Transpyrenees trip July 2020
Stage 1 Hondarribia-Saint Jean de Pied de Port 88 km with Otxondo and Izpegi. Izpegi is one of the nicest climbs in the basque Pyrenees! Nice first stage in tiny solitaire roads.

Stage 2 Saint Jean de Pied de Port-Bielle 99 km with Marie Blanque, a very steep climb included in Tour de France 2020. For those not-so-strong riders,it is possible to skip the climb to Marie Blanque.

Saint Jean de Pied de Port-Bielle

Stage 3 Bielle-Luz St Sauveur 72 km with Aubisque. Short second stage with lots of options to include and additional second climb (no exit, way and back) before getting to the hotel. A steep option is Luz Ardiden (stage ending in several Tour de France), a scenic one is Cirque du Gavarnie, and a steep and scenic one is Cirque du Trumouse. Your choice!

Stage 4 Luz St Sauveur-Bagneres de Luchon 96 km with Tourmalet, Aspin and Peyresourde. Queen stage. This stage is worth the whole trip. The best of the best. A stage to remember forever.

Stage 5 Bagneres de Luchon-Sort 107 km with Portillon and Bonaigua. A very steep first climb and a very high second one (over 2000 mts). We are already in Spain.

Stage 6 Sort-Puigcerdà 100 km with Coll de Cantó. Still a very demanding climb, and very long approach to Puigcerdà, slighltly uphill.
