Kick off 2022 with a week of cycling with Eat Sleep Cycle and clock up some quality miles under bright blue Girona skies.
The itinerary kicks off with a Girona-classic & the well-cycled road up Els Àngels. On day 2 ride north out of the city to Banyoles Lake, soak up views of the Pyrenees with a coffee in hand, or tackle the steep slopes of Rocacorba. On day 3 cruise along the Vall de Llemena to Olot.
For New Years Eve ride the 25 kms up to Sant Hilari and take an afternoon siesta to prepare for an evening of celebrations! New Year’s day brings a spectacular ride to the coast (what better than fresh sea air to clear any hangovers!) Finish the week with a ride out to Empordà across flat lanes for a delicious coffee at Rustik bakery.

I recently visited gerona on a cycling trip and came across this new company! They were excellent from the start and made my trip such a pleasure! It was a one stop shop for everything I wanted on this trip and nothing was too much hassle! Brian was my guide, he has a great knowledge of the area & knows the hidden gems of gerona of which there are many! I will make this an annual trip and would definitely recommend! The bikes are top notch too!Sean CThanks guys for a great trip
