Etape 1 – 68km
A fairly lumpy first day as we climb away from the coast at Biarritz towards the foothills of The Pyrenees. You’ll get to stretch your legs in preparation for the climbs to come although the max gradient you’ll encounter today is around 9%, if only for a short stretch. You’ll see the mountains unfold in front of you in anticipation of what is to come on Day 2. The day ends at our Hotel in the beautiful mediaeval walled town of St-Jean-Pied-de-Port.
