My wish for our trip to France was not to just haul ourselves over the most famous cols and that's it. I wanted to leave feeling like we had Really FULLY, experienced the magnificence of the Pyrenees. So after some emailing, Jean-Philippe and Yumi, came up with 2 weeks of cycling nirvana, one week was self guided in the Basque region, riding little known but superb mountains, the second week was fully supported concentrating on the Haute Pyrenees.
Each day offered a tailored agenda that filled our brief perfectly. Jean-Philippe and Yumi were the perfect hosts on our supported ride, they are both super passionate about the region, and it really showed in there tireless hospitality and professional service. Back at home I still expect to JP or Yumi offering me a snack on my local ride!
Having a support vehicle was also great when the climbing saw my partner drop back, and I could ride on safe in the knowledge that she would be looked after.
Another great reason for choosing 'Best of the Pyrenees' is that each Hotel is hand picked, and at the end of a hard day in the saddle it was great to know that a nice place and dinner was waiting for us.
I will definitely be returning to ride with them both again.
