The length and breadth of the Pyrénées offer thousands of possible cycling routes, including many already featured in both French and foreign guidebooks, but a truly great route is never JUST a link between two famous climbs. Over the years, I have explored most of the Pyrénées' cycling roads in both France and Spain. I design unique custom cycling tours. Here is a small sample of some of the famous classic routes.
