Special guest

What a pleasure it was to take part with you in the 3rd edition of the Cyclosportive La Vache qui rit! The different routes were laid out in the heart of the Jura on undulating terrain and peaceful roads. I look forward to seeing you again on 25 and 26 May 2024 for the 4th edition, which I will be sponsoring once again. Happy winter preparations!

Retro 2022

28 & 29th may

Jersey, timing, assistance and food included

A well-organized, secure and fun event for cyclists of all ages and abilities, from beginners to serious athletes. And everyone gets a unique jersey.


All participants will be automatically entered into the event raffle and get a chance to win some major prizes (check back here soon to see the list).

Exhibitors' Village

Brands from the cycle industry will mix with local craftsmen, producers and businesses for a lively village open to all on both days.

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 town of Lons-le-Saunier loves cycling! And the "little queen" does it so well! This was confirmed again this year with the resounding success of the Vache qui rit cyclosportive.

Over a sunny weekend, this national event showcased the most beautiful landscapes in the Lédon region and the Jura, as well as its cultural, architectural and industrial heritage.

And over and above the purely sporting and touristic aspects of such an organisation, the town is proud to be a privileged partner of the Bel Group. Indeed, through the cyclosportive, it is above all the promotion of cycling in all its forms that justifies such strong involvement on the part of the town council.

Once again, I would like to pay tribute to the management of Groupe Bel, its employees and all the volunteers who have worked to make this latest edition of the Cyclosportive a success. The town of Lons-le-Saunier will be back again in 2024 to support cycling!

Jean-Mary POUPAT,

Director of Transversal Activities, Bel Group

Magnificent scenery, new anecdotes between friends, emotions shared with a growing public watching for the appearance of their Laughing Cow accompanying our riders in full effort.
A new page of conviviality, laughter and good humour will once again be written on 25 and 26 May 2024 in Lons le Saunier during the 4th edition of La cyclosportive, which has become an eagerly awaited and much appreciated event for our riders from all the départements, families from the Jura and Lédon areas, service providers, institutions and, of course, all the employees of the Bel group.
Each year we discover exceptional sites, meet new people, forge new friendships and enjoy moments of joy and happiness with family, friends, participants and spectators.
Our iconic Laughing Cow is so proud to share these unforgettable moments and the smiles on the faces of children and adults alike!

Sébastien MEDAN,

CLSO President

After a beautiful anniversary edition in 2021 for the 100th anniversary of The Laughing Cow, lovers of the little queen continue to respond to the invitation of the most famous of cows. CLSO is particularly proud to be able to offer such a large-scale event with the support of one of the world's largest industrial groups.

Everyone was able to find their own challenge on the splendid (but still little-known) roads of the Jura. The varied terrain is ideal for cycling and discovering the region's heritage.

We sincerely hope that our event will quickly establish itself as a major fixture on the French cycling calendar. It will be a major event in the promotion of the region, as well as bringing together local craftsmen and cycle industry brands in the race village.

In 2024, the organisers are planning new routes, a new prize fund and even more exceptional surprises.


Bib numbers will be allocated on a first-registered, first-served basis.  Free jersey for the first 3000 registrants.
