Mountain Biking

The mountain biking here is superb, with over 450 km of marked cross-country trails in the Ariege. In summer local ski stations open their lifts to bikes for awe-inspiring downhill riding. We have a few hard-tail xt equipped mountain bikes for hire, but can arrange hire of full-suspension and 29ers too (or bring your own bike). Get in touch for more info about riding, holiday support, packages and bike hire.

Road Biking

The Ariege is a fantastic destination for road biking, with hundreds of kilometres of quiet roads winding through dramatic mountain scenery. We are perfectly situated for taking on some of the famous Tour de France climbs, such as the Port de Lers, Plateau de Bailles, Port de Pailheres and Ax-Bonascre. We can help you with maps, route advice, bike maintenance and even transport if you want to do something a bit further afield. And we can also organise bike hire if you don't want to bring your own bike. Get in touch for more info.
