Great mountain biking routes in the pyrénées

The lush wooded valleys of the Central & Western Pyrenees are ideal for mountain biking holidays at all levels. The Eastern Pyrenees offers little shade by comparison with relentless heat and hard gravel tracks. Whether you prefer to kick up some dust, climb through the shade, or tackle daemon descents, VeloLoco will help you find your ideal vacation.

Col de la Core

Consult our library of local route information and plan your days riding. There's no need to take a minibus from our base, all the routes you could hope for are right on the doorstep. Set out from Aulus-les-Bains and descend the gently winding Garbet valley towards Oust, perhaps head to the right after 8km to the Cominac VTT domaine. Here you'll find 93km of signed mountain bike routes. Alternatively, head out of Aulus and up the Col de Latrappe (a short 25min road climb), from here you can traverse the valley sides and have a great view of the Garbet from 500m above it! Leaving the village to the East is the greatest challenge, the Col d'Agnes is steep, no trouble on an MTB but watch those roadies suffer! Once at the top, there are lots of great rides back to choose from. Try the Col Dret, starting as a forest track, then becoming a footpath, then traversing on fabulous single-track; this is one route for the technically minded! You could equally drop back down to the valley following the GR10, technical with huge boulders, great fun! Stay high and go over the Port de Saleix towards Vicdessos... the list goes on and on...
