Jurrasic classic to the highest peak of the Jura!
The tour can be shortened by use of the funicular from Biel to Magglingen. Turn left, i.e. southwest and ride through the swiss sports institute. Follow the trails uphill to the plain and continue via Lamboing to Nods. A small quiet road clims to the peak of Chasseral.
On top you have some fantastic views on the alps and the lakes between Biel and Fribourg. After the antenna the long singletrail along the Chasseral ridge starts. A little janky at first it becomes easier soon and is well rideable. After a few kilometers of flowy downhill some up&down riding follows until above Orvin. A techy downhill along the "goats back", rocky steps, switchbacks and steep terrain make this the most difficult part of the tour.
The trail back to Biel through the gorge is prohibited for bikes, consequently one last climb has to be conquered. From the Lysserfountain the final trail leads down to Biel. Enjoy a well deserved beer at the lake!
