Hi Simon & Help please

Post by Nevertoold » Thu Jan 17, 2019 7:51 pm

Hi Simon
I put the same question on the FB site but since realised and realised this part of the forum exsits ( and you )
I’ve just got back into some enduro riding after many years and found the TET
It also coincides with my love of the Pyrenees ( visited many times on road bikes

I’m looking for advice on one or two bases where we could camp
And ride the Tet for around 10 days
I have an 1990s TTR 250 and my Son has a KTM 250 two stroke , Both road legal
Thinking about Traveling down in my Van with the bikes and camping , Probably end of August / Begining of September
Any help or advice greatly received
Thanks
Wayne

Hi there Wayne, welcome to the Forum.

The first site is simples, Camping Collagats is right on the TET just outside of la Pobla de Segur. It's a great little 'green field' site and, more importantly, I have a base there so we can kick tyres, talk s***e and you can fill me up with beer in the bar! :)

It's near the crossing of the Great Eastern and Great Northern Routes, so plenty of riding there and in the surrounding trails.

Otherwise, it depends. You could leave your trailer and right west 'lite' for a few days and get to, say, the Bardenas Blanca desert round trip route or up sticks and head off east, where I don't know any particular campsites although there are lots to choose from. OR maybe do the same thing and ride 'lite' eastwards?

Cheers

Simon

Brilliant and thanks for the answer Simon
We are thinking about two weeks end of August-beginning of September but that could change
I know the site as we pulled onto it on the road bikes a few years ago but decided to carry on to Sort where we have camped a few times before ( shite facilities but what a veiw ) and good enough for us pair ( me and my Son )
I’ll let you know when and where as plans progress ( not much in the way of plans really just making the old van we use fit for the trip
Thanks again
