Description

Nine days of fully supported riding across the high French passes in the Pyrenees!!

Begin in beautiful Girona, Spain (the pro hub for Spanish Pyrnees road cycling) and end in San Sebastian in the Basque Country. All the high passes you've heard of in Le Tour are yours to conquer. Mechanic and SAG support, beautiful charming hotels, charming guides, crepes and espressos are yours to be had. Rent flawless road machines for a mere 30e a day - we deliver and drop off for you.

Climb and descend the famous French cols! In this ride: Tourmalet, Peyresourde, Soulor and Aubisque, Port de Pailhères, Ax-3-Domaines and Marie-Blanque.

We begin in the amazingly beautiful Spanish walled medieval town of Girona and ascend into the French Pyrenees. Crossing through National Parks and stunning villages along the way. We descend into Basque Country and end up in the jaw dropping city of San Sebastian, a paradise for food and wine. Guided riding, espresso stops, more photo ops than you'll have time for and the quality of riding cannot be described in words alone...

Spanish Tapas, French food that is exquisite, a cornucopia of wine, high grade espresso, then, when we're in San Sebastian... all the pinchos you can handle. Sensory Overload. Many of the roads are 8.5% up and down and the rental bikes we get are built for these. Save yourself the hassle of flying with a bike and choose from either a carbon Bianchi with Campy or a German Canyon carbon bike with Ultegra... they're both meticulously maintained and we'll pick them up and drop them off for you. Just send us your basic measurements and they will be adjust to fit you prior to your arrival.

What's included: Nine days of guided riding. Hotels, based on double occupancy, breakfasts each day, mechanical support, SAG support, daily snack stops. What is not included: lunch, dinner, alcohol, hotel in San Sebastian past Saturday night. Hotel in Girona before Thursday night. for Friday departure. Gratuities for guides (10% is customary, if you feel you received excellent service and support).
