With the addition of E-Transpyr C2C and Transpyr C2C Relay, Transpyr Coast to Coast proposes one and the same mission – but many ways to achieve it!
The Transpyr starts again!
Getting to the Atlantic from the Mediterranean See, 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 offer the opportunity to achieve this extraordinary mission to a larger number of riders.
The MTB version is known best 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 of two or four riders that have to complete half of the stage, handing over to their teammates at the second feeding station.
The second new option, E-Transpyr C2C, on the other hand, 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 100km 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, while the owners of an ORBEA e-bike, the event’s official bicycle sponsor, will have a spare battery offered to them by the brand during the E-Transpyr C2C.
Finally, there is the road version, Transpyr Backroads, for those who prefer to ride the remote and little-explored roads of the southern slopes of the Pyrenees. Much appreciated by road cycling enthusiasts.
"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 road bike we will also be there."Francesc Sallent, director of Transpyr Coast
ABOUT TRANSPYR COAST TO COAST
Transpyr Coast to Coast is, above all, a mission, a great personal quest consisting of crossing the Pyrenees in 7 stages between Roses (Girona) and Hondarribia (Guipúzcoa). It is also an exciting and memorable cycling adventure in which its participants flow through different valleys, towns and cultures of the southern slopes of the Pyrenees, crossing and connecting Catalunya, Aragon, Navarre and Euskadi. Transpyr Coast to Coast tests both the physical and the mental limits of the most experienced and enthusiastic cyclists and is already one of cycling’s “must-do” events. Recognised by different magazines, including the National Geographic, as one of the 10 best MTB stage races on the planet, it is a challenge to face at least once in life.
