Friday 16th September

Foix – Puigcerda (135km)

The opening day is also the toughest, crossing two ‘Tour’ climbs in the morning, the ‘Col De Chiolu’ and the mighty ‘Col De Pailheres’, followed by a fantastic descent into ‘Cathar Country’ on the northern side. We then snake right at 85kms back in to The Pyrenees, progressing through the ski resort of Font Romeo, staying high, before descending to our Spa hotel in Puigcerda, just over the Spanish frontier, where David will meet us for Pre dinner drinks followed by dinner.

Saturday 17th September
Puigcerda – Pantano De Sau (110km)
Ride with David Millar on an easier day involving an initial 25km roll-out using small Catalan mountain roads over the Collade de Tosses, followed by effectively an 80km descent through the amazing national park scenery of the Pyrenees Occidental. We spin through multiple old towns and villages on our descent before stopping for the night at a glorious ‘Parador’ hotel, overlooking a great mountain lake.
