The Classic Pyrenees

June 3rd 2021
Date
This is an experience that offers you a chance to ride the legendary Pyrenean peaks that have graced the Tour De France for more than a century. This is without a doubt an epic challenge that will test your physical and mental limits, but we believe the reward after a day ascending these giants outweighs the effort.
For us, we believe in the small details of support & attention – from the moment you are collected at the airport, you will be looked after by us with meticulous care throughout the entire journey – from the daily cleaned and serviced bike, the fully equipped support vehicle, freshly laundered kit overnight and the chilled recovery shake handed to you at the end of the ride. Our team consists of an experienced mechanic and knowledgeable guides – the support vehicle is always there for any eventuality, or a welcome haven if you just need that break. We also have local native support for any incidents that require assistance, be that medical or administrative.
It is no surprise that the Pyrenees has such an appeal for cyclists – with some of the most challenging summits and beautiful landscapes to ride among in the world. With our guides, we have designed an itinerary that gives you the very best of the Pyrenees; not just the classic TDF summits but also some of the lesser known hidden gems that give you the complete Pyrenean experience.
Allow us take care of everything – so you can just focus on riding, eating hearty Pyrenean food and sharing this unique experience with your fellow riders.
The recipe is very simple – riding through idyllic mountainous landscapes with like minded friends, quality mid/after ride support & attention, and a generous sampling of the best local food and wine…… what more does anyone need?
