Next Race: 06/08/2023
Cycle from Biarritz in Northern Spain on the Bay of Biscay through parts of the Pyrenees to Barcelona in Southern Spain on the Balearic Sea, including The Col de Tourmalet a total ride distance of approx. 600km.
This ride is most definitely not about speed this experience is about cycling with friends (or new ones) and enjoying where we are.
Each day we will achieve a new cycling challenge, mostly about enjoying the day in the saddle and heading to the tops of the numerous col’s (Mountains) we find on route, each day we will look for amazing views in the Mountains and Descents that range from 8 – 40 km, it is an experience you will not get every day, and probably one you will never repeat.
The routes are mostly on proper roads, we try to avoid lanes and tracks, so a need to be comfortable in traffic especially riding through the Towns, there is some scope to climb further cols around our destinations however this is at your discretion.
Each day we will cycle a different route always with the goal of following great cycling routes, drinking good coffee, eating cake and being in wonder of our stunning surroundings.
Each evening we will enjoy some stunning cuisine with the odd glass (Bottle) of Red all done in the setting sun and memories to last a lifetime.
An Unforgettable epic experience.
