Cycle Tours in the Pyrénées-Ariègoise
Tourné is in the heart of some of the best road and off road cycling int he Pyrénées. Off road pistes can be accessed directly from the house. The Col de Portel and col de la Crouzette are both directly accessible from here either by road or off piste via a virually unused mountain track that passes through the Artillac valley and Forest of Bellissans.
Top quality mountain and road bikes can be hired and delivered to Tourné for use during your stay. It is also possible for you, your party and hire bikes all to be met at Toulouse airport and transfered to Tourné. There are many options and for the serious road cyclist or off-roader, the prices are reasonable and the bikes are really top of the range and usually no more than one season old.
Using Tourneé as your base for a cycling holiday is ideal. The tour de France regularly passes through the local mountain passes so there is no doubt the terrain will suit serious cyclists.
