Available at “Allons-y” is a selection of ride cards covering all abilities with clear routes mapped out from which you can choose at your leisure. (Each plastic covered card is designed to fit easily in your cycle jersey)

Alternatively we can organize a more structured training week according to your requirements. Choose a selection from the list of cols / climbs listed below which you fancy cycling and we can plan your week’s routes for you and give full vehicle backup support.

These are just some of the major climbs in the area of the Pyrenees accessible from Thuy. There are many more smaller climbs such as the Col de Palomberies and the which can be worked into a week’s plan or are included in our ride cards selection.
