Come and join us for the biggest event local to our regular Guesthouse base in Quillan, Eastern Pyrenees. The Figure of Hate is only a few years old but is a fantastic event for Core Cycling to support.
18th – 24th August 2020
Our new Event for 2020 is the Figure of Hate trip.
Arriving in Carcassonne on the Tuesday, you will be picked up at the airport and taken to our base in Quillan. Wednesday will begin with a ride of a couple of the local mountains together before relaxing by the pool and enjoying some food. We will enjoy a cafe stop on our ride in the morning! we will repeat this on Thursday before taking a more relaxed approach to our riding on the Friday and Saturday, tapering for our 118 miles (190km) epic on the Sunday.
Friday will see us take a short ride with a prolonged Cafe stop before heading back to our HQ at La Vue, Quillan and a gentle stroll through Quillan or a swim in the local purpose built lake.
On the Saturday prior to the event we will undertake a short wake up ride to Axat, to sign in for the event. Then in the afternoon we can take to the pool and prep the bikes ready for Sundays Figure of Hate sportive.
On the Sunday of the event, we will ride the short distance to the start to complete the event. Consisting of the Col de Jau, Col de Roque Jalere, Port de Pailheres, and the Col de Pradel before the 30km downhill run back into Axat. This is an event worthy of its name and a brilliant challenge: 190 km with just over 4500m of climbing
After a celebratory evening meal and a good night’s sleep you will return home on the Monday but hopefully after a short steady ride before the drive to the airport, time permitting.
We look forward to welcoming you for a truly intimate & professional Event
A truly Beautiful area to ride you bike in. Take on the monsters of the west Pyrenees and feel the glow of success.
Figure of Hate is an event run by the local club our local host Steve Wood rides for. the event, run by Graham Weeks and his crew, is in only its 4th year but is already gaining in notoriety due the previous participants often coming back over and over again. The event also gives riders an option of two distances so something for most riders to feel like they have completed an epic.
