I cycled to Col Du Soulor for the third time yesterday, 30th June 2019 in perfect weather conditions. I knew that the first 4 kilometres from Argeles would be as tough as the last 7. It is worth the effort for the bit in the middle which takes you through a beautiful, wide, open valley and through some picturesque villages. It took me 90 minutes to reach the Col but take note that I am 64 and weigh 79 kilos! From the Col you can continue to Col du Aubisque. It''s another 9 km but an easy cycle and, once again, a beautiful and well worthwhile ride.
