Our Pyrenees Mountain Challenge has been one of our most popular road cycling tours ever since we started offering it nearly 10 years ago.
We’ve updated it for 2014 and in this new incarnation the tour is bigger and even better than it was before. In response to popular demand, our carefully researched route now takes in the entire mountain range, starting on the shores of the Atlantic and finishing on the warm sands of the Mediterranean, presenting a unique opportunity to combine a coast to coast ride with a genuine mountain experience.
This is a challenging trip through one of Europe’s most impressive mountain ranges and our revised route now spans the entire the distance between the Bay of Biscay on the Atlantic Coast and the Mediterranean Sea taking in some of the most impressive mountain scenery you could wish for as we make our way along the beautiful natural border between France and Spain.
The home of both Basques and Catalans; throughout history the region has seen its share of conflict. Thankfully today however the struggle for supremacy in the mountains is mainly fought out on two wheels and whether it be professional riders battling for points or Tour de France stage wins or amateur riders battling against the mountains themselves, the challenges presented by the Pyrenees are just as dramatic and just as exciting.
If you’ve always wondered what it feels like to climb the likes of the Tourmalet, Aubisque, Aspin and Peyresourde then this is your chance. These mountains are legendary in the cycling world.
The route starts in St Jean de Luz on the Basque coast and covers nearly 800kms and 17,000m of climbing before arriving in Collioure on the Mediterranean coast, where we'll celebrate with a paddle in the sea and a bottle of something sparkly.
Designed with climbers in mind this tour will appeal to the more serious amateur rider who enjoys pushing themselves just that little bit further.
