Story by vecchiutti from pau, France, submitted on 07/02/2010
Ive climbed the Peyresourde both sides and ive found more difficult the way from Luchon than coming from Arreau.The starting just after Luchon is the hardest and when you reach the intersection to the Peyragudes no problem till the end.Just to ad that there is an alternative on this side by the ancient road by ""Portet de Luchon""

I climbed Peyresourde on both sides , but to my opinion the Luchon side is more interesting. The climbing is very nice with no very hard percentage, its regular. Very nice outlooks over the mountain around. It is possible to go back to Luchon by the road on the left when you go downhill that drives you in the villages

Did the Peyresourde this am. after a week in the alps it was a letdown. The highlight was the Cafe on top. Traffic was moderate, road was a bit rough on the decent.

Story by Rob Narejko from , Canada, submitted on 26/02/2009
Loved it! Being a heavier rider (180 lbs - although in shape) it was not punishing like Tourmoulet. I enjoyed the views. Stunning. This climb was awesome. The one of the best of my 10 or so Cols on my trip. I enjoyed sprinting to the ""finish"" line left by the TdF riders a few weeks earlier.

The Peyresourde from Bagneres dLuchon is a cracker, steady rather than a brute. However it is deceptively long so take it easy at the bottom. Try the alternative descent down the rougher narrower road....a good test of your descending skills 17/5/08
