I've stayed at Les Deux Velos in September 2009 and 2010 and have had a wonderful time cycling the local Cols. Mark and Elma are extremely good hosts, not only providing excellent meals, sourced from their vegie garden, but also providing lots of advice on roads and local circuits. Mark is a keen rider and enjoys accompanying guests on rides and advising which restaurants to stop at for lunch. If you break down he is willing to perform rescue missions (I broke 5 spokes in a cycling accident rendering the rear wheel non-operational). Mark was willing to drive for 2.5 hours past the Port de Pailheres to perform the rescue. I would recommend the lodge to anyone who enjoys cycling and walking. There are other guests on site and for the single cyclist you will find other people to ride with. The cave paintings near Tarascon sur Ariege are definately worth a visit. A local cycling jersey (Ariegeoise ride) can be purchased from the Tourist Information office in Tarascon.
