Cycling's best kept secret

OVERVIEW

There isn't anything like riding in Andorra

Cycling has arrived in Andorra, to stay. Not in vain, more and more are professional cyclists in Andorra, who settle in Andorra and professional cycling teams that train in Andorra. In addition to the Catalan Joaquim “Purito” Rodríguez, other active cyclists have chosen Andorra as Esteban Chaves, Dan Martin, Dani Moreno or Jonathan Castroviejo, and members of the Movistar team such as Marc Soler, Imanol Erviti, Carlos Betancur and José Joaquín Rojas. Also in Andorra are professional cyclists from the Michelton-Scott team, previously known as the Orica team. It is not surprising to see many of them train on the roads of Andorra.

CLIMBING PARADISE

Andorra sits in the heart of the Pyrenees, in fact it is a country of ‘seven valleys’. So it’s just perfect to go col hunting here. Many mountain passes have some big names and famed by the Grand Tours. Le Tour is known to have ‘queen stages’ here and the fate of the yellow jersey has been defined here too many times!

CYCLING'S BEST KEPT SECRET?

Andorra is a small and wealthy community with its roads being in perfect shape and people are more than welcoming cyclists on the roads. Pros live here by the hundreds, yet still it’s not Alpe d’hues kind of environment – you can find some peace of mind and chill out here as well.

VIBRANT CULTURE

Andorra’s ancient culture began with the Romans and was influenced by the region’s location close to several mountain passes leading to northern Europe. Over the centuries, Spain, Italy, and France played a strong part in its development into a primarily Catalonian area with Catalan its main language.
