Come and join us in the Pyrenees for a scenic and exciting week of riding, leading up to participation in the La Marmotte Pyrenees Gran Fondo on Sunday 25th August 2019.
Staying for the majority of the week in Quillan, a small town in the Aude region of Southern France at the foot of the stunning Pyrenees mountains, we will undertake a range of rides together before tackling the event itself.
On arrival at Carcassonne airport, you will be collected and taken to our base in Quillan- La Vue Guest House- where we will spend Tuesday settling in and relaxing in the friendly atmosphere. On Wednesday & Thursday we will begin each day with breakfast before setting out on carefully planned rides through the foothills and into the mountains, overseen by a British Cycling/Training Peaks qualified coach and our host guide. On return to the guest house after our rides we will have time to relax by the pool and enjoy a delicious home cooked evening meal.
The Friday prior to the event will be a relaxing recovery day to help our preparation and on the Saturday, we will drive over to the event location: finding time for a short ride to wake up the legs before the big event.
Sunday 25th August: La Marmotte Pyrenees Gran Fondo, 160 km. Starting at Luz Saint-Sauveur the event will take in various peaks of the Pyrenees, include climbing the Col du Tourmalet and Col D’Aspin among others and finishes on the peak of Hautacam. 3 very famous Tour de France mountains. This is a challenge like no other!
Saturday and Sunday nights (24th/25th August) will be spent in hotel accommodation near the event.
We will be travelling back early to Quillan on the Monday morning, before leaving from Carcassonne on the Tuesday night to fly home.
Flights will need to be arranged by participants to and from Carcassone on 20th and 27th August 2019
