Bring your bicycle or mountain bike to the campsite
The Ariège and its Pyrénées offer the perfect setting for a lovely bicycle ride during your campsite holiday.
So many paths to explore
The Ariège provides a wonderful natural arena for your bicycles rides. If proof is needed, note that the Tour de France passes through the Ariège practically every year! Some of the department’s heights, like the Beille plateau, the Col de Port mountain pass or the Mur de Péguère pass have all become popular stages in the iconic French cycling race.
During your holiday in our campsite in the Ariège, you too can pedal through these amazing mountain landscapes. A host of mountain bike trails are to be discovered. There are varying levels of difficulty, from green to black. You can even set off easily straight from Yelloh! Village Le Pré Lombard.
For mountain bikers, the Ax 3 Domaines Bikepark is also worth a trip. Ride around the specially adapted trails, which are again suited to different levels. The ideal place for downhill mountain biking fans as there is a total 1,400-metre vertical drop!
Finally, for some lovely cycle rides with the family, there are 2 greenways in the Ariège. The first starts out from Foix and goes as far as Saint-Girons, while the second links Lavelanet to Mirepoix.
For several years now, the L’Ariégeoise Cyclo-sport Challenge has started just 400 metres from the Le Pré Lombard campsite. The race is the highlight on the department’s cycling calendar. It is open to all cycling enthusiasts with different routes available for you to (re-)discover the splendid circuits around the Ariège Pyrenees.
The Cyclosportive takes place in June every year. The event draws large crowds, so you are strongly recommended to book your rental accommodation or pitch at the campsite in advance. Reserve as early as November, for example!
