Carfree days for cycling in the Pyrenees have been announced. Here's your chance to climb major cols in peace and quiet.

Poster for PYRÉNÉES CYCL'N'TRIP 2017

For five days this summer some of the most famous cols in the Pyrenees will be closed to traffic allowing cyclists to enjoy them in peace and quiet. (Although you should still keep your eyes out for the local cows!)

Each day up to three cols which will be closed between 9am and 12pm, with advice and encouragement provided at the bottom of each climb and supplies handed out at the top.

Although there will be no cars allowed, riders are still being asked to ride on the right and descend sensibly as access will still be allowed for emergency vehicles and locals.

The itinerary is as follows, click to find the profiles (lots of red)! and more details:

Monday 17th July: PEYRESOURDE - VAL LOURON AZET - PLA D'ADET 

Tuesday 18th July: ASPIN

Wednesday 19th July: TOURMALET - LUZ ARDIDEN

Thursday 20th July: HAUTACAM - COURADUQUE
