Biking in the Pyrenees
where are you thinkning as it is a longe range, been to
Basque country/Biarittz, good mixture of stuff perhaps we did not find the best trails but now has a company think they will be featured in the singletrack next edition. Good moutains with ability to ride to beach and swim, when we did this trip family was young
Luchon area, can highly recommend AQR and there are some great road climbs as well. Going 2010 for a week, yeah. High mountains lush singletrack good maps and lift if required
Pryenees orientales rode this prior to the company altitude adventures opened up, stunning area and great singletrack.
Prades area fab fab fab, last big moutain with great trails and friendly local club see vtt prades or prades 66 for trails.
We tend to take a map and ride where we think is best so a bit hit and miss, used AQR for guiding tremendous peopel, quality and guiding.
Other areas Ax le therme and Foix.
Personally the pryenees are better than the alps, i just like the vibe more.

Another vote for Altitude Adventure. Fantastic riding with two great people Ian and Ange). It's all inclusive – food and drink and the food is amazing! Can't reccomend highly enough. If you're intersted they can offer everything from endless miles of singletrack to uplift days at Les Angles or La Molina bike parks.Posted 8 years agoMidLifeCyclistMember
Are you looking purely for downhill?
If not and you don't mind your own company, there are loads of very well marked VTT trails in the area. I stayed at a place called Aspet ((SW of Toulouse) – the Tour goes through regularly for good reason) and the cycling was excellent.

Aspet is very good saw the tour there a few years back, pryactif again brilliant company bit further down the road from luchon. I would recommend having a go by yourself book a gite and follow some of the VTT and trails it is both fascinating and frustrating but brill. AQR are really really good as I said before.Posted 8 years ago
