Surface of the stage
This stage is mainly along county roads and involves significant slopes. Some of the climbs last for several kilometres, while there are also long descents along which you need to take care.
Leaving Galan, along the D939 road, keep a look out for the left turn onto the D10 road to Clarens.
Arriving at Lannemezan, you may need to be patient and certainly need to be careful crossing the D817 road, often busy with traffic.
There’s a non-signposted link to Puydarrieux Lake and its bird reserve, a Natura 2000 site. In Tournous-Darré, turn left towards the church and the Mairie on the Route de Tournon, heading in the direction of Puydarrieux.
Connection with the Véloroute V81 cycle route
A bit before Galan, just after the bridge over the Baïsole River, it’s possible to turn right via the Rue des Bourgalats in the direction of Montastruc onto the D28 to cycle as far as the town of Tarbes via la Véloroute V81 cycle route.
