Road Cycling Weeks
Road Cycling Weeks
Tackle the different 'Classic Cols' with our Guided Cycling week.
In Partnership with Pyrenees Cycling, we offer our 'Classic Cols Guided Cycling Week'. Based here at The Free Range Chalet, you will tackle famous routes for 5 days out of 7 with our English speaking guide.
Helping you with the hard work however we can.
Here at The Free Range Chalet we'll offer you plenty of encouragement, and Pyrenees Cycling will give you all the advice you need in your quest to conquer the high Cols. It's important not to punish yourself any more than the gradients and kilometres will punish you.
The holiday includes:
An English speaking guide to give you all the help and encouragement along the way (we always make sure you are on the right road and don’t get lost!).
Half board accommodation - including breakfast and a fantastic home-cooked 3 course meal every night (except Wednesday which is our night off).
Return transfers for you and your bike from Lourdes/Tarbes or Toulouse airports (1 hr 30 min transfer from both).
Cereal bars and energy drinks to keep you fuelled.
Secure storage for your bikes – we know how much you love them!
Vehicle and driver back up.
The holiday does not include:
Food on the road.
Transfers to and from any other towns or cities unless previously agreed, extra charges may apply.
Wine, beer or any hotel extras e.g. washing of kit. These may be added to your room bill, and need to be paid for on check out from the Hotel.
If you'd prefer to leave your trusty steed tucked up at home taking a rest, or just try something different, then we are partnered with a number of Hire Shops where we can fit you with a perfect replacement.
