The gorges of France, beaches of the Costa Brava and mountain roads of the Pyrenees - a perfect combination
New tour - using old favourites. This tour uses a combination of two previous tours to provide a 14 day / 13 night tour of some our favourite roads, hotels and locations.
Following an overnight Portsmouth-St.Malo ferry, (see travel choice) we cross France via the Loire Valley and Auvergne region to the Gorges of the National Park des Cevennes. From here we head south to a beach side location on the Costa Brava before heading back along the Spanish side of the Pyrenees to catch a ferry home from Northern Spain.
This is no mad dash to the beach and back, as in total we have 4 x 2 night stops allowing you plenty of free days to ride-out or just relax by the pool.
We ride along the Spanish side of the Pyrenees, which tends to enjoy the better weather and provides great roads and beautiful views. You will be amazed as you pass down deep river valleys, along mountain ridges and through rock gorges, how every corner brings something new - a castle, a reservoir or a rugged mountain peak. We have done this trip many times before and it represents everything good about biking - superb roads, stunning views and biker-friendly locals.
This is an Escorted Tour which means that although the guide will be with you, you are responsible for doing your own navigation. We provide a Tour Pack which will include a full itinerary, suggested route directions, Gpx waypoints and hotel location. This system suits many people, as it allows them to ride at their own pace and style, either alone or in small groups. However, if it is your first time abroad, or you just prefer, you may ride with the guide, who will act as your escort throughout the tour.
