Trip description

Girona It is a training ground for the international half platoon. It would be Lece Armstrong and his team who would show the rest of the international cyclists the advantages of this territory. After them, other teams and fans would arrive to travel its roads and taste the wonderful Catalan cuisine.

Girona, with its famous old town, is a place not to be missed. Its cobblestone streets and colorful houses along the Onyar River create a magical atmosphere. Within the Força Vella, one of the most emblematic spaces is the Jewish Quarter, one of the best preserved in the world.

Platja D'Aro welcomes you with its golden sand beaches and lively nightlife. But it's on the roads surrounding the city where the magic for cyclists really lies. Gently curving coastal roads take you past steep cliffs and hidden coves, offering you spectacular views at every turn.

Continuing towards the north, we will reach Roses y Cadaqués, charming fishing villages situated in a picturesque bay. The surrounding roads take you through varied landscapes, from vineyard-covered hills to hidden coves with crystal-clear waters.

La gastronomy The Costa Brava is as diverse as its landscapes. Try traditional Catalan dishes such as fideuá, suquet de peix, feast on fresh seafood straight from the Mediterranean. From grilled prawns to grilled fish, the local cuisine here is simply delicious.

All this experience accompanied during all the routes by a support vehicle with mechanical support, which will provide us with solid and liquid supplies, and the possibility of changing clothes after the ascents.

In short, a cycling trip through Girona in May is an experience that no cyclist should miss. With its stunning landscapes, winding roads and delicious local cuisine, an unforgettable trip awaits you. Get ready to pedal, explore and enjoy everything this beautiful region has to offer!
