Are you ready for a real adventure? 

We are! 

Join us on this amazing trip through our back yard, the Pyrenees. We will be following the fantastic track put together by the ACT Team. 

This is a great track for those with some off-road experience. As with all of the tracks the weather will significantly vary the difficulty level.  ACT Pyrenees requires some off-road experience,however, we are including a day’s training from a local expert to prepare the team for the adventure that lies ahead. This tour is for solo riders only and is not suitable for pillions/passengers. 

You will have a team to look after you and a  support vehicle to carry any heavy items of yours, as well as tools, first aid equipment, emergency food supplies and everything you need to have a safe and relatively comfortable adventure. We say RELATIVELY comfortable because ACT Tracks are a challenge. A good level of bike  fitness is required. 

Due to the remote location of the track as well as other local considerations, we have decided to keep the track itself as a 5 day trip. We usually extend this by a day or two but this proves very difficult in the mountains with regard to accommodation. We will, however,  move away from camping on this track to help manage the time and comfort levels. This will still allow time to enjoy the stunning scenery as well as planned and unplanned stops that will arise. Even with a support vehicle and a team to help deal with any technical issues that arise these tracks are based on long days in the saddle. A little extra time will help reduce the pressure and gives more flexibility regarding accommodation. 

We will be staying in a mix of hostels and hotels. We are happy to carry as much of your luggage in the van as we can but access to it will be limited whilst off road so pack well and pack light! We are happy to advise as to what to bring. For those that do not want to camp we can arrange accommodation close to the campsites.

ADVENTURE Highlights

We give you full support but you still have to prepare.

This tour will cover a total of more than 2000 km with us, plus any that you cover prior to meeting the team and whatever you do to get home. This means that it will be tiring and at times physically demanding. Teamwork will help to manage energy levels, as will being able to leave items in the support vehicle rather than carrying them on the bike. 

If you are using your own bike it must be well maintained, protected and have suitable tyres. In general 50/50 tyres would be a good option. The surfaces are a mix of gravel, rock, mud and every combination of these that you would expect to find. Hills can be very steep. There are some optional sections that are proving to be very tricky, especially in bad weather. Those that wish to can attempt them, with a guide/instructor on hand,  whilst those that prefer to take the less technical option will be guided along the standard route. 

For those that wish we are very happy to give you the option to “lead” the group (under the watchful eye of one of the team) on sections of the track. There are also other roles that will be offered to those wishing to benefit as much as possible from the experience but they are entirely optional.
