For those with a little off-road or trail riding experience and a sense of adventure we offer a mix of trails and back roads, guaranteed to challenge you and guaranteed to deliver spectacular scenery.
You do not have to travel the world to have an adventure but maybe this will ignite the spark that takes you further afield?
The Pyrenees offer some incredible trail riding. Organisations such such as TET (Trans Euro Trail) and ACT Adventure Country Tracks have done great work to keep thousands of Km of trails open to the public throughout Europe by promoting responsible riding and working with National Parks, Forestry Departments and other interested parties.
What this means to us, as riders, is that by riding responsibly, we can have legal access to some of the most spectacular scenery and carefully chosen trails.
We are offering fully guided adventures that will include some sections of the ACT or TET trails.
These Trail rides will also benefit from a support vehicle and will offer the choice of camping, local guest house accommodation or a combination of the two.
Some off-road experience is definitely required, as is an Adventure Bike with suitable tyres. The trails we select will be accessible to most ADV bikes with trail tyres, feel free to contact us regarding your bike and tyre choice.
We ride at a pace that will be comfortable for all and ride in a way that respects other trail users, wildlife and the land. A good level of “bike fitness” is required as each day will include several hours of riding in the standing position.
Road legal Motorcycle with trail tyres. Due to the 50/50 mix of road and trail riding, dual sport (50/50) tyres are recommended but 80/20 road/trail tyres should be sufficient.
We recommend that you consider any modifications that will improve your motorcycle for offroad use. This may include the fitting of engine bars or other protection for the bike. We will only ride during daylight hours so there is no specific requirement for additional lighting.
Feel free to contact us with any tyre or bike suitability questions.
Some form of armour is definitely recommended. Please bear in mind that temperatures may reach 35 degrees at some times of the year, even in the mountains. Vented armour, whether incorporated in mesh touring clothing or offroad style clothing is definitely the preferred option. French Law dictates the use of CE approved gloves for road use. Boots should be supportive and protective. Adventure boots or MX boots are best. We are happy to carry extra gear in our support vehicle as required.
Hydration, a camel pack or similar system is recommended. We will carry a good supply of potable water.
You will need your manufacturers tool kit as a minimum. Our support vehicle will carry a good selection of tools but if you have any specific to your bike then please bring them.
Favourite snacks etc.
Accommodation will generally be mix of B&B, camping and hotel. This can change according to the route selected. Routes will vary according to rider requirements and weather, for example.
Over the next few weeks we will confirm the dates of the Trail Riding tours and which type of accommodation will be offered for the specific tour as some people love to camp and some really do not.
Flight transfer service available if you have a hire bike. The tour is a mix of trail and backroads so we will ride all of the tour. A support vehicle and technical help will be available where required.
Food will be supplied when camping, as will snacks and drinks whilst on the trails. Evening meals and breakfasts will depend upon the specific accommodation used and this will be confirmed when the tours are released in February.
