(According to qlandkartegt, it's 16.9km, 957m up, 115m down; I've
created a gpx file[1] with that track, as well as two possible tracks for
soliat->neuchatel (one safe using a road, one using a trail that should
be nice). I remember reading somewhere that bicycles are not allowed on
the trail very next to Creux du Van (detour3 in the gpx), but that's
worth double-checking on site.

according to openstreetmap data, it should be possible to join with
!mountain bikes too, with some changes to the itinerary.

it's probably easier and faster to cycle directly to neuchatel.

perfect! (+ my bike is colored after the swiss flag, there's no way
someone can try to steal it in .ch, it's probably a criminal offense)

Since the apéro at soliat starts at 1pm, I think that we could leave at
something like 9:45 to be on the safe side?
