A long ride with sections of real road with a tendency to descend and the long climb in two consecutive sections Saut deth Pish and Varradós neck.
We left by the road of the Serrería Bridge, we passed Tredòs and go back to Unha and Salardú, Gessa and Arties by the road Ral GR-211 path with views and little difficulty, very nice for Garòs Casarill until Vielha.
On the GR-211.1 and stretch of Pedales de Occitania we leave Vielha towards Gausac and take a wonderful stretch of spectacular dark path until we cross the river and road towards Arroz to climb the narrow asphalt road transited towards the Saut deth Pish.
So far we have done some 22 kilometers of descent with some short comebacks from 1500m to 870m and now we have a painful climb (for cars and asphalt) in two sections:
First the 11 kilometers and + 800m towards the Saut deth Pish and then + 500m more uphill to the Collado de Varradòs, which is at 2050m, in almost 7 kilometers of spectacular mountain track that becomes hard for the accumulated distance as we finish with 41km of exit in the legs. Sunny climb but cool because of the height.
From the hill of Varradós in Bagergue, drop down 9-kilometer rappers, in Bagergue, and from here on the track that also climbs but more gently, about four kilometers to climb a scarce 300m of altitude until you reach the Baqueira road where we start the stretch of final descent to the starting point of the route including the right and precious little path that ends the exit.
