La Grande Boucle des Pyrénées
 


The Route

 

The route from Nice to Barcelona has been divided into 17 cycling stages and three rest days in Malaucène, Carcassonne and Luz St. Sauveur
 
The cycling days have mostly the same schedule : after a start early in the morning you cycle the distance at own speed to the next place. Normally small groups are formed by riders of the same strength and interest. 

The stages have an average length of 111 kilometres, depending on the profile and the location of campsites. 
At the start in Nice you get a detailed tour guide with all kind of background information about the route. Next to do that gets everyone daily a detailed map and description of the route.
