The Raid Pyrenees (Raid Pyrénéen) is an epic coast to coast route from the Mediterranean Sea to the Atlantic Ocean. Take on the challenge, climb the individual mountains one by one and reach the Atlantic.


 This ride follows on from the T2055.23 Col du Tourmalet  & the prior 2 BluRays T2056.06 & 07 of Pyrenees Stage I & II picking up the route some distance down the closed Tourmalet descent at the spa town of Luz.  We start with a nice 20km spin down the valley heading north towards Lourdes & then at Argelès-Gazost we turn west once again & start on the wooded climb of the Col de Spandelles that features some recovery sections as well as some steep parts. This ride finishes close to the foot of the Col du Soulor which will be the main climb of Part 5 T2055.73
