CLASSIC CLIMBS

Visit the spiritual homes of cycling in the Alps, Pyrenees and Italy and tick the iconic cols of bike racing off your cycling bucket list.

Feel the gradient on the likes of the Passo Stelvio in the Italian Alps and Passo Giau in the Dolomites. Endure the lactic burn on the slopes of the Galibier. Climb into the heavens on the slopes of the Tourmalet and the ‘Circle of Death’.

New for 2019 is our Classic Climbs of Girona tour, training ground of the Pro peleton and the perfect training ground if you’d like to climb the bucket list climbs in the not too distant future…

Well, that was 4 days I will never forget. 11 chaps taking on the stunning Cols of the Pyrenees. Lee and his team, Peter, Boris and Georgia, took wonderful care of us all. There was a lot of fun, on and off the bikes. […]

Last week we stayed in Girona for our pre-season trainingsweek and hired bikes with ESC. The bikes were perfect - very good service by ESC when we arrived, Bryan, Louise and team are super friendly. We joined one group ride to Rocacorba - very cool! Thanks again for making our trainingsweek such a success and if we come to Girona again, you'll see us again!

Pieter FPerfect week

From the minute we were picked up at the airport Lee and the team made sure the trip was cracking. We tackled several of the big climbs such as the tourmalet from both sides on day in sun and the in snow. Both times with bike mechanics cycling with us (well done Boris) abd refreshments served at the top and at points on the mountains. [...] I guess the best recommendation I can give is if ESC will have me back ill be joining again on another trip.
