When to Ride

The best time of the year to visit Luz-Saint-Sauveur

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 are rideable, but the Tourmalet and Aubisque are not normally open before about the middle of May.

July and August are normally hot and dry but there are always a few rainy days, while September is maybe the best month for road biking. The weather is a bit cooler than during the summer, so perfect for climbing.

The season lasts through to about the middle of October. For current weather conditions, see meteoblue.com

The Tourmalet

Tour de France Weekend


Service was second to none, the road bikes we hired were top quality and condition. Considering this was possibly the busiest weekend they could ever have with the Tourmalet stage of the TDF on their doorstep, the staff could not have had more time for us in setting up the bikes and advising on routes. I will be back!

What a Gem!


What a great place to rent bikes. The shop is well located in Luz St. Sauveur, close to the bottom of Col de Tourmalet. The bikes we rented were lovely high end Scotts, offered in a generous range of sizes, Enough gears (11-32) to get you up the steeps! We can’t say enough good things about this place. We will go back soon!

Hassle-free way to rent great bikes


We rented two Scott Addicts from Ardiden Velos and were very pleased with the bikes and the service we received. Ardiden Velos delivered the bikes to our hotel in St. Savin so they were ready for us to ride the day arrived, and they picked them up afterwards. We had an awesome time riding in the Pyrenees

4 day hire in October


I can highly recommend Matthew's operation in Luz, easy to contact beforehand by email and very easy to deal with in person. The Scott bikes are a real pleasure, particularly lightweight for the mountains, and Luz is a great place to start from. I have used Ardiden Velos on a couple of occasions now and will do so again.

Tourmalet Cycling


Ideal location for cycling up to Col du Tourmalet. My Scott Addict 10 was in great condition, the downhill rides were awesome! The best I've ever enjoyed! Great fun riding up and down Luz Ardiden ski station as well. Thanks Niki for showing me the routes. Beautiful scenery everywhere especially at Lake Gloriettes and Cirque De Gavarnie.

Perfect Bikes for the Pyrenees


We couldn't have been happier with the bikes were rented. I take a bike on the small side, and they gave me an excellent bike that was exactly the same size as requested. It's also worth a visit to their shop where they carry an excellent selection of jerseys and goods. Several in our group stocked up on nice memorabilia there.

Professional, friendly service, high quality equipment


This is the second time we have rented bikes from Ardiden Velos. As with our first occasion it is difficult to fault the professional and comprehensive, as well as the very friendly, service provided by Ardiden Velos. The bikes are of the of the highest quality and the idiosyncrasies of some members of our group were happily accommodated.

great bikes, great service


3 of us rented Scott Addicts from Ardiden Velos and were fully satisfied. Matthew brought them to our accommodation, helped fine-tune the fitting and gave us good advice for our planned rides. We stopped by the shop the first day just to make sure everything was workign 100%. The bikes were in excellent shape, clean and in good working order. Couldn't ask for better!
