Further Rally in the golden Ariège
Come and join us this August, from the 23rd to the 26th, for the Further Rally in the golden Ariège, south west France.
Together with our friends at ZeroNeuf Escapes, we are hosting a 4 day camp out in Gaudiès which offers splendid views of the Pyrénées, where our riders and guests will be venturing into.
Camp, ride, hang out, wild swim, and support the riders taking part in the inaugural Further Race. They set off at 11 am on Friday 23rd August.
On Friday and Saturday there will be guided rides curated by the Further team. Two rides each day offering something for everyone at all levels.
Choose to ride out to meet Graham, the Lepidopterist, where he waits to discover and identity butterflies with you or meet up with the local Falconer in a quiet meadow.
Those of you wanting to ride rougher, longer and harder, we will offer that too. Cold beer provided. Whatever you choose, we hope to make it one you’ll remember. We’ll even check your bike for you on site before you head off.
Wake up with a wild swim in the river L’Hers or jump in to cool down after your ride. Join us in the evenings for cinema in the barn.
There’s plenty to see locally too. Visit the Medieval towns of Mirepoix (25km), Foix (32km) and Carcasonne (57km) or gently explore the pretty villages scattered between.
On Sunday, we will be celebrating the winner of this years race with a special cook up with local organic produce provided by La Ferme Las Laous from the Massat Valley.
Like the local wildlife, sunsets and stars, itinerary is subject to change.
