Women Cycling Camp Pyrenees
17 September 2022 - 18 September 202279,00€
WCC is not a race, and it’s not a solo event either. It’s a collective ride-by and for women to encourage you to explore your ultra cycling limits.
The inscription will be 79€, including the GPX track, dinner, bed (you must carry a light sleeping bag, towel, and sandals/flipflops), dinner and breakfast are included too, and the hostel is reserved just for us in Sorogain. It also includes a welcome pack with a musset a cap/buff and some goodies from our sponsors.
The route is focused on tarmac but might include some gravel sections (very short and in very good condition), for 25-28mm tires.
The track will be fixed, you can find in Komoot the proposal for both days:
- Friday afternoon: At 18:00, will be a briefing for some last minute recommendations and connecting with other riders.
- Saturday: Departure at 8:00, from Pamplona to Sorogain. 198k +4.200m.
The climbs of this day are challenging, Errozate is EXTREM with 5kms over 11% of the gradient.
Please, make sure you carry big gears (34 teeth highly recommended).
After this climb, it is possible to do a shortcut. In that case, it always is possible to return and continue the old track. The day ends by climbing Ibañeta which is part of Saint James Way. Expect to meet some pilgrims on the way since this is a “Xacobeo year”.
Our route finishes in a Mountain shelter with a hot shower and delicious dinner (you must bring an inner sheet or very light sleeping bag).
- Sunday: Departure at 8:00 with 120km and 1800m. This route will take you back to Pamplona (estimated arrival at midday).
The second day is nicer for your legs, the hilliest climb is Urepel. You must keep and eye on the downhill, is very narrow and the road is expected to be slippery so you must be careful. More information will be sent few weeks before the event. The idea is to introduce you to self-supported ultracycling, enjoying nature, chill roads and good company.
