“If you don’t climb the mountain, you can’t enjoy the view”
Pyrénées …. the mountains for Climbing Connoisseurs!
VéloRoo’s Iconic Climbs Pyrénées Challenge offers you the chance to experience a perfect blend of incredible riding and unique culture of the Haute Pyrénées and Pays Toy, a region rich with iconic TdF climbs and World Heritage listed areas of incredible natural beauty.
- Bucket list Pyrenees climbs!
- Col du Tourmalet, Col d’Aubisque, Col de Soulor, Luz Ardiden
- PLUS the climbs the locals favour!
- June Tour – Montée du Géant festival
- October Tour – Autumn Colours!
- Avoid the peak tourist season!
Our Spring Pyrénées Challenge marks the official opening of the Pyrénées in early June for the summer cycling season .
The “Montée du Géant” festival is a celebration of cycling, endeavour and history, as you take part in the procession that returns Le Géant to his summer home, the summit of the Col du Tourmalet.
Our October Pyrénées Challenge coincides with the beautiful Pyrénéan autumn colours. The spectacular landscape is highlighted with the incredible clarity that the autumn light delivers along with the oranges, reds and yellows of autumn colours.
There is a crispness in the air that makes riding at this time of year bliss!
AND you avoid the busy traffic that comes with the July / August peak summer season.
Quiet roads, except for the sound of cow bells, to let you soak up your picturesque surrounds.
If we are lucky, we may even come across local shepherds moving their flock from the high pastures to the warmer valleys below!
You can be sure that after your VéloRoo Pyrénées Challenge, you will have stories and memories of a lifetime.
