The towering Pyrenees in South-Western France lie between the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. This mountainous area, in which the wild Parc National des Pyrénées is located, is claimed to be a paradise for hikers, fishermen and skiers. And although the Pyrenees are quit green in France and the weather in this area is cool, it is also a paradise for motorbikers. Of course you have to be a bit lucky with the weather, but the scenery is beautiful.

With ride 1 of the French Pyrenees we are taking you East of Lourdes to 2 of the most well known mountain passes of the French Pyrenees. De Col de d’Aspin and the Col du Tourmalet. So the ride is filled with real nice, but serious mountain roads, with serious hairpins and beautiful views. A motorcycle ride at its best!
|Distance:||200 km (130 miles)|
With ride 2 we are going the other way into the part of the Pyrenees West of Lourdes. The ride will bring you to 3 very famous mountain passes: Col de Soulor – Col d’Aubisque – Col de Marie-Blanque. All VERY nice to ride and we even liked this ride more than we already liked ride 1!
