In COLS&SOL you will find touring routes over asphalt for sport biking accompanied by facilities and proposals to be conducted both, on your own and with the support of our services and staff.

While selecting our routes, we strictly prioritize quality over quantity.

The area that we cover is the North of Spain and the Pyrenees.

BASOAK and FUENTES del VINO
Two great tours in the Basque Pyrenees and the north of Spain

BASOAK, Aralar - Irati and FUENTES del VINO, Aralar - Urbión, are 2 routes initially set to take over 3, 4 or 5 days each.
Both have two posible common starting points located in Arbizu -Sakana Valley- or in the ancient city of Pamplona. FUENTES del VINO can be started as well in the city of Laguardia in LA RIOJA Alavesa.

On each routes page you will find all you need to organize the journey: GPS tracks, maps, guide rail, roadmaps and links to all services you may need if you want to do it on your own.
If you prefer us to organize it for you, you can look at our Services COLS&SOL page for more information.

BASOAK is strongly directed to the East, cycling for two days by the Basque Pyrenees to the Irati forest, one of the largest woods in Europe. The route returns to Aralar in another 2 days, by the southern slopes of the Pyrenees first and crossing the Pamplona and Sierra de Andia later.

FUENTES del VINO is also strongly directed but this time to the South, through Navarra’s lands first and La Rioja later, until reaching the Urbión clump in the province of Soria. The return is again through the vineyards of La Rioja and the lonely roads of the Montaña Alavesa.

Both routes maintain the same philosophy: do "sport bicycle touring" but trying that at the end of the day there is still enough energy for something else besides resting until dinner. This is done to allow us at the end to have enough time to be able to learn - even slightly - where we are. Be it by getting into a pool, strolling through a forest, wandering through a village, or reading a book.
It is true that some stage of FUENTES del VINO, even without excessive climbing, takes time. But there is nothing which can’t be fixed by waking up a little bit earlier...
