These guys made our 4 day cycling trip a pleasure. Excellent comms in advance, great bikes, good value, brilliant local knowledge. Personable and professional. Don't bother looking elsewhere, just use these people. They seem to be at the heart of the Girona cycling scene.Andrew FCouldn't be more helpful
They were very accommodating and helpful for my cycling trips! The rented bike provided was very comfy (Lee changed the stem to suit my reach as well). They uploaded the routes to Rocacorba and Costa Brava on my Garmin. The accommodation was great too, everything you need at the door steps (food, coffee, groceries, etc).Bernie_Perth_OzCycling heaven
