Participated in Raid des Pyrenees in mid June. Had a wonderful time. Xavier and the Guide Nigel where fantastic. They took care of all the details. Hotels worked well and served good dinners and breakfasts. Bike Basque does a great job in making a remarkable ride truly be a memorable one.

BikeBasque is the Best!!
We know that sounds a bit over-the-top, but it's the absolute truth. We took our first BikeBasque tour with Xavier in 2015 and have been a devoted fan of his ever since. We just completed a quick 3-day sojourn through the always beautiful Basque Country, ending with a challenging but breathtakingly beautiful climb up Col d'Aubisque.

So, what makes BikeBasque unique? One thing: Xavier Lopez at the helm.
Xavier's detailed knowledge of the area and its hidden treasures (including food, lodging, history, culture, sights, cycling routes, etc.) combined with his deep dedication to assuring that each of his customers has the biking experience that best suits them and enables them to both enjoy the ride and -- if so desired -- move to the "next level" in their cycling knowledge and experience.

We have never been disappointed in a single ride, hotel, or meal. Xavier is <<always>> several steps ahead with a keen eye to any necessary changes that need to be made. However, this doesn't happen often because of his knowledge and pre-planning skills. He is particularly good at coming up with alternative rides for routes to compensate for the previous day's challenge when it has extracted a bit more from you legs than you planned.

And all of this at an incredibly affordable price!

We will be back for more of the amazing sights and sounds of the Basque Country and the Pyrenees, of that we are certain. And we are equally certain that we will continue to look to Xavier and BikeBasque for organizing and guiding our adventures. Go with BikeBasque. You will not be disappointed!

Rented two bikes in May 2019. Excellent service from Xavier from start to finish.
He was extremely responsive and delivered the (brand new Orbea) bikes to our villa and recommended some great cycling routes around the beautiful Basque Country.
Will definitely use Bike Basque again - highly recommended.

Stride Review


They operate luxury and active cycling tours in France and Spain.


What Makes Them Stand Out?

Bike Basque are a small local operator, focusing in providing both luxury and active tours in France and Spain. Because of this specific focus they are able to provide extensive local knowledge and offer a unique glimpse of the country, culture, and history.

 

Who Travels With Them?

Their typical customer is between 30 and 40. While you don’t have to be an experienced rider, some level of physical fitness is helpful.

 

Where Do They Operate?

All over France and Spain, in particular the Pyrenees, Basque country and Burgundy.

 

Why Travel With Them?

For an extremely local experience, with experienced guides through beautiful countryside.
