usually find a long enough straights to make passes, at least if you are motivated. Good road surface.

Beware of the camera if you carry on past le Cure to La Rousses into France!

Great little road in the Jura. South ramp has good surface and the road is highly varied. The road up to St George has flowing corners, giving way to a few hairpins after- then it opens up into some nice flowing corners and some high valley straits up to the top of the Col. Once over the summit, the road narrows a bit, the corners tighten and the surface goes downhill, but still enjoyable. Take care on casino online the north ramp as it can be wet and sandy, or even have some snow in the spring, as it does not get the sun.

Once you reach the bottom of the ramp, take a right and follow the road to Le Pont- This is strait so you can use it to wind down before a coffee stop in Le Pont.

Great pass over the over to the heart of the Jura form the Lac Leman valley. This road is a joy to ride in either direction. The South ramp has great surface and starts out with open and flowing corners. Once you hit tree line, things tighten up a bit but the corners still flow all the way up to the top and fun continues all the way down to Lac de Joux

This road carries a fair bit of traffic and it is one of the main routes to the Vallee de Joux. Once you hit Le Pont, you can find fantastic roads going most every direction.

Nice day ride from Geneva taking in La Faucille, Saint-Cergue
Saint-George, col de Marchairuz and ending up for a drink in Le Pont.

Then back over the Col du Mollendruz.

Watch for police at the run up an down to all the Jura passes.
