The Haute Route is, quite simply, the best amateur cycling event that we've come across. Haute Route Pyrenees is a 5 day stage race with rankings/general classifications. An incredible experience and one that gives the rider an unparalleled 'pro' experience.

We will be providing a package that includes accommodation, support and entry for Haute Route Pyrenees in 2020. The event starts in the Atlantic city of Biarritz and finishes deep in the mountains in St Lary - Soulan.  The 2022 route will be mouthwateringly spectacular!  630km and 16,000m of climbing crammed into 5 big days. Full details of the route will be available soon on the Haute Route website, Tourmalet is nailed on as a definite part of the course with many other classic and spectacular climbs that will make the absolute most of the stunning western Pyrenees.  

As an official Haute Route Tour Operator we are able to offer a full package that includes entry to the event. Your entry to the event includes many services provided by the Haute Route organisation. Our accommodation and support package is carefully designed to make sure you get the best possible environment to ride and enjoy this big challenge.

For 2022 we will also be providing accommodation and support for Haute Route Alps from August 21st - 27th and Haute Route Dolomites from August 30-Sep 3. 

Not sure what level of rider you need to be to complete the event?

Drop us a line to discuss this. We will only encourage you to join us if we are confident that your riding level is strong enough. That said, the 'cut off' times in the event are generous and it's an event that's very achievable for most keen road cyclists. We pride ourselves in the fact that all the riders who have joined us for Haute Route in previous editions have all completed the event comfortably within the time limits, a record we intend to continue. Don't forget that as part of our accommodation and support package we offer a free coaching service in the months leading up to the event. This ensures that you are as well prepared as possible for the challenge.
