Val d’Azun Valley loop

This cycling route loops around the Val d’Azun valley and is a great option for those days you might not want to head up into the high mountains or the weather up higher is not so great. This loop can be ridden in either direction and you will definitely find some sections that will test the legs with gradient. The loop includes Col des Borderes which, although short, has a sting about it. You can also add on extra mileage off this loop and could consider Lac d’Estaing, Col de Couraduque, Hautacam, or Col du Solour. Plenty of options to mix it up
