A Whole New World

New for 2023, we're hugely excited to bring you the first ever BoC Pyrenees Escape. We've been planning our assault on the French mountain range for some time, and with the help of our friends in Argels Gazost, we've planned an incredible week of riding that you will never forget.

  • 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.

Be the First

With just 10 guests, the Pyrenees is a deliberately intimate and exclusive trip. Be the first to ride the Pyrenees Escape, and be the first to ride in the limited edition BoC Escapes Jersey in 2023 - which is included in the trip. Also unlock a unique lifetime discount at Band of Climbers for taking part.

Luxury Accomodation

Our base for the Escape is the stunning guesthouse by Cycle Coffee Society. Newly built and specifically designed for cyclists, the home features a heated swimming pool, a gym, a garden to relax and a Rocket Espresso coffee bar. It's the perfect base, located near Argeles Gazost at the foot of Hautacam in the heart of the Pyrenees.

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 2024 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.
