Part 1 of this Blu-ray series starts in the border town of Cerbère on the Mediterranean coast and heads 200 km west. The climbing adventure begins with the ascent inland along the Route des Crêtes to La Madeloc with incredible views of the French coast. From there it’s relatively easy going with a long stretch of rolling hills and flat marshlands towards the first two proper climbs of the Pyrenees: the Col de Jau and the Col de Pailhères, which was included in the 2013 Tour de France. Part 1 finishes after the Col du Chioula in the valley town of Sabart. Part 2 continues from here.
