Profile and track
The « Passejade » and the « Passejad’Elec » have become over a number of years two events that encourage and enable the greatest possible number of participants in the Ariège’s yearly cycling festival on the last Saturday in June.

The 2020 circuit takes you to Nalzen, at the foot of the first difficulty! You’ll have ridden some twenty or so kilometers with only a slight altitude gain.

The Passejade is a friendly and good-humoured event that has no classification and is open to 12 years old (with conditions) and above.
