Come and join us in the Pyrenees for a scenic and exciting time of riding, leading up to participation in the La Marmotte Pyrenees Gran Fondo on Sunday 30th August 2020.
25th – 31st August 2020
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 Ride before travelling to our next destination in Luz-Saint-Sauveur in preparation for the big event. On Saturday we can wake up late, enjoy a climb up one of the mountains missing from the Event for a wake up ride before signing on and enjoying the event expo and then a dip in the pool to relax for an early night.
