The route of our official Raid Pyrenees tour crosses the Pyrenees, from the town of Hendaye on the Atlantic Coast to Cerbère on the Mediterranean.

The route of this Raid Pyrenees cycling tour takes you over many of the Cols including the Tourmalet, Aubisque, Aspin, Portet d’Aspet and Peyresourde; with around 11,000 metres of climbing during the route.

Crossing the Pyrenees as part of an official Raid Pyrenees tour is a difficult undertaking, however, it also gives you the opportunity to ride most of the famous Cols of the Tour de France. These Cols are steeped in history as the route passes through Pyrenees Atlantique, Aquitaine, Hautes Garonne, Hautes Pyrenees, and Ariège to the finish in the Pyrenees Orientale.
