From 1994 to 2007 I was lucky to spend my days in the Haute Pyrenees region of France. Here I spent every day riding my bike, giving tours and with the local cycle club which has given me an in depth knowledge of the area. To this day I have not come across a better part of the world for incredibly varied cycling straight from your doorstep. The area offers everything from low level flat rides in the valleys to the west and plains to the north, to a great variety of climbs from low level Cols to some of the most challening Tour de France climbs. The roads here are very low in traffic, working their way through villages that feel as though time has passed them by. This truly is riding in a postcard country.

I will be happy to ride with you and plan your rides. This can be planned in advance of your tour and can be varied during your stay. For example if the weather was turning bad one morning or you were a bit tired from the day before I can plan the ride to suit your needs. Or you want to ramp it up? Let’s go!

One of the great things about centre based tours is you can plan and adjust to exactly what you want to ride. Whether you want to do 40km - 200km rides with various amounts of climbing I can put together some unforgettable routes for you. Just drop me a line to discuss your requirements.

This area offers some amazing climbing with famous and not so famous Col.

Long Weekends

Normally Thursday to Sunday packages, these long weekends can be planed to get the maximum out of your visit with 3 full days of riding. If you can arrange an afternoon flight back on the Sunday I know some amazing rides back to Toulouse and can arrange a vehicle to meet us just outside the city, enabling you to get the most riding out of your tour.

1 & 2 week Tours

This area has so much to offer. You can do a different ride and climb every day - it’s all very flexible.

  • want to ride every day?
  • want some rest days in-between?
  • want to discover other areas close by? We can transport you to the start and finish of the rides.


I have a number of options for your stay:

Chalet accommodation in the Bagners de Luchon area. The Chalet has 5 comfortable twin/double rooms with a large lounge and dinning area. Our host can provide fantastic breakfast and evening meals.

18th Century Farmhouse in the Luchon valley with 5 Bedrooms sleeping up to 12 people with two large lounge areas and a kitchen dinning area. I can offer either Half board or Self-catering from this accommodation.

If these two options don’t suit your needs I know of a number of Hotels from 2-5 star in the region that I can use.
