RIDE THE PYRÉNÉES
The Pyrénées are the ultimate playground for our guests to test themselves on the col’s that provide a brutal challenge for even the strongest cyclists.
At Vélo Le Closier, we have a large library of tried and tested cycling routes for our guests to explore. Whether it’s a big day in the mountains, or an easy recovery ride with a cafe stop, we’ve got it covered. Here is just a small sample of what we have in store for you during your stay:
COL DE VAL LOURON-AZET
Fantastic for testing the legs on day 1 of your Pyrenean experience, the Col de Val Louron-Azet is a good, medium climb with plenty of hairpins, stunning views, an enjoyable lack of cars, and a lot of cows!
Tourmalet and Col d’Aspin
The Col du Tourmalet is undoubtedly the most iconic climb here in the Pyrénées, having appeared more than 80 times in the tour, no climb summarises cycling in the Pyrénées more than the Tourmalet.
LAC DE CAP-DE-LONG
Overlooked by Le Tour due to access, Lac de Cap-de-Long has to be one of the best “dam” hidden gems you can come across in the cycling world.
BIKE WORKSHOPAND STORAGE
Whether you need to change your cassette, fit a new chain, or just clean your bike after all the miles you will add to your Strava during your stay with us, our workshop is kitted out with everything you need. We are also have a number of local bike shops if you need anything we don’t have.
The bike storage can easily hold 15 bikes securely in easily accessible racks, with extra space for bike boxes.
