    Raid Pyrenean coast to coast ride

    Excellent trip, good riding, fantastic scenery, iconic climbs, great food and great company. If you are used to cycling in the UK and are looking for some of the feel of continental cycling this is a great place to start. Any reasonably active cyclist will enjoy this, get your bike and head in gear, pace yourself for a long day (s) in the saddle and ride those classic Cols you see on the Tour...most importantly, enjoy the experience. Temperature on occasions was over 40 degrees and regularly in the mid 30's so lots of fluids are required, fortunately the support van is on hand and has stocks of water, nibbles, banana's etc plus available to take those essential 'summit' photos under the Col summit boards. Well organised trip with a range of accommodation (2 star hotels) some of which are in truly wonderful locations, good continental breakfasts and evening meals (not included) delivering local regional fare.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Reaching the first HC category summit in blazing sunshine, followed with a well earnt beer shared with cycling companions.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Vincent, very professional, knowledgeable and good company, he is an enthusiastic cyclist so clearly he gets the trip 'vibe' and is a ready source of support and information on the route. Always on hand and contactable by mobile if things should go awry.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Usual stuff, bit of training beforehand will pay benefits on the long climbs, take some gels and bars, keep hydrated, take sun cream and ear plugs, a couple of the hotels are located on main roads, so if you get a room on that side it can be noisy. Check your bike before hand, treat it to a new set of tyres and service.

    Pyrennean RAid

    This is a tough ride and July was hot. Despite this all of our group managed it. It was a nice group that road together on the flats and stretched on the hills. Everyone was considerate of each other. I broke my collar bone on day one which meant I was in the van most of the time.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    There is a gradual change in architecture and climate. You start with cow bells and end with cicadas.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Very good. Great knowledge and calm expertise from Vincent

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Accomodation is all 2* and is perfectly adequte. Some of the towns are more proaperous than others and all the menus were attractively priced.. We got picnic lunches from shops as it was cheaper and quicker to eat from the van

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    This trip could be a very rewarding experience.

    Pyrenean coast to coast

    I was a little daunted as this was my first overseas cycling tour and I am not a natural climber. Travelling from Australia I took my own bike and backed up two days later on the alpine cols of the Tour de France trip. The days are long and the climbs are touch especially day two and the last day. Day three was easier than expected. The descents are amazing and it is worth taking your own bike for the confidence it gives when descending and no blisters or other uncomfortable bits. It was great having Claude with a well stocked fridge, bites to eat, tea and coke. Having an official photographer was great.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The descent on the second riding day was amazing. Beware of the two tunnels they aren't lit and were very dark.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Claude was well organised. We never got lost. The van was always well stocked with food and drink. Claude was very friendly and accommodating.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    It's worth taking 6 days worth of cycling kit as the days are long and it is a hassle finding the time to wash it. The alpine cols of the Tour de France is a much easier trip with much shorter days if you are contemplating which to do and you're not cycling fit. If you can do the seven peaks challenge in Australia you can do this trip, Mt Hotham and Baw Baw are harder than any of the climbs on this trip.

    Raid Pyrenees Trip June 2016

    I took part in the Raid Pyrenees cycle ride in June 2016. It was an excellent week's cycling, with good company and an excellent guide. Fantastic scenery, challenging climbs up 20kms long, adrenaline fuelled descents and professional and efficient organisation sum this trip up. Not for the faint-hearted and you need to be fit but a great trip for the cycling enthusiast who wants a challenge.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Cycling up the Col de Tourmalet, a climb that the organisers of the 1910 Tour de France feared was unachievable.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Claude was an excellent guide. Professional, encouraging, helpful and friendly throughout the week.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Get fit before you travel and make sure you can cycle 80 miles a day for 6 days running.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    I have no hesitation in recommending Exodus for this kind of trip. I have travelled with them on cycling holidays twice and both trips were outstanding.

    Worth Every Penny

    Brilliant route, taking in iconic climbs which feature in the Tour de France, as well as less well known, but equally challenging hills. Good mix of climbing and flat. Daily distances just about right, making it challenging, but not torture. Good accommodation and food. Good group of people. Group leader, Johann, was helpful, pleasant and resourceful.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Swimming in the Med at the end of the trip.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Excellent. Executed some brilliant adhoc bicycle repairs to keep the group going. Kept a close eye on everyone on the road, providing food and water. Provided pleasant company at the dinner table. No complaints.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Just the usual. Shorts and gloves. Make sure they're up to it.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?
