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

We value community, inclusiveness & low travel footprint which has a positive impact on the local communities we visit. We seek out the small hotels and restaurants which share our values and showcase the best a region has to offer. We seek the best local cycling guides who love where they’re from and take pride in guiding our guests on their favourite roads.

We strive to deliver the highest quality in everything that we do, be it repairing a bike in our Girona store, or delivering a luxury cycling tour. We always go the extra mile to offer the best service and make sure our guests depart looking forward to their next Eat Sleep Cycle tour. 

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.

Our cycling tours are completely flexible, guaranteed to run and are scheduled for the time of year offering the best weather and quietest roads. From our base in Girona we have access to the best cycling in Europe and we’re always on the road seeking the next hidden gem, undiscovered col or epic gravel road. We cater for all who love to cycle and offer tours for cyclists of all abilities and inclinations.

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