With the depopulation of rural areas, the networks of footpaths that were used to connect different villages are also disappearing. Sometimes these routes climbed to the top of the mountains in search of hills that opened the door to a new world. In the Pyrenees these trails are now being recovered by pedalling.

Trail Tales: The Call of the High Ways

The Pyrenees trace ancestral paths through their foothills; a network of trails carefully laid out by past generations to sustain a way of life that, sadly, has disappeared with the passing of time. As the rural population moved to urban areas, many ancient trails lost their original purpose, and when a trail loses its raison d'être, it eventually disappears. This is how this story begins, in which a network of disused elevated routes were waiting for a new purpose.
