Dist: 54 mi / 86 km

– It’s in the Pyrenees on a roads that have many times been part of the route of the Tour de France.
– Good pavement.
– Good climbs.
– Beautiful rural scenery and picturesque French towns.
– French bicycling road signs which give regular statistics about the upcoming grade.
– I can’t think of any negatives about this ride, but it is rural France, so depending on time of day, time of year, etc., it may be difficult to find replenishment on the route. Plan accordingly.
