Raid Pyrenean is a phenomenal challenge for any road cyclist. Beginning on the Atlantic Coast and finishing on the Mediterranean, you will have just 100 hours to traverse the French Pyrenees, covering 735km and 12,800m of ascent. In 2019, The Cure Parkinson's Trust (CPT) team completed it in 99 hours and 47 minutes. In that time, they shared a common goal, a lot of laughs and an incredible experience. After crossing the finish line, you will celebrate your fantastic achievement in the pretty coastal village of Cerbère and create memories to last a lifetime.

What about COVID-19? As with the rest of the world, we do not know what 2021 will bring. Marmot Tours have a good cancellation policy which has been unchanged by COVID-19 and can be seen here. The team at Marmot endeavour to make every trip hassle free so you can focus on what matters: riding!
