Join us on a serious assault of these spectacular climbs:
And as we conquer these epic climbs you’ll also taking in the beauty of one of the most scenic regions in all of Europe.
The classic climbs in the Pyrenees are legendary for creating cycling heroes. Merely reading the names of these famed climbs typically invokes a sense of awe in cyclists.
And imagine the accomplishment and pride you’ll feel standing atop their summits, not to mention lifelong “bragging rights”.
Three hotel locations throughout the Pyrenees Mountains cycling trip will certainly give you an experience you’ll remember the rest of your life.
An intake of daily calories are especially important on this trip, but we prefer you do it in style.
We begin our trip dining at restaurant in a chateau, where we invite you to taste the finest, French cuisine and sample the best wines of the region. The following evenings, we’ll enjoy local meals of fresh meats and vegetables, as well as some of the best desserts imaginable.
And, this wouldn’t be a trip to the Alps without the famed tartiflette.
By day, we’ll offer snacks, some picnics and plenty of fruit. In the morning, we make sure you have enough fuel for the day, with more American sized breakfast portions.
