It is not a stretch to say that the Haute Pyrenees is one of the World’s greatest bike rides. We start in the Basque region on the shores of the Atlantic. We ride 90 to 160 km per day on famous mountainsides and through lush green pastures in some of the most remote regions of Europe. We end on the sands of the Mediterranean after 5 and a half days on the road. We will ride many of the Tour de France ‘regulars’ such as the Tourmalet, Aubisque, Aspin and the Peyresourde.
We start with a couple of minute ride to the beach for a photo of all of us on our bikes on the Atlantic coast, and we ride coast to coast, repeating once we reach the Mediterranean Sea. 700 km of the best cycle routes in the world! The route detail links are below.
You’ll enjoy some of Europe’s premier cycling roads, stay in charming hotels carefully selected for their rider-friendliness and convenience to the best cycling routes, benefit from superb rider support & daily baggage/equipment transfers.
In essence, we help take the hassle out of riding across the Pyrenees, leaving you to concentrate on the scenery, the camaraderie, the local cuisine and the small matter of propelling yourself up and down the mountains.
