A region to explore

The department of the Jura is spectacular and fascinating. All participants and accompanying persons are highly encouraged to take advantage of this weekend to discover the area's terroir, natural resources and traditional know-how.

Jean-Yves RAVIER,
Maire de Lons le Saunier

The Cyclo is now one of the most important events in the city of Lons-le-Saunier and in the Jura. The marriage between this institution, The Laughing Cow®, and a municipality proud of its industrial heritage, has given birth to a competition of national importance. In the space of two editions, it has become an exceptional showcase for our landscapes, our architectural diversity and our gastronomic wealth.

The city, and through it the Jura, take advantage of the authenticity of the proposed routes to attract cyclists from all over France. Our town participates actively in the development of the cyclosportive practice but also in the promotion of the bicycle travel.

The close collaboration between Lons and Le Bel promises a bright future for the Cyclosportive de La Vache qui rit. I would like to thank the management of the group as well as all those who have been mobilizing for many months to ensure a perfectly mastered organization.

Jean-Mary POUPAT,
Director of Transversal Activities, Bel Group

Over the past two years, the cyclosportive has become an annual event that cannot be ignored by participants, Bel group employees, partners, institutions and the population of the Jura and Lédon.

The anecdotes between friends, the smiles of the children, the joy of the families, the pride of the employees are unforgettable moments of life and conviviality as our emblematic Laughing Cow has always inspired them.

With each edition, we have the chance to discover new treasures nestled in this magnificent department of the Jura, sumptuous landscapes and a growing number of people on the roadside to accompany our runners, to wave to The Laughing Cow® and to share a laugh.

It is with great pleasure that we will all meet again on May 27 and 28, 2023 in Lons-le-Saunier for another weekend of sport, meetings and laughter with our Jura icon!

Sébastien MEDAN,
CLSO President

After a beautiful anniversary edition in 2021 for the 100 years of The Laughing Cow, the lovers of the little queen have once again responded to the invitation of the most famous cow. CLSO is particularly proud to be able to propose an event of such a dimension with the support of one of the largest industrial groups in the world.

Everyone was able to find their challenge on the splendid (but still too little known) Jura roads. A terrain with varied reliefs favourable to the practice of cycling and to the discovery of a heritage.

We sincerely hope that our event will quickly become a major event in the French cycling calendar. A strong event for the promotion of a territory but also federating for the local craftsmen and the brands of the cycle industry gathered on the village of the event.

The organization reserves an endowment and even more exceptional surprises in 2023.
