Circuit Ain by bike n ° 24 - From one Bugey to another - Hikes & walks in Nantua

In contrast to the "black Bugey", covered with thick fir forests and facing severe winters, the southern Bugey, or "green Bugey", opens on more open landscapes, with vast meadows sometimes waterlogged and with softer reliefs. At the southern end, the more generous climate favored the development of a vineyard with multiple grape varieties. At the center of these two extremes, overlooks the plateau of Hauteville-Brénod, with a dry and sunny climate, on which formerly settled important centers of care and resort. Today focused on sport and climate, Hauteville regularly hosts training courses for high-level athletes. You can also see along the route, a collection of sundials highlighting the talent of local artists who have decorated nearly 50 facades! Open your eyes...
