Jura Route (route No. 7)
"We are all familiar with the pilgrim monks carrying their staffs and scallop shells who take the legendary road to Santiago de Compostela. We know the pilgrim bikers too, with their Harley-Davidsons and black helmets, who take the legendary Route 66. But perhaps less well-known is the pilgrim cyclist, with his bike and bell, who takes the legendary Route 7 through the cycling paradise known very simply as the Jurassic Arch."
