The most beautiful road bike passes of the Pyrenees

Road Cycling Collection by komoot

As you pedal over rough passes and deserted landscapes, you may ask yourself whether you missed the border crossing somewhere and have ended up in Spain. You are, in fact, still in France, however: And you're riding the most beautiful passes of the Pyrenees.

As you pedal over mountain passes, the myths of early Tour de France heroes will seemingly spin around your head with every pedal stroke. On old-fashioned road bikes — the type of bike every cyclist would turn their nose up at today — they fought their way up these under-developed mountain passes at speeds you could only dream of. Today, carbon frames, GPS navigation and asphalted roads make the whole experience a fraction as tough as it would have been back then, although it's still one hell of a feat. The only thing that hasn't change is the view from the top — something that makes the suffering more than worthwhile; something that makes you forget you ever sweat a drop.
