La Voie Verte

LA VOIE VERTE
Difficulty - Green
Distance - 36km
Elevation Gain - 25m

By far the easiest route in the Argeles Valley is the "Voie Verte" that runs from from Pierrefitte to Lourdes. It's 18km long and is a smooth, flat cycling path that runs by most of the big campsites in Argeles Gazost. It follows the route of the old railway line from Lourdes to Soulom last used in 1992 and for a lot of the way runs alongside the Gave de Pau. The route is reserved for bikes, rollers and pedestrians.

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!
