Bicycling information

We spent the nights in the following towns: Prats de Mollo, Ribes de Freser, Bellver De Cerdanya, La Seu D'Urgell, Sort Molinos, El Pont de Suert, Campo Torla, Sabiņánigo, Hecho, Isaba, en St Jean Pied de Port.

The best guidebook for this route is La Traversia de los Pirineos en BTT. It's in Spanish, but even if this language is not your best, it's very useful and has many maps.

We used these maps: Mapa excursionista 1 : 50.000 series 20 - 25 Institut Cartogrāfic de Catalunya. For the missing pieces: Pallars Sobirā - sud 1 : 50.000 Editorial Piolet.

There are bicycle (repair) shops in some of the larger towns.

Food and water: There were several days when there was no opportunity to buy food and water on the way.

Luggage: Our idea to take a van and drive it in turns with our luggage and spare bikes from one hotel to the next, turned out to work well.

Tip: bicycling in this heat, you will lose a lot of salt. A good way to replenish is to have soup.
