Mountain biking in the Pyrenees is an amazing experience for those that fancy travelling on mountain paths and singletracks. This bike trip is developed on gravel roads, lonely trails and singletracks and some few paved roads. Like in a masterpiece they link beautiful valleys and Romanic and medieval towns of the Catalonian and French Pyrenees. The tour starts in “Vielha”, Catalonia, the door entrance to the famous “Val d’Aran”. Here we find lots of ski resorts nearby. The tour finishes in Toulouse, capital of Languedoc Province, aone of the most important cities in the south of France.
Along the ride we’ll have all sorts of possible weather. This is absolutely normal in the Pyrenees between springtime and summer. The tour combines nice and calm rides with very demanding up hills and down hills.
It’s remarkable that most of the singletracks and trails are extremely lonely. Really off the beaten track and that help us breathing nature every time. The beauty of this trip is not only given by the magnificent mountainous views and pristine fir trees and pine forests, but also for the Romanic towns and churches and old constructions that make us dream about centuries ago.
The cuisine of the Pyrenees is inspiring: Mediterranean flavours that really worth to be tasted plus the will of the locals to make us feel comfortably “at home” are a recipe not to resist. This is an unforgettable experience; we look forward to ride together in the next upcoming tour!
