Rocacorba

Rocacorba from Banyoles Lake

Rocacorba has a reputation as one of Girona’s toughest climbs. Located north of Girona and blissfully close to Banyoles Lake, Rocacorba is a bucket list climb. The road spans 13 km and the first few kilometers lull all Rocacorba newbies into a false sense of security.

Perfectly crafted tours tailored just for you

Having had several years in Majorca for our cycling trips, we fancied a bit of a change this year, so booked a trip to Girona. Eat Sleep Cycle were superb. The communication whilst organising was great. The bikes we had were really top notch. Overall highly recommended. And the cycling has been superb.

Simon, UKSuperb

First trip to Girona and these guys made it a trip of a lifetime. Not only did they set us up with nice bikes, but they helped with transfers, restaurant recommendations, guides, or anything we needed. Highly recommended and we're coming back.

"ccgaut", Santa Rosa, CaliforniaAmazing Service

What a way to see around Girona - Brian, his team of guides and shop floor staff were exceptional. Great rides, good routes, fabulous coffee stops and lunches, very well organised.
