I’m just back from another successful Backcountry Pyrenees trip. On this holiday we travel by van to different riding locations each day for 6 days of singletrack riding and skills progression. The variety is astonishing on this trip with each day seeing us riding very different trails in visually and geologically different areas. Most days have some van uplift as well as pedalling and we also run a skills session for a part of each day. There is plenty of time spent riding and lots of opportunities for good eating and drinking at the end of the day.
This trip is different from the Basque Skills Trip, which is based near the coast, in that we travel more, see a wider variety of areas and have less uplift overall.
If you want more uplift, more food and less travelling the Basque Skills Trip is the one. If you want to see more remote parts of the pre-Pyrenees, ride very different trails each day and are happy with a bit more pedalling then the Backcountry Pyrenees is for you. Of course we change the trails each time on all our trips to make it fun for people who might want to come more than once and more fun for ourselves. Our high level of repeat bookings is testament to the quality of these holidays and we’re very proud of this!
