Family activity holidays news: Pyrenees trip 'filled with twists and turns'

Those who go mountain bike riding on family activity holidays in the Pyrenees should expect to work hard for their fun.

Telegraph columnist Charles Starmer-Smith has detailed a recent bike ride in the mountain range, which forms a natural border between Spain and France.

A keen mountain bike rider, Mr Starmer-Smith took part in a training weekend with a couple of his friends.

Although he initially felt under-prepared, he quickly got up to speed with the steep climbs and used the stunning views to distract himself from the hard work.

Describing his feelings as he reached the end of his trip at La Mongie, the correspondent remarked: "I fought the urge to take refuge in one of the cafes lining this small ski resort.

"A wave of relief washed over me, but celebrations … could wait."

Those inspired to check out the Pyrenees for themselves could book onto one of The Adventure Company's family activity holidays.

The Active Pyrenees Family Holiday gives travellers the chance to explore the peaks on a mountain bike, along with taking part in white water rafting and trekking.
