Do I need travel insurance?
While not mandatory we do highly recommend it. Standard travel insurance usually covers cycling so long as you are not racing.
Are your guides insured?
Yes our guides are certified by British Cycling and first aid trained so are insured to guide you. This is required by European law!
Can I rent bikes from Cycleinfrance?
Currently we don't rent bikes however we can arrange this for you. Prices start at 310 Euros/week.
Do I need to bring bike lights?
While not essential bike lights are useful. Increasing numbers of riders are using a rear light during the daytime to help drivers be more aware. Drivers in Europe are generally more aware anyway but is there such a thing as being too visible?
Do I need to be a certain age?
Our guests should be at least 18 years old at the time the stay here at Cycleinfrance unless accompanied by an supervising adult. We don't have an upper age limitA
Is there the opportunity to get a massage?
Certainly, there is a great massage therapist locally who can visit us here or you can visit her treatment rooms. Rates are 55 Euros/hour.
Do you provide GPS files to download showing routes if we guide ourselves?
Yes, we have an ever growing selection of rides on file to download.
Can I bring my carbon wheels to ride?
We don't recommend this. Due to the nature of carbon wheels we see a lot of problems here in the Pyrenees with the carbon delaminating on descents. Better to bring a more robust and reliable wheelset.... though of course that is your decision.
Do you cater for special diets?
Being a past chef I love food and I love seeing my guests happy with the wholesome food I make. Vegetarian and Vegan, Celiac, Dairy free.... please let us know at the time of booking and we will ensure we are prepared for your arrival.
Will I be met at the airport?
Yes, if you book flights in accordance with our transfer times for your group we will meet you there and transfer you to your accommodation.
What will the weather be like?
It would be handy to be able to predict the weather but sadly we cannot. However the weather here in the Pyrenees is generally very good. For comparison, its on par with Mallorca for example, though without the awful heat at the height of summer. Even in the hottest months in the Pyrenees (July and August) it cools in the evenings so sleeping becomes much easier.
Unable to predict it but we can deal with it, so if we do see a rainy day approaching we are masters of making plans to avoid it by riding in a different direction or perhaps in extreme circumstances having a spa day.
Is it possible to arrive a day early/stay a day later?
No problem at all, so long as we have availability of course. We will just apply an additional nightly rate.
Can I have my non cycling partner join me?
This is no problem at all. There is plenty to do in the area other than cycling too so there is no reason for him/her to be bored.
