TRANS PYRENEES ON ROAD BIKE BY THE “ROUTE DES COLS”
09 September 2017

7 stages, 24 mountain cols, 843 km, 17,700 meters of positive slope. They look like interesting figures, isn't it?

The crossing of the Pyrenees by the "Route des Cols" is a classic among the classics road bike routes, and although the numbers are important, there most interesting part is the content and emotions behind each of these figures. We are talking about some of the most mythical mountain cols of the Tour de France, that is, the history of cycling. We are talking about Kilometers of the highest quality asphalt, routes, passage through charming villages, incredible views and maximum environment of bicycle. We are talking about lot of meters of uphill but very well balanced levels in which we find from very progressive and friendly ports, up to 18% deadly ramps. We are talking about stages of pure happiness on the bike, the maximum expression of the road bike, and an unforgettable trip for lovers of this sport.

Read the SPORTVICIOUS magazine for the extensive report they have published on this route made by four friends (Arcadi Romera, David López, Miquel Noguera and myself), totally autonomous, without any organization or assistance and away from the format or mentality of competition (in Spanish language from PAG 96): READ REPORT ON SPORTVICIOUS
