Mountain / Road Biking in the French Pyrenees

There are some fantastic tracks and trails on our doorstep for all you mountain bikers out there and equally good routes for the road bikers. So close to the Pyrennes there is fun to be had at all levels. Cycling through meadows, winding up through gorges, popping out the top to spectacular mountain views or looking back down on the valley below. It is possible to hire bikes for a day, week or even longer. We can organise this for you before you arrive if you like.

The Tour de France comes close to us each year, so any enthusiasts out there can come and see the real thing, yellow jersey and all

Bike hire


The voie verte is a dis-used railway that you can walk, ride, cycle, roller-blade along. Very safe and not too strenuous, it takes approx 30 mins to cycle from here or 10 mins in the car. There is 38 klms from Lavelanet to Mirepoix and there are lots of links to other tracks from it.
