At Eat Sleep Cycle we’re building a community of cyclists who love to ride new roads, summit iconic climbs & the simple pleasures of riding a bike.

Our cycling tours are completely unique. When you book with us expect small groups and an exceptional support team. Stay in the best hotels a region has to offer and be safe in the knowledge that we’ve scheduled your ride for the time of year offering the best weather & quietest roads.

Our base in Girona gives us unique access to our favourite European cycling destinations and we’re always on the road finding the next hidden gem, the next undiscovered col or epic gravel road.

We love to cycle, whether an epic ride into the mountains, or a leisurely spin to the best coffee shop around. We offer tours for cyclists of all abilities and inclinations.

Join us for a ride!
