Instead of the usual 2 weeks in the alps this August, we thought we'd give the Pyrenees a go.
We live in London, so will be doing a Dover/Calais ferry and driving down with a tent and lots of bikes.
'All Mountain' and long day rides are what we are after - some uplift to extend the amount of down we get would be nice, but we would generally prefer natural terrain and we're not afraid of riding up. The occasional bit of DH will be good for me, but most of the people I'm going with are on the tame side (blues/reds rather than blacks).
Does any have any recommendations for must do routes/resorts or good places to stay?
We are only at the preliminary planning stage, so any advice welcome.
