Tour de France 2016:

The 2016 Tour de France will be passing through the Pyrenees at the end of the first week of the Tour, the 8th to 12th July. If you're staying close to Luz St. Sauveur, the best two days to see the Tour would be Friday 8th July, Stage 7 from L'Isle-Jourdain to Lac de Payolle, (on the west side of the Col d'Aspin), or even better, Saturday 9th July, Stage 8 from Pau to Bagnères-de-Luchon, via Luz St. Sauveur climbing the Tourmalet from the west side. That will be a very busy week for us, so be sure to book your rental bikes well in advance! As usual, during the week of the T de F in the Pyrenees, between the 08 and 12 July we have a minimum 3 day rental period.


Cyclo-sportives and Granfondos in the Pyrenees 2016:

There are a couple of big Cyclo-sportives this year that go through Luz St. Sauveur. For the first time, "La Marmotte des Pyrenées," that starts in Argeles Gazost and finishes at the top of Luz Ardiden. That is on the 28 August and the course takes you over the Tourmalet (twice), also the Hourquette d'Ancizan and the Col  d'Aspin. See  MARMOTTE Granfondo Series  for more information.


If you fancy the challenge of a 3 day cyclosportive, then the "CAMPILARO" is back for it's second year from the 24th to the 26th July. Day 1 takes you from Argeles to Col des Tentes. Day 2, Luz St. Sauveur to Pla d'Adet and Day 3, St. Lary to Argeles Gazost. 370km and 8,500m of climbing. For more details, see


When to Ride:

At the beginning of the season during April and May, the weather can be changeable and it may be cold at the higher altitudes, so be prepared ... The lower cols and the climbs to Hautacam, Cauterets and Luz Ardiden are rideable, but The Tourmalet and Aubisque are not normally open before the end of May. July and August are the busiest months - It is usually hot and dry but there are inevitably a few rainy days with mist at the top of the mountains. September is the best month for road biking. The weather is dependable and it's still warm but a little cooler than during the summer months, so perfect for climbing. The season lasts through to about the end of October.
