Col de Peyresourde (east)
About the ride
With clear views of the surrounding mountains all the way up the real beauty of the Peyresourde is that at 1,569m above sea level it means it can often be ridden earlier or later in the season with less chance of snow. The Col de Peyresourde is a classic climb that’s featured more than 50 times in the Tour de France. From Bagnères-de-Luchon in the east the ascent is just over 15km in length with a gently undulating profile, between four to eight per cent gradient that allows you to take in the scenery as it’s intended.
