STAGE 1: BARCELONA -> CARCASSONNE -> AVIGNON

Explore Barcelona, the city which never sleeps.

Start the tour by descending from the Montseny National Park at 1000m elevation all the way down to the Mediterranean!

Exceptional Catalonian hilltowns as we ride north towards the lower Pyrenees.
Experience the essence of the road less travelled as we cycle tour through Cathar country past Chateau Queribus and Peyrepertuse.

A gastronomic Odyssey as we traverse from Catalonian Spain over the Pyrenees through southern France.
A wine connoisseurs dream as we ride between the vines of some of European's great wine producers.

We created this route for the BBC back in 2009 and have run this tour since 2012 - it is an amazing journey. However, it was time for an update so we have reviewed, re-shaped, revamped and rescouted every section of the journey - routes, restaurants, sites and experience. There are better locations to visit, better roads to ride, better rest day, more optional cycling challenges and lastly, better history - in consultation with the L'Association HANNIBAL BARCA we have adjusted our route - we now ride ever closer to Hannibal's route - our Apennine crossing now reflects this and as ever you will have archaeologist Sam Wood's Hannibalic story telling to accompany your journey.

Ride one or more sections - see the full tour schedule.
