Haute Route Pyrenees

Alpine Cadence : Supported rides for cyclists in the Alps
Haute Route Pyrenees
August 30th - September 5th 2020                           BOOK NOW


The Haute Route is, quite simply, the best amateur cycling event that we've come across. Haute Route Pyrenees is a 7 day stage race with rankings/general classifications. An incredible experience and one that gives the rider an unparalleled 'pro' experience. We will be providing a package that includes accommodation, support and entry for Haute Route Pyrenees in 2020. The event starts and finishes in the city of Pau. The 2020 route is mouthwateringly spectacular! 700km and 18,000m of climbing will take in the classics such as Tourmalet, Aubisque and Aspin. It's the lesser known climbs though that will really stick in the memory giving the rider a wonderful, albeit challenging taste of the wild Pyrenees. Full details of the exact route are available on the Haute Route website. 

As an official Haute Route Tour Operator we are able to offer a full package that includes entry to the event. Your entry to the event includes many services provided by the Haute Route organisation. Our accommodation and support package is carefully designed to make sure you get the best possible environment to ride and enjoy this big challenge.


For 2020 we will also be providing accommodation and support for Haute Route Alps from August 22nd - 28th. Why not do the double! Several of our riders decided to double up last year to create an incredible fortnight of challenge, and they all made it! .


Not sure what level of rider you need to be to complete the event?

Drop us a line to discuss this. We will only encourage you to join us if we are confident that your riding level is strong enough. That said, the 'cut off' times in the event are generous and it's an event that's very achievable for most keen road cyclists. We pride ourselves in the fact that all the riders who have joined us for Haute Route in previous editions have all completed the event comfortably within the time limits, a record we intend to continue. Don't forget that as part of our accommodation and support package we offer a free coaching service in the months leading up to the event. This ensures that you are as well prepared as possible for the challenge.
