Bike Tour Description

This tour offers, in only 4 days, a great view of some of the best corners of the area of Girona. The two first rides allows you to follow the steps of some of the pro cyclists that live and train in Girona, both great goals for those who like to challenge themselves. The following rides are much more easy but not less interesting. . More on the East, the last loop rides will take cyclists to an agricultural area, with plenty of medieval charming towns, worth visiting. The route to the coast, will lead you to one of most spectacular roads, that allows you to discover some of the pearls of the rough Costa Brava, with little coves and unspoilt settlements.

Day by day

Day 1: Arrival in Girona

There is plenty to see and do in this magical historical city. Spend the day visiting the Cathedral, which has the broadest single nave of Gothic architecture in the world and getting lost through the narrow streets of the ancient Jewish quarter, one of the best preserved in the world. We also recommend a stroll along the Rambla or the medieval walls, which gives you a fantastic panoramic view of the city.

Day 2: Loop ride Girona – Sant Hilari Sacalm - Girona (102 Km)

Delivery of the necessary documentation and bike fitting (if bikes rented). Epic loop ride made famous by many of the pro riders settled in Girona.  The ride allows to discover the Guilleries mountains and its capital, Sant Hilari Sacalm (known as “the town of the one hundred springs”. The ride is quite challenging at the part of the mountain range but worth it for its spectacular views.

Day 3: Loop ride Girona- Rocacorba - Banyoles – Girona ( 89km)

We start north direction to Banyoles, from there we have a challenging option, the ascent of Rocacorba (990m+). One of the most famous “cols” of the region. After climb and descent again to the lake Banyoles, we can have a rest in front of the quiet water. Then we circle around the lake, and we come back to Girona, through the countryside, on a undulated area.

Day 4: Loop ride Girona – Els Àngels – La Bisbal- Girona (94 Km)

The route take rides into the Gavarres mountains. Riders climb to 484m visiting the mountain top sanctuary of Als Angels (where Dalí was married) crossing the range down to the town of Bisbal d´ Emporda. The ride returns to Girona by crossing the Gavarres once more this time climbing to 400m over the col of Santa Pallaia, and returning to the city via the villages of Cassà de la Selva and Quart, made famous by the US postal team, which was based in Girona. The ride is a 60km blast on some of the finest cycling roads in the world containing two climbs as the road winds over the mountains back to the base in Girona.

Day 5: Loop ride Girona – Sant Grau- Sant Feliu – Girona (105 km)

We start south direction through a flat area, until Llagostera, where we start the uphill until Sant Grau. From there we start one of the most gorgeous descend with an amazing sea view. We reach the coastal road, that runs more than 20 km along the coast above big cliffs. We arrive to Sant Feliu de Guixols where an stop-and-go is vital not miss.
From there we start our return to Girona through the Romanyà pass and back to Girona.
