Welcome to Velo Pyrenees

Our chambre d'hotes for cyclists, runners and triathletes is run by athletes for athletes of all abilities and those who enjoy the great outdoors. The central Pyrenees is an amazing area for running, road cycling and mountain biking. Triathletes and multi-sport athletes can take advantage of the high altitude alpine trails, swimming lakes and pools in the area.

We aim to be flexible and can cater for individuals or small groups. We offer free advice, mechanical services and local information. We help with training advice and itineraries, providing routes and maps.
