PYRENEES CROSSING tour

A unique opportunity to join us on this amazing tour where you will be able to ride across the Pyrenees twice, following two iconic, but completely different routes.  The tour will run over two consecutive weeks so you could join us for one crossing (a notable feat in itself) or go for both (the mother of all challenges).

Week 1 will start from Argelès-sur-Mer and pass through the French Pyrenees, riding the iconic Tour de France climbs like Col du Tourmalet and Col d’Aubisque, finishing in the Atlantic Ocean.

Week 2 will turn around and follow a different route, featuring a series of stunning cols on the  less well known and quieter roads of the Spanish Pyrenees, ending back in the Mediterranean Sea.
