Route du Hautacam – 5 Stage Grand Tour

In Cycle Tour, France, Short Rides by Phil

Filmed in Apil 2014 this is a 5 Stage incredibly scenic ride over mostly very easy rolling roads until the foot of the Hautacam where you can either finish or take it on as a challenge.  The Ride will start in the northern end of the Gers (Gascony) & head south to the snow covered Pyrenees which slowly grow in size.  If you enjoyed Aube Valley then this is much the same but with a few more hills & a obviously very tough optional sting in the tail.

Full Route Map with all 5 stages – Including the Hautacam climb which is the hard & very optional Stage 5 (if your looking for miles of easy roads stay with the 1st 4 stages for about 170km of flat to rolling hills roads.
