Description

On the same day you could see over 100 cyclists climbing Mallorca’s alluring Sa Calobra, you’d be lucky see four riders on Girona’s testpiece, Rocacorba. With the absence of crowds of tourists, Girona maintains a true originality and old-world charm that many other cycling destinations have surrendered to the mighty tourist dollar. This is a city that fiercely clings to it’s Basque traditions and culture, much to the benefit of visitors.
Sipping coffee with locals, strolling polished cobblestone streets, and riding quiet, endlessly rolling perfect ribbons of asphalt characterize the Girona experience. There’s a reason that many pro cyclists chose to retire to Girona. In fact, there are many. Let us show you some.
