The most famous of all cycling challenges, the Raid Pyrenean (or Raid Pyrenees if you prefer) sees riders cross from the Atlantic coastal town of Hendaye to the Mediterranean coastal town of Cerbere, via 18 mandatory Cols and approximately 720km of riding, all within a strict cut-off of 100 hours (4.5 days of riding)! The Raid is a true classic cycling tour and one that Le Domestique Tours feel every dedicated cyclist should attempt during their riding career.
We have guided a huge number of riders through this challenge and as a result have an unrivalled knowledge of every aspect of it, from the training challenges that it presents, through to the overall Raid Pyrenean experience, via the high level of support required to ensure riders are perfectly looked after. To this end we have prepared a range of Raid Pyrenean Training Resources, along with our very own dedicated Raid Pyrenean Website, which contains full descriptions of the route, every climb, the history, kit lists, the logistical requirements of the challenge and a huge amount of additional Raid knowledge. For a taster of the Raid’s most famous climb, the Col du Tourmalet, read our Col du Tourmalet Ride Report. Whether new to the mountains or a seasoned regular, the Raid Pyrenean has something for everyone. For more details on the tour and our package see the FAQ section and Itinerary slides below, or get in touch if you have any questions.
Please note that our standard pricing includes Toulouse Airport transfers, perfect for those travelling from major airports where flights to Biarritz and Perpignan are not possible.
In addition to the scheduled dates listed below, we specialise in Private group tours and have a range of dates available for private Raids of 4-30 riders throughout June-October 2018 and 2019.
