Girona, Spain

Organiser's Description

Cycling holidays made easy - Sportive Breaks takes you to the best climbs, routes and rides in Europe without the hassle. Join our team of expert guides, mechanics and local hosts and discover some of the best riding on the planet!

Our packages include return airport transfers, half board accommodation, and rides each day. 3 night trips available from the end of April through May.

Girona has long been home to pro cyclists, and is a perfect mix of flat riding, more challenging hills, and a variety of climbs, and we squeeze in as much riding as possible in this beautiful region. Over the course of the weekend we ride 7 climbs with a mix of distances and gradients, from the famous Rocacorba to some lesser known but equally incredible rides. We cover 400km over four rides, with trips into the Catalan Hills, a day along the Costa Brava and a final day assault on the mighty Rocacorba.

All our rides are led by our expert ride leaders, with mechanics in our support vans. We have regular feed stops, and lunch in a local cafe. We average 25km/h on the flats and climb at our own pace, regrouping at the summits. 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.
