    Welcome to the French Pyrenees

    We will meet you at Toulouse Airport at 2 pm, before taking you to your hotel in Lourdes the heart of the French Pyrenees. We take advantage of this first day to adjust your bikes, discuss the stay and enjoy the spa. 

    Col de Soulor, COL d’AUBISQUE, COl de Marie-Blanque 

    Often in the shadow of the Tourmalet, the Col du Soulor (1474 m) and Col d’Aubisque (1709 m) are nevertheless a must in the Pyrenees and in the Tour de France. The steep and uneven slopes lead to a spectacular stretch of road Col du Soulor (1474 m). The Ossau Valley then leads to the short but difficult Col de Marie Blanque (1035 m).

    Col du Tourmalet & Luz-Ardiden

    Col du Tourmalet (16.5km at 7.5% / alt.2115m) is the most used climb in the Tour de France and offers panoramic views all the way up. After a long descent towards, Luz-Ardiden (14.7 km at 6.9% / alt.1720m) and its wonderful switchbacks awaits for us.

    We head to the mysterious but breathtaking Col de la Hourquette d’Ancizan (22.6 km at 4% / alt. 1564m) to watch stage 17 of the Tour de France. Its green and open landscapes are a must see. On our way back stands the famous Col d’Aspin (12km at 6.5% / alt. 1489m).

    No riding today but an exciting program ahead. We leave the Pyrenees this morning. On our way to our hotel facing the beautiful village of Saint-Cirq-Lapopie we stop at Cahors which merits its place on any list of must-see cities.

     

    RIDE TO FIGEAC &  STAGE 20 TOUR DE FRANCE RACE VIEWING 

    Stage 20 of the Tour de France 2022 delivers its verdict this afternoon with a time trial ending in the emblematic village of Rocamadour, both a holy place that has attracted pilgrims since the 12th century and a spectacular natural site perched above gorges.
