Pedals d´Occitània, a rather different proposal!
As with Pedals of Foc, this is a bicycle course in the mountains of Aran, the present-day heart of Occitania, and the ancient Comminges County, across 225 kilometres, with 6000 metres of accumulated elevation gain.
The vast majority of the crossing passes through forest, with magnificent scenery, with the highest mountains of the Pyrenees in front of us. You will ride along tracks that are suitable for bicycles, where it is highly likely that you will see deer and fallow deer, and you will also come to know one of the most important cultural heritages of Europe.
Vielha, the Barousse Forest, St Bertrand of Comminges … you will ride along tracks made hundreds of years ago, past castles where the former lords lived, through villages where time has barely passed and where traditions have been maintained, generation after generation.
The roadbook will lead you through the trails with no risk of getting lost, you will be able to adapt the crossing to your level, and you will sleep in establishments that you will have previously selected, where you will eat meals ranging from the most typical local dishes to the best and most recognized French cuisine.
If you wish, you can be accompanied by a guide, or you can have your equipment transported for you to the establishment in which you will be sleeping.
When you have finished the crossing, and once you have passed through all the controls, we will give your our exclusive shirt as a reward for having completed the Pedals of Occitania course.
Along the course, people accompanying you, from the oldest to the youngest, will be able to enjoy many activities.
