Trans Pyreneaca

Hey fellow riders,

A long time I have been wondering what trip to take this summer.
After a lot of nights watching your trip reports I have dicided to take it up the Pyrenees and do a trans pyrenees tour. With as much gravel, dirt as I could take.
I'm not a very experienced offroad rider so nothing really hard. Just dirth roads.
Has anyone tracks for gps I could have. That would be verry nice since I don't have a clou which roads are restricted, open, to difficult etc.
I have a xt660r so not a real enduro. So it would be GS like roads.

If anyone has tips and or tracks it would be super!

Thanks!

Niki

Have you considered doing the GR99 route that follows the River Ebro along the whole length of the Pyrenees

http://www.caminosnaturales.com/ebro...activos=Inicio

A mate of mine did it last year on his TTR250 over two weeks http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?s...0830.622563519

Hope this helps

Hi Harty, et al,

I've had a few enquiries about this route over the last few days so it's worth a mention here as well as I guess this may be where they have originated.

The Spanish Caminos Naturales and GR routes in general are geared towards hiking - and in this case cycling too. So much of the route is prohibited to motors, certainly all the bits I know personally. I'm certain that there are some sections in the 1,000 kms trajectory that are free for all as your mate found - but I can't open the Facebook report so can't say where they are.

Nor does the Ebro really touch the Pyrenees at all - you can just see them in the distance on clear days from Zaragoza, which is just about the nearest point the river Ebro ever gets to the Pyrenees!

Please don't get me wrong - all advice is welcome after all and I'm certainly not claiming to be anything more than an interested enthusiast - but are you recommending this or another route for the Pyrenees?

More positively, long distance routes in Spain are more usually called 'cañadas'. These are ancient drovers routes and are worth very serious consideration. 'Camino' means both a path or lane as well as a route asa whole, e.g. the Camino de Santiago, known in English as the Way of Saint James, is the pilgrim's route to Santiago de Compostela in Galicia.

Regards

Simon, aka baffled of Spain :)

Don't know if the dates match your summer plans, but this might be interesting for you:

To many roads cross private farms, natural parks...

Feeling bored while I was wheelchair bound last year I summarised the main laws here.
