Holiday Information

The Pyrenees, Europe’s second largest mountain range, provide the background for this fantastic road cycling adventure. This exciting trailblazing trip is varied, challenging and multifaceted as we venture onto roads rarely travelled by cyclists. From the crashing Atlantic Ocean to the calm azure of the Mediterranean our journey takes us through the whole of the Spanish ‘Pireneos’ and into four fiercely proud regions. Along the way we’ll take in many important historical Spanish 'puertos' (cols) not to mention a couple of French ones. It’s a rich and beautiful region guaranteed to feast your eyes and tantalise your taste buds.
 
We begin our journey in the Basque region where the all Basque former professional cycling team Euskatel Euskadi was conceived and funded by its team members. For many years the Basque country has been synonymous with some of the biggest names in Spanish cycling with the likes of Miguel Indurain and Joseba Beloki honing their skills in the hills and deep Atlantic valleys
 
As we traverse the sierra we’ll venture into the region of Aragon in the high Pyrenees, a land of giant passes and enormous mountains with towering peaks. Aragon is the setting of the Gran Fondo Quebrantahuesos, the most important and challenging cyclosportive event in Spain.
As we reach the end of our journey we enter into the stunningly beautiful and craggy sierras of Catalunya whose meandering roads eventually deliver us to the shores of the Costa Brava.
