Welcome to Cycling Paradise Andorra

Ad Andorra - Welcome to Cycling Paradise AndorraPlenty of pro cyclists live in Andorra, and with good reason. The roads and scenery are fantastic. Located in the heart of the Pyrenees, Andorra is a Valhalla for cycling enthusiasts, boasting excellent facilities.

The biggest pro cyclist contests in the planet find their way to the mountainous microstate. Take for example La Vuelta. The 3rd stage of the upcoming Spanish Grand Tour leads to the skiing area of Arinsal. The peloton starts from the capital Andorra la Vella in the following day to re-enter neighbouring Spain.

The biggest race on the planet, the Tour de France, visits Andorra on a regular base as well. Two years ago it was Sepp Kuss who emerged victorious from the breakaway in Andorra la Vella. The American attacked on the final climb, the Coll de Beixalis, and extended his lead on the descent to Andorra la Vella. Tom Dumoulin also knows what it feels like to win a Tour de France stage in Andorra. In 2016 the now retired Dutchman turned out on top – quite literally – in a monster stage that finished in ski resort Ordino Arcalís, close to the border with France.

Those who dare to battle gravity will be rewarded with amazing views of the mighty Andorran nature. With every hairpin bend the landscape becomes more majestic. Suffering from an imminent hunger pang? No problem. There are plenty of picnic areas and good restaurants along the way to stop and re-energize.
