The trip

With an average of just over 60 miles of cycling per day, this is a challenge for any keen cyclist. The route takes you from the beautiful port city of Bordeaux through the Pyrenees to the vibrant city of Barcelona on the Mediterranean coast.

The Pyrenees mountains make this challenge like no other, with over 13,000m of climbing in the 7 days there are some leg busting climbs along the way, but with views to more than make up for all of your efforts. Along the way there is a superb variety of scenery and sights including vineyards, famous Tour de France cols, gorges and fabulous rock formations.
