Service

You can’t beat local knowledge when it comes to a cycling holiday in the French Pyrenees. We have lived in the central French Pyrenees for 9 years and over that time have cycled the iconic cols and explored the undulating foothills, building up a comprehensive database of routes to suit all abilities.

On your self-guided cycling holiday here, we share that knowledge with you in the form of route maps and GPS tracks. You let us know what kind of a cycling holiday you need and we tailor make a package to suit you. Whether you want a steady week of riding in the foothills, covering distance rather than bagging the cols, or whether you’d prefer 5 days of back to back col conquering to strengthen those legs for a certain sportive, we make it happen.

The cols in the immediate area include Col de Portet d’Aspet, Col de Menté, Col de Portillon, Superbagnères, Col de Péyresourde and the Port de Balès. A short drive west and you can also tick off the Col d’Aspin and the mighty Tourmalet. Drive 40 mins to the east and you have Col de la Core, Col de Latrappe and Col d’Agnès waiting for you.

If you’d like to tie your holiday in with one of our local sportives then you have got a great selection to choose from. The Casartelli sportive on the second weekend of September with a choice of courses from Saint Girons (132kms/3110m+, 101kms/2374m+, 48kms/900m+), the Lapébie from Luchon on the first weekend of September (157kms/2800m+, 117kms/2300m+, 69kms/1300m+) or the Barousse-Bales on the 1st weekend of August (139kms/3266m+) which takes in the Port de Balès climb, the Col de Péyresourde and also the Col d’Azet… these are just some of the possibilities. Contact us to make arrangements.

If you would prefer vehicle support and a guide for any of your days of cycling then we can arrange that for you at additional cost.
