There is a club holiday to the Pyrenees cycling from Sunday 10th September for 6 days - it will be a travel day either side of that.
We already have 6 confirmed early takers, with a hotel booked for them. There may be additional hotel spaces available, or there is plenty of other accommodation available in the base town, Argeles Gazost.
Argeles Gazost is close to Lourdes in the foothills of the Pyrenees. There are a number of cols and circuits on routes directly from the hotel, plan on riding 60 – 100km per day with some serious climbing. Tourmalet, Luz Ardiden, Hautacam, Aubisque. Easier days are possible by riding away from the Pyrenees, but then, why….?
