Enjoy the magic of Girona
from the city to the countryside
the varied landscapes
the Costa Brava
Looking for a cycling vacation not a ride camp? This is it! AND great activities for a non-cycling partner.
I’m relatively fit and comfortable on the bike and happiest on mild gradients or the flat.
I regularly ride for fitness, dry days I ride to work, and weekend fun with friends. I enjoy an active healthy lifestyle and occasional physical challenges.
Fitness and health is my life. I ride regularly on a weekly basis with mates and am comfortable with rides of around 4 hours at a relatively strong pace.
I ride on average 250 + k’s a week and enjoy a 100k rides on the weekends. I love to train, improve, and sometimes challenge amongst my friends.
Riding is my life! I’m not interested in racing, I don’t need to prove anything to anyone. I love the challenge and the idea of where my legs and bike can take me. My friends and I are always looking for the next cycling adventure.
Girona offers so much more than just pumping up the climbs on your bike. This tour is the perfect balance of awesome cycling and great vacation experiences, taking in the varying landscapes around Girona and includes excellent activities for non-cycling partners.
