Argeles Valley Tour

ARGELES VALLEY TOUR 
Dificulty - Green or Blue
Distance - 18 or 34km
Elevation Gain - 75 or 100m

A super easy introduction to cycling in the Pyrenees. You can see the mountain peaks in the distance and the twisting roads, but you don't actually get to climb them! If you only have limited time or if you just need a day off from riding the cols, then these are easy, scenic routes. Do-able in early or late season when there's snow on the cols or it's too cold to ride at higher altitude.

You can buy the official Topoguide "Velo de route" Map book here from Ardiden Velos or from the Office d'Tourisme in Luz St. Sauveur. It has separate cards for 20 of the best road bike routes in and around Luz St. Sauveur that you can take with you on your ride. It's in french and the photos are a bit old fashioned, but the maps are easy to follow and the routes are still as awesome as ever!
