Noted for its excellent climate, quiet roads and famous climbs, road cycling in Catalonia takes you on a journey from the medieval streets of Girona via sweeping Mediterranean coastal roads and over French and Spanish Pyrenees cols steeped in cycling history. Not far from Girona your road cycling challenge warms up with day ride to the mountain town of Sant Hialri. A favourite with the pro's (due to its steady but relentless climb of 30km!), return to Girona via a sweeping descent and an evening exploring the cafes and lively bars of the Gothic Quarter. From Girona head out to the Mediterranean coast following previously used stages of the Tour of Catalonia, Tour de France and Vuelta de Espana. Cycling through Dali’s hangout of Cap Creus National Park the route heads into the formidable Pyrenees mountains and across the border to the French port of Banyuls Sur Mer. Returning to Catalonia via the Col du Banyuls, it’s back up into the mountains to take on Col d’Ares (1513m) and coffee stop at the Pyrenean town of Coustouges. Descending to the relaxed mountain hangout of Mollo, the last day of cycling rolls through the lush, volcanic landscape of Garrotxa before arriving back into Girona for a very well earned beer!
