Pyrenees Cycling Holidays

139km - 3266m

August can be a hot month here in the Central Pyrenees where the Spanish influence on the weather can make a tough sportive even tougher.

The Barousse-Bales is no exception. With a new route for 2016 reversing the route of previous years, the first challenge facing participants is the epic and tough Port du Bales (HC).  Once over the summit, the relief of the fast descent will be short lived, with Tour favourite the Col de Peyresourde and the short but steep Col de Val Louron-Azet looming.

The final 50 or so kilometres takes riders on a winding, fast past route through the foothills of the Pyrenees before the arrival at Izaourt.

The Barousse Bales is a well supported and well organised Pyrenean cyclosportive features 3 classic Tour de France cols with 3266m of climbing. 


Book early to avoid disappointment.
