At Eat Sleep Cycle we believe cycling is a powerful tool to change people’s lives.

We strive to offer the very best experience to anyone out there riding bikes – from those just getting started to professionals racing at the World Tour. We work with our favourite brands & are constantly searching for the latest cool products & the best in class bikes, kit & tech.

In our Girona Hub you can browse a wide selection of bikes, kit & accessories for sale. You can book your bike into our worksop for a service or fine tune your set up with a Shimano Bike Fit. We also offer bike rental, guided rides & tour packages in destinations all over Europe.

The Eat Sleep Cycle community starts in our Girona home, where all are welcome to join our club, social events & rides. We’re busy making cycling accessible to the unconverted, running women’s only rides & helping to develop Girona as a cycling destination, both for visitors & the local community.

Join our community, experience the world and savour the ride!
