THE MISSION

THE MISSION

Transpyr Coast to Coast is a unique mission in the world. Leaving the Mediterranean Sea it dives into unknown valleys and rises wild ridges, covering a staggering 800 kilometers and 20,000 meters of climbing. Through all kinds of extraordinary landscapes an invisible itinerary is followed by the GPS taking us, at the end of the daily adventure, in a space of comfort and rest, to start again the next day with new adventures, new discoveries and an extraordinary environment of international experienced cyclists.

The route is a balance between playful paths, technical stretches and fast tracks that leads to the objective, the mission fulfillment in the Atlantic Ocean. A cycling crusade for extraordinary heroes who like demanding challenges. Considered by National Geographic as one of the 10 best mtb events in the world.

The organization is not responsible for activities following the very same route of TRANSPYR performed by individuals or enterprises outside of TRANSPYR.
