Ride from the Atlantic coast to the Mediterranean climbing over many classic Pyrenean cols
We start in Biarritz, France and finish in Barcelona, Spain having crossed the entire Pyrenees from west to east. Our tour is not a ‘Raid’ or race with all the associated pressures to perform although the ride still presents real challenges which will make its completion a true achievement.
9 nights half-board accommodation is included throughout in exceptional cycle-friendly hotels with a delicious 3 or 4 course meal every evening and a substantial breakfast every morning (always with plenty of carbs).
On the daily rides our support minibuses continually leap-frog the group with chilled water, High 5 energy gels & bars, fresh & dried fruit, Haribos, spare kit etc., and are on hand to assist with mechanical issues should they occur. We manage the group so that everyone can ride at the pace that they are comfortable with, and will regroup regularly, and always at the top of a col.
As with all our tours we are not here to beast you, but rather to encourage you, and share in the challenge and triumph of the conquest. We dine together every evening to celebrate the latest victories and share the stories of the day, and maintain a high staff to guest ratio to ensure you are always well catered for.
