LOCAL KNOWLEDGE

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

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.

Feeling a little nervous on Monday for the Lazy Lunes ride, but the nerves soon passed as I was welcomed to the group by the charming Louise and Lee. This set the scene for the week which was full of challenging climbs, beautiful scenery and wonderful weather. [...]
