Raid Pyrenean coast to coast ride

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Reaching the first HC category summit in blazing sunshine, followed with a well earnt beer shared with cycling companions.

What did you think of your group leader?

Vincent, very professional, knowledgeable and good company, he is an enthusiastic cyclist so clearly he gets the trip 'vibe' and is a ready source of support and information on the route. Always on hand and contactable by mobile if things should go awry.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Usual stuff, bit of training beforehand will pay benefits on the long climbs, take some gels and bars, keep hydrated, take sun cream and ear plugs, a couple of the hotels are located on main roads, so if you get a room on that side it can be noisy. Check your bike before hand, treat it to a new set of tyres and service.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Highly recommended
