6 days cycling with 100% vehicle support
This unique cycling raid is a must-do route for any road cycling fan. It will take us on a journey over eleven of the most famous Cols in the Pyrenees. We traverse the mighty Pyrenees hugging the Spanish border as we follow a route that was made famous by riders trying to complete the distance in less than 100 hours, but on this trip you will have time to take in the stunning jagged landscape whilst still conquering great climbs like the Col du Tourmalet and the Col d'Aubisque. After taking on these rewarding climbs, the route brings us back down to the Mediterranean Sea for a celebratory swim.
