Some of the most scenic rural roads are found at the foothill of the Pyrenees. You'll ride rolling hills, cross small villages and rave at great vistas of the entire mountain chain. This alone is a great reason to choose riding to the lower valleys.
This bicycle tour is a great alternative to the high mountain passes! It will appeal to both the least experienced and the most avid cyclists.
We can design easy scenic routes for cyclists hesitant to tackle the higher mountains.
For avid cyclists the great attraction is that we can offer this tour from April until the end of October when the higher mountains are still covered with snow. It makes for a fabulous training for the higher mountains, to prepare for a cyclosportive, race or other big cycling event. Lower mountain passes such as the famous Tour de France climbs of Aspin, Soulor, Marie-Blanque and even Hautacam can also be ridden very early in the season and included in this tour.
We can design your custom itinerary to be as challenging as you wish. It could even be more challenging than riding a couple of the major climbs in a row. These tours are also at least as scenic as the higher mountain cycling tours.
The Pyrenees offers the most amazing network of small no-traffic rural and mountain roads and provides for limitless cycling opportunities. We live here for a good reason; the year around cycling is unmatched.
This tour can be used as training for and combined with any of our other Pyrenees or other mountain cycling tours.
