Getting to the Atlantic from the Mediterranean Sea, crossing the Pyrenees in only seven days, has been a must for cyclists for many years. Now, Transpyr Coast to Coast opens new ways to achieve this extraordinary mission to a larger number of riders.
The MTB version is the best known and remains the icon of this sea-to-sea quest, having been included in many top 10 lists in magazines around the globe.
One of the novelties is the C2C Relay, designed for those who want to share this unforgettable experience in a more relaxed way, participating in relays that must complete half of the stage, handing over to their teammates at the second feeding station.
The second new option, E-Transpyr C2C, is for those pioneers who want to be the first to ride the Pyrenees from coast to coast on an e-bike. To allow the batteries to cover stages with an average of 100 km of distance and 2,500 meters of elevation, the organisers of Transpyr Coast to Coast guarantee a charging point at the second feed zone and the transportation of spare batteries for those who already have one.
Francesc Sallent, director of Transpyr Coast to Coast emphasises “Our goal is to accompany cyclists on an extraordinary mission that is unique in the world. And for those who want to do it with their friends, on their electric bike or on a roadwe will also be there.”
Considered by National Geographic as one of the 10 best MTB events in the world.
