Raid Cycling Tour – Ride Sea to Sea
Riding across the backbone of the Pyrenees that stretches from sea to sea is also known as the Pyrenean Raid. A journey that will take you from the surf crashing wild Atlantic Coast to the turquoise Mediterranean Sea.
A Private Cycling Tour of the Pyrenean Raid
Since the boom in popularity of the Tour de France and Etape du Tour Cyclosportive events, the Haute-Route one-week challenge has become a highly coveted ride. But for those who prefer to swap cheering crowds and roads brimming with bicycles for something more unique - a private cycling adventure tour of the Pyrenees and its Pyrenean Raid delivers sublime sights and a strong sense of accomplishment.
A Personal Approach to the Pyrenees
For over a decade we have been showing cyclists the lesser known roads of the Pyrenees, this is our homeland - these mountains our backyard, and we know each turn and switchback as intimately as we know ourselves. While the Pyrenean Raid has become a popular addition to many tour operators books, it’s the personal approach we take that ensures you see another side when you ride with us.
An Alternative Cycling Adventure
Our Pyrenean Raid tours can take you cruising and climbing over the infamous Tour de France mountain climbs, but we also know a wealth of wonderful secluded roads for alternative cycling adventure tours across one of Europe’s most magnificent mountain ranges.
Cycle France, Spain or a Blend of Both
All our cycle tours of the Pyrenees are fully custom built from scratch; from the roads we take to the rest stops we make, we fully fit each itinerary to suit the dreams and demands of each individual guest. You can choose to tackle the full crossing of the Pyrenean Raid either in France or Spain or even across two countries if you want the best of both worlds.
See More and Experience Deeper
The popular French cycling route features no less than 21 major climbs and can be completed in 7 or 8 days, but as in VeloTopo style – we can tailor the Pyrenees Raid cycling tour so that you can see more, experience deeper, and take your time. Those wishing to combine this feat with another amazing haute-route cycling adventure can dive into the valleys on our ultimate Pyrenees Crossing Tour.
The Hospitality of the Pyrenees Regions
Along the challenging and enchanting way you can expect both epic and peaceful climbs, historic coastal towns and tiny mountain villages, gentle gradients and heart racing descents – all seasoned with lush colors, delicious local cuisine, and charming hotel stays that invite you to experience the famed hospitality of the Pyrenees raid mountain regions.
