IS THIS TOUR FOR ME?

This Ride Camp is all about enjoying long, steady miles over the off-season to prepare for the season of cycling ahead. Riders are welcome to ride at their own pace on any climbs, and guides will set a steady pace in between. We are experienced at adjusting rides to suit different rider levels within a group. Please give us a call if you have any doubts or questions.

We can customise the ride itinerary for groups of 6 or more riders and make this a custom camp.

LOCAL KNOWLEDGE

Ride with Eat Sleep Cycle and enjoy the best roads, landscapes & cultural experiences thanks to our knowledge.

I've just returned from a trip to Girona, almost entirely organised by ESC[...] The staff were super friendly and highly organised. Our bikes were superb and immaculate. We had such fun with the guides and we would not have seen as much without them. I cannot recommend ESC highly enough and I will be encouraging my cycling buddies and other club members to go! As a group we are planning a return visit next year!

cyclebabe72Superb views, roads, climbing and great coffee stops!

I took part in the January training camp with Eat Sleep Cycle and it was a great experience. It was very professionally run from the pickup in Barcelona airport to the carbon bikes (better than my own at home). I wasn't as an experienced a cyclist as the others taking part but this didn't matter, I was encouraged to ride to a level that suited me and they took me on beautiful routes perfectly matched to my ability. [...] I would encourage anyone half thinking of taking on a training camp, a biking holiday or of doing some cycling while on holiday to give Eat, Sleep, Cycle a call.

Best Shop in Girona! I have visited Girona a number of times.[...] Totally Class AAA experience. I used there service to unpack and re-pack my TT and also rented a classic bike. The mechanics are super, I have been traveling for years and yet to see such professional packing. The bike rental service is best of class. Most important the staff is nice, professional and eager to help. I will be back! Don't think twice, The best in Girona!
