Argeles Gazost Valley loop

This cycling route loops around the Argeles Gazost Valley on nice and quiet country roads. It takes you through many of the small villages that dot the hillsides. It’s perfect for the days you want something a little easier than the big mountains that surround you on this ride, but it is by no means completely flat. It takes you through the center of Lourdes where there are plenty of cafés to stop in for a coffee and croissant. As with our other loops, it can be started anywhere if you are staying somewhere other than Argeles Gazost.
