We’re exploring the rugged beauty of Catalonia this October and discovering why so many pro cyclists call the area home. This will be our first Catalan adventure.
After spending our first night in the ancient city of Girona we’ll venture into the countryside and hit the gravel from Event HQ, nestled amongst the olive groves of a 17th century villa. Ride in small social groups supported by Hotchillee Ride Captains and experienced local guides, or hit the trails alone and keep your eyes peeled for the flagged race sections if you’re in it to win it!
Expect gastronomic Catalan feasts and evening entertainment, before sleeping under the stars in luxury teepees - this adventure is not one to miss.

With vaccines being rolled out around the globe we’re confident that travel and events can resume in a more normal fashion from the Spring.
However there are individual scenarios related to COVID-19 that may affect your ability to attend an event. This coupled with the reality of constantly changing guidance from different countries, and the fact that our participants travel from around the world, means it is impossible for us to have a rule for every possible situation.
Our COVID-Guarantee is designed to be as fair as possible to everyone, while also allowing us to operate our events with some certainty. Therefore, if because of individual circumstances (i.e. not something that affects the entire event) you are unable to take part you will need to contact us and provide us with the relevant evidence (e.g. Tests results, proof of contact from track and trace etc) which we will review on a case by case basis. This proof will need to be covering the mandated self-isolation or quarantine periods that are relevant to your circumstances.
Below are some of the answers (as best as we can currently give) to common questions you may have
What happens if there is a local lockdown that affects me travelling to the event?
If the area/country where you live is under a local lockdown, we would expect you to follow the guidelines from the relevant authorities. If these guidelines include advice not to travel to another area or country, which makes your attendance impossible we will review with the intention to transfer your entry as a credit to another Hotchillee event in 2021 or 2022.
What happens if I test positive or I am forced to self-isolate ?
If you test positive for COVID-19, or are forced to self-isolate within 10 days of the start of the event you will need to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with evidence. We will review with the intention to transfer your entry as a credit to another Hotchillee event in 2021 or 2022.
What happens to the travel I have booked for an event if I can’t make it or the event is cancelled due to COVID-19?
Unfortunately travel is not covered by us. We encourage everyone to take out appropriate travel insurance which includes COVID-19 cover.
What happens if the whole event is cancelled due to COVID-19?
If Hotchillee is forced to postpone a Multi-Day Event in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic you’ll automatically be transferred to the new date. If you’re not able to make the new date you’ll be able to use your entry, including any optional extras, as a credit against another Hotchillee Multi-Day Event in 2021 or 2022. If this credit is not used by 31 July 2022 you’ll be entitled to a cash refund.

What’s not included:

Your first night will be spent in a 4* hotel in the heart of Girona with easy access to the historic old town, shops and cafes. There’s time to explore but don’t get too carried away as the Rider Briefing and Welcome Dinner is not to be missed!
Once at Event HQ you’ll be sleeping under the stars in a luxury teepee nestled in the olive groves of the stunning 17th century villa. Each teepee has electricity, bedding, towels, and night stand.
First-hand event reviews from people who’ve been there, done that and got the breathable T-shirt, really help everyone choose their next event.
