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 720k of riding, all within a strict cut-off of 100 hours! 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. 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.
In addition to the scheduled dates listed below, we have a range of dates available for private Raids of 4-22 riders throughout June-October 2016. These dates are always extremely popular (see the FAQs below and our Private page for further details and to find out why), so if you are planning a Raid Pyrenean in 2017, please get in touch with us via firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to help you plan the perfect package.
“I booked my Raid Pyrenees trip with Le Domestique Tours because I was looking for a suitable way to celebrate my 50th birthday. The trip was extremely well organized with great attention paid to all the finer detail e.g airport transfers, help assembling and tuning the bikes, and help with punctures on the road etc. Someone was always in the right place to provide more fluid, food or encouragement. I would recommend LDT to anyone planning such a trip. Coincidentally my official raid certificate arrived on my actual birthday along with all my birthday cards, a very fitting end to a fantastic trip”
