Following a route through a GPS is quite simple. Of course, you must be sure that the chosen device is suitable for the practice of cycling (it can be mounted on the handlebar and visualized well), it has enough memory to record a route of more than 150 km with records every 50 meters, and It has a battery capacity of more than 12 hours (and you carry replacement batteries).
In Transpyr Backroads it is essential to avoid any mechanical setback. Participants can contract a mechanical service in advance to have the bikes checked at the end of each stage.
During the stages, it is not possible to assist the participants and the organization will not directly have anybody in this regard.
The organization guarantees the existence of bicycle cleaning points at the end of each stage, either with hoses or pressurized machines, as well as a small self-workshop space.
Your friends and family will be able to attend the different events: departure and arrival, briefing, pasta party … For this purpose, we have created the Accompanying Pack.
It is a pack designed so that they can come to cheer you up and share the Transpyr Coast to Coast adventure, enjoying it to the fullest. This pack includes accreditation as a companion, a tourist dossier to discover the wonders of the Pyrenees, tickets for Pasta Party, parking in a reserved area (at some stage towns) and other accessories.
If your companions only come one day, you will have the option to buy the daily party pasta ticket.
The Accompanying Pack can be purchased through your private area or at the organization’s office (RACE OFFICE).
Transpyr Coast to Coast takes place in June looking for maximum daylight and good weather. However, the meteorological difference in the Cantabrian and Mediterranean slopes and the altitude that will be reached at certain points of the route (maximum around 2000 m) must be considered, with the possibility of fast meteorological changes in mountainous environments.
