The Ultra Bike Pursuit series offers the world’s toughest mountain road challenges. Each event also comes with an easier loop option.
These routes are 100% on asphalted roads. No gravel trails, no bike path, no dull roads. Routes are carefully designed by a native local guide, regional expert and experience bikepacking racer to only showcase the very best of each region.
Three separate events: Tourmalet, Hautacam, Ultimate Pyrenees.
Ultra Bike Pursuit: Tourmalet – Eastern Pyrenees (France, Spain & Andorra)
The Tourmalet Ultra Bike Pursuit begins in the heart of the Hautes-Pyrenees, travels to the Mediterranean coast, and returns to the Hautes-Pyrenees. This route includes many legendary climbs of the Tour de France and Vuelta and also little-known gems that are equally spectacular and challenging.
This is not a mere Pyrenees crossing. This is a ride back in time in the footsteps of the Grand Tours pioneers. A ride steeped in over a century of cycling history. A ride so unimaginable that whether you finish or not, will remain etched in your memory forever.
The Ultimate itinerary will push the boundaries of your physical limits. The shorter loop is perfect for a first bikepacking experience. Optional sections offer a modular approach to adjust the challenge level to your wishes and needs. All routes promise an ultimate bikepacking adventure.
