The Pyrenees ? France and Spain

There is little dispute that the mountains and hills that straddle the Franco-Spanish border (the Pyrenees) offer the best cycling opportunities in the world. As one of the hosts to the Tour de France, you are guaranteed an once-in-a-lifetime experience. Don't be intimidated by the difficult routes you see cyclists conquer on TV - organized tours take it easy, avoiding rough terrain and guiding you to optimal tourist spots instead. The best tours will take you on a trip over two weeks and 750 miles during August or September, with routes on both easy and rough paths. Riding with a friend is ideal, as teamwork helps on some of the tougher parts. From Cathar to Basque, you'll both delight in the premiere cycling spot that is the Pyrenees.
