Bordeaux to Barcelona

15 Days Advanced - Challenging 488 MLSAVG 44 MLS

This trip is designed for all riders with a gentle start through southwest France, then building up to the Pyrenees Mountains before descending into Catalonia and towards bustling Barcelona.

You will see, and stay at, the amazing hilltop monastery at Montserrat. Along the route, the scenery and terrain includes vast forests, luscious vineyards, rolling countryside, pretty villages, rocky landscapes and of course majestic mountains and climbs.

The next day is a Rest Day in the busy little spa town of Bagneres-de-Luchon, nestled in the hills beneath the popular ski resort of Superbagneres.

From Luchon the route takes you over the wooded Col de Portillon and into Spain, then over the mighty Port de la Bonaigua. At 2072 metres above sea level this is the highest point on the trip, and from here there is a 25 mile descent down to Sort. The route then continues through a fascinating rocky landscape, crossing a couple of minor cols as you gradually descend out of the mountains.

The final big climb of the trip takes you into the Sierra de Montserrat, a distinct rocky outcrop on the edge of the Pyrenees that rises dramatically from the surrounding plain. At the top of the mountain is an ancient monastery, and we spend the night in the hotel here.

From Montserrat the final ride takes you out of the hills and into the bustling city of Barcelona. You have a full day free to explore this fascinating city before returning to the UK.

We will be staying at small family-run hotels (larger establishments in the major cities of Bordeaux and Barcelona, and at the monastery at Montserrat).
