The Big Pyrenees Adventure
12th to 24th May 2024
Part of our Big Adventure series.
The Pyrenees mountain range separates the Iberian Peninsula from the rest of Europe, stretching more than 430km between Spain and France and rising higher than 3,400m in elevation. It's famous for its breathtaking high mountain passes and deep valleys. You will be blown away by its historic and flowing trails that see you ride through natural forests and past ancient geological features. The Pyrenees really does have it all!
Meet us in Portsmouth on the 12th of May 2024 for a 2-night crossing to Bilbao, then take a pleasant route across Spain before hitting the mountains. From here the scenery and trails are breathtaking. Ride the old Smugglers Path. Visit the tiny, independent principality of Andorra, and enjoy the wonderful tapas and trails as we work our way through mountains, forest, and coast.
Arrive back in the UK on the 24th.
Any trail or adventure bike that can travel at 60mph and has a fuel range of 125+ miles would be suitable.
We recommend dual-sport tyres such as Mitas E09s, Anakee Wilds, TKC 80s, or Motoz Tractionators.
Accommodation will be varied and of a good standard. You will be sharing a twin room. Please ask if you want a room for yourself. This is sometimes possible at an additional cost.
Am I a good enough rider?
You will need some off-road experience for this trip, but you don't need to be a Dakar rider either. The trails should be easy to moderate, with some small technical sections. We have a great team who will support you through any sections you might find you are unsure of. There could be long days in the saddle so you need to be generally fit.
If you are unsure, please call Steph before booking on 07378 352731.
What will I need to bring?
We will send a full kit list before the event, but you will need your own dual-sport bike (which must be registered to you), your own kit (including bladder and off-road boots), and a suitable puncture repair kit.
This trip is unsupported so you will need to carry your own luggage and have a European breakdown cover.
