Col de la Croix Blanche

COL DE LA CROIX BLANCHE
Difficulty - Red or Blue
Distance - 52 or 38km
Elevation Gain - 795 or 285m

This is a lovely ride around the Argeles Valley that includes a decent climb to the Col de Croix Blanche, then a cross country route back to Argeles via Lourdes. The elevation gain is not too bad for beginners and as the top of the col is only at 820m this is a ride that can be done early or late season if there's snow on the higher cols.

The Blue Route No. 17 is an easier route that misses out on the Col de Croix Blanche and just continues on back to Lourdes after the Col de Lingous.
