A tour on the Diesse plateau

"We chose this tour for our first mountainbike trip. In Bienne, we take the funicular to Macolin. A short ascent and on to the sports school and Les Prés de Macolin. What an incredible sense of peace and quiet! There is a bit of a breeze which feels very pleasant. We arrive at the Twannberg, where we take a restful break and enjoy the fabulous view over the Lake of Bienne. After the descent - on the bikes - to Lamboing the road goes up to the football fields of Lamboing and then down through cool refreshing forests. A further last ascent awaits us in Orvin, leading us back to Macolin. Who will dare to take the downhill trail all the way to Bienne?"
