The Pyrenees, Europe’s second largest mountain range, provide the background for a fantastic mountain biking adventure. Until recently, this riding heaven has been kept as a secret by local riders. Finding it increasingly difficult to keep their precious secret they have decided to share what they (and us) believe to be the best riding in Europe. The results are awesome, with hundreds of kilometres of singletrack snaking it’s way through some of Europe’s most stunning scenery.
We will be exploring the hills and mountains that form a seemingly impenetrable natural border between France and Spain. The central area on the southern Spanish side is taken largely by the Province of Aragon, a proud region containing the Pyrenees’ highest peaks and most spectacular scenery. Immense valleys gouge their way south to drain into the Rio Ebro creating a first class destination for ‘All Mountain’ and ‘Enduro’ style riding.
What we’ve come up with we feel is a must ride itinerary to any singletrack junky. The trips essence is 100% fun, however a good level of fitness is essential! Mountain biking the Pyrenees on this trip will take you through 3 distinct regions to ride over the most unbelievable trails. The formula will be Enduro style riding with big steady ascents to give access to the most exhilarating flowing trials to bring you back into the deep valleys. Uplifts will be given on a daily basis to help the rider get the most out of their days on the bike. There are so many trails that we will build the trip around the groups needs and wishes, adjusting the route as the week evolves.
These will be big wilderness days out, but with expert guiding and tuition should you need talking through any section that has got the better of you. Three great village hotels have been chosen, with lively bars and restaurants close by to help you unwind and re-fuel after some amazing fun in the saddle.
