For motorbike fanatics, Pyrenees Motorcycle Tours – Relais des Motards offers a unique way to experience the splendour of the Pyrénées. The beautiful mountain scenery and rural views are best seen and explored on motorbikes, taking in some amazing winding roads and mountain passes to discover new spectacular views around every bend.  Don’t take our word for it, the Pyrenees is listed at No. 2 on the CNN website ‘10 of the World’s best motorcycle rides.

The breath-taking mountain backdrop provides an incredible scene for your ride, and well-informed Kevin will enthusiastically lead you along some of the most sinuous and exciting routes which snake through the mountains and reveal incredible views across the Pyrénées.

The Ride Outs can include, to name but a few, Col du Tourmalet, Cirque de Gavarnie and Col d’Aspin and can be adapted to suit all levels of rider, with Kevin happily leading the way. Some routes also cross the Spanish border into the beautiful Val d’Aran region and the Reserva National de Benasque taking in the stunning N260. His local knowledge means that Kevin can also take you along lesser-known routes which are equally breathtaking and remain relatively free from other visitors, making them even more pleasant to visit.

Col d'Aubisque, is in our opinion, one of the most beautiful places you will ever ride to....

There is no planned itinerary for the Ride Outs they can be adapted to suit your requirements and fit in with the weather.  We leave after breakfast at 9.30 and stop for coffee, lunch and photos, getting back to Pyrénées Motorcycle Tours – Relais des Motards anywhere from 5-7pm where there is always a cold beer waiting and time to shower and sit down before eating at around 8pm.

Dak from RAT Pack Peterborough posted two videos on youtube after his stay, links to these are on our video page.  Lister a photography enthusiast took these pictures during his stay click here to view them.

 

The Rides Outs are designed for passionate bikers who enjoy fresh mountain air and (mostly) wonderful weather (be prepared for all weathers and road conditions!), with the chance to see some amazing sights and the opportunity to meet other enthusiasts.
