Col d'Aubisque and Col du Soulor

Second only to the Tourmalet as the most visited mountain in Tour de France history, the Col d'Aubisque should be on every Cyclist's To-Do List. From Luz-Saint-Sauveur it's about 50km to the top via the Col des Borderes and even though it's actually downhill for a few km after the Col du Soulor it's still a very tough climb!

 

If you're totally knackered by the time you get to the Col de Soulor, there are a couple of very nice cafes there open during summer months and even if you turn around and head back down to Argeles-Gazost and Luz-Saint-Sauveur, you will still have climbed over 1685m.

 

Total distance 99 km and 2116m of climbing. Shorter route to the Col du Soulor and back, 79 km and 1685m climbing.
