Girona Cycling Tour
Girona is a magical place with switchbacks coiling up mountainsides; with quiet, smooth roads through a historic, hospitable landscape. A place with coastal views, with cobbles and climbs; a place where the pros choose to live and train. Around you, a rich culture, a slower-paced lifestyle and long days of golden sun, with nothing to do but ride.
Girona, a small city about an hour outside of Barcelona, is a European cycling hotbed. From touring travelers to pro racers setting up shop, it’s full of cycling culture and has riding that will leave you absolutely exhausted—and begging for more time to ride.
Girona is known for the outstanding vitality of its cuisine, characterized by a combination of traditional and avant-garde dishes, based on the use of local produce and time-honoured recipes. The city has many restaurants offering a wide range of fare: Catalan, Mediterranean, market and signature cuisine
Girona is a city rich with the historical and cultural heritage of Catalonia. The valley was settled and developed by various communities and empires throughout its history, including the Iberians, Romans, Arabs, Jews and Carolingians.
