You will then enter in the Valley of Castelloubon along the stream of Neez to arrive at the Auberge de Castelloubon where a good traditional meal made from fresh products will be waiting for you.
Once your stomach will be full, you will continue this day through the Col de Lingous then down by Les Angles to finally return to Lourdes by the plain of Lézignan.
On a par with the Col de Lingous, it will be possible to extend the route up to the Col de la Croix Blanche (906m), where a breathtaking view of the Pyrenean foothills and the Pic de Montaigu will reward the most courageous.

Classified “hors category” and theater of 5 arrivals of the Tour de France, the climb of Hautacam is part of the climb feared by many cyclists … By way of warming up 11 km on a slightly hilly road before you run to the biggest difficulty of this trip.
But rest assured, the electric assistance of the bike will allow you to apprehend this difficulty not without effort, but with more ease and comfort than on a conventional bike. After a 14km climb, a well-deserved meal based on local specialties will be served at the Arrioutou, typical Pyrenean inn. Authenticity and change of scenery guaranteed!
Day 3: Bike
From Lourdes, head towards Argelès-Gazost via the Voie Verte des Gaves, then you will climb up to the small village of Saint-Savin implanted like a promontory above the Vallée des Gaves.
