There is an unknown and authentic part of the Pyrenees where the roads preserve their genuine charm and the most primitive cycling can be found. The Solitary Pyrenees Route is full of mountain passes that rise through sinuous gorges, between leafy beech and chestnut groves. This is a Pyrenees of green valleys, shepherd’s huts, farmhouses, master cheesemakers and small villages full of life.
This cyclo-touring journey through the Solitary Pyrenees is a proposal of Biking Through Spain, in collaboration with a Pair of Wheels. We propose an unpublished journey through the Navarrese Pyrenees and French Basque Country. The route combines ascents to memorable and uncrowded mountain passes, combined with the opportunity to experience quiet and contemplative cycling. Traveling without haste, we will overcome each of the stages, enjoying an itinerary that recovers the true essence of the Pyrenean adventure.
The cycling tour through the Solitary Pyrenees combines the epic of the most genuine cycling with the experience of a true journey, which becomes a real challenge. There will be comfortable and continuous assistance, and we count with the support of an experienced cyclist like Sergi Fernandez Tolosa, who will serve the group to achieve its goal.
We will sleep in comfortable hotels and hostels with twin rooms with a bathroom included in each room. Breakfast and dinner is included, as well as mid-stage picnics during the bicycle stages. Each day, at the end of the day, we will communicate the refreshment points and plan the next day’s stage.
There will be a vehicle available to assist the participants in the points of confluence between bicycle routes and the van’s route. Every day we can consult these points to always know where we will have the vehicle nearby. In addition, the group and the van will be geolocated at all times via mobile phones.
The most suitable bicycle for this route is a cycle-touring bicycle, with tyre covers prepared to face the short mountain paths and sections with rough or deteriorated asphalt. Even so, most of the route will be on quiet roads with good asphalt. Road bikes work perfectly as long as they have such tires. Mountain bikes may cause slower speeds to be reached, but they will be fine on the more rugged terrains. Rest assured that the rhythm that Sergio will set on the route will allow everyone to easily follow the stages.
The map shown partially reflects the route. There are sections of tracks that do not yet appear on the map and that will be displayed further on. The stages will surely not suffer variations beyond, and the final accommodation will be in the village of destination or within its vicinity
