Experience the Greats

2023 saw the first edition of the Pyrenees Escape and what a week it was. Back for 2024, the Pyrenees Escape is your chance to ride the most legendary climbs of the Tour de France. Experience quiet Cols, stunning villages and soak up the history of the Tour in a week of riding you'll remember, forever.

  • 6 Days & 6 Nights

    Staying true to our 6 day format, the Pyrenees Escape features 6 days of riding, and 6 nights luxury accomodation near Argeles Gazost.

  • Over 500km & 14,000m

    Experience the highest and most famous climbs in the region, with over 530km of riding and over 14,000m of climbing.

  • Fully Supported

    Ride with the Band of Climbers team on the road, and enjoy van support at all times. No need to carry any kit, we'll carry it for you. Just enjoy the ride.

Ride the Giants

Ride the Tour's most used climb, the Col du Tourmalet from from both sides, plus so many more ascents made famous by the Tour de France. With over 14,000m of elevation, the Pyrenees will test the legs, body and mind in a social trip that will see you make lifelong memories.

Exclusive Escape

With just 12 riders, the Pyrenees Escape is a deliberately intimate and exclusive trip. An adventure, not a race, you can ride with the Band of Climbers team with full support, photography, and more, with a small group of like minded riders from across the globe.

Fully Supported

As well as ride guides from Band of Climbers, you can enjoy the luxury of van support at all times. We'll carry your spare kit so you don't need to. Mechanical support is on hand with tools at all times, plus if you need to take a break, jump in the van for a rest and catch the group.


Our next Pyrenees Escape will take place in June 2024. The 2023 edition sold out in minutes. Make sure you're registered for news on dates for 2024.

    Before coming to this Alpine Escape, I expected a high level of support, lodging, meals, rides... I was truly amazed, blown away, how Band of Climbers team exceeded these expectations in every way! Truly memorable experience, best cycling vacation I've enjoyed so far!

    This was my first ever Band Of Climbers experience and it certainly did not disappoint... from start to finish, everything you could possibly wish was included, so all you had to do was turn the pedals. This trip turned into an emotional life changing experience and one which I was happy to share with the new friends I have made, as a result.

    The best week on a bike I’ve ever had! The rides, scenery, accommodation and support crew were all first class and the friendships made within the group will be long lasting.
