Whilst cycling with us you may wish to take part in one of the many sportives held in the region. Send us an email to let us know which event you are interested in and we will help arrange with your registration and the travel to and from the event.
The sportives are exceptionally well organised, taking you along quiet roads and depending upon where the sportive is held differing terrain. The entrance fee usually includes a gift ranging from jersey, t shirt, bottle of wine. Food and drink stations are frequent on the routes and an after event repas is normally included in the price too.
L’Ariegeoise is perhaps the largest cyclosportive in the area, attracting cyclists from all over the world. 2016 has 4 distances the longest covering in excess of 160km and over 3300m of climbing, a truly fantastic cycling fete taking you through some of the most beautiful mountain scenery.
