Ride Notes

Girona has long been home to pro cyclists for it's perfect mix of flat riding and more challenging hills & variety of climbs. On this 4 day weekender we squeeze in as much riding as possible in this beautiful region including some of the famous routes in the region (Rocacorba) and some lesser known climbs that we are confident will become your favourites. Each evening we eat out in a different restaurant to sample the great local food; this is an epic cycling weekend and city break rolled into one.
We arrive on Thursday and then get out in the afternoon for a spin. Friday & Saturdays rides are longer including a great day along the coast and then we have a decent ride on departure day. Two days off work, four great rides.

Ride Highlights

  • A collection of top quality cllimbs

    Over the course of the weekend we ride 7 climbs with a mix of distances and gradients, from the famous Rocacorba to some less known but equally incredible rides.

  • Lunch on the beach

    We all like to be beside the seaside and on this trip we pop down to the beach for some lunch on day two.

  • Costa Brava day

    On Friday we ride across to the Costa Brava coast and take in some stunning, quiet, ocean hugging roads.

  • Exploring Girona

    Most spring cycling breaks are all about the riding but the added benefit of Girona is we have a great city to explore. Each evening we eat at a different restaurant to sample the best local dishes.
