THE RIDES. WEEKLY PROGRAM

DISTANCE: 95kms & 1,100m+

TOSSA DE MAR: First ride of the week: Costa Brava. This ride is awesome due to the loop from Llagostera. It epitomises what cycling Costa Brava’s coastline is all about. It’s got long but gradual ascents (the one to Sant Grau is unforgettable) sweeping descents, incredible panoramas and one of the best coast roads we’ve ever ridden. If you’ve lost your love for cycling, do this ride: it’s impossible not to feel happy. Lunch in Girona city before “siesta” time.

DISTANCE: 98kms & 1,200m+

SANT HILARI: A Girona classic, heading out to Angles before the 25km climb to the 850m town of Sant Hilari, a good place for a ‘cafe con leche’ stop before the long descent down towards Santa Caloma. Riding doesn’t get much better than this: peaceful, rolling roads with hardly any traffic, pretty woodland, medieval villages, and ancient churches.

DISTANCE: 60kms & 800m+

GIRONA + ELS ANGELS + CAMPOLIER : It ́s a classic climb in Girona. The gradients are never too intense, and the first climb starts just 4kms from Girona. The route was made famous by Armstrong: locals say he loved it for a short high-intensity training ride. Today is the day where we leave the hotel Carlemany and we ́ll finish our ride in the beautiful village of Banyoles, a luxurious but authentic accommodation within the ancient stone walls of our 17th century estate, Can Campolier.

DISTANCE: 71kms & 900m+

VOLCANO LOOP: You cycle through a special, old landscape. Among ancient volcanoes, rustic country houses, unique medieval villages and a fairytale forest. The “Garrotxa Natural Park” is one of the prettiest in Catalonia. It is known for its 40 extinct volcanoes and its beautiful ancient landscapes. Today you will discover 2 volcanoes by bike. Another amazing climb before the descent to Banyoles: a beer and the pool will be there waiting for us!

DISTANCE: 75kms & 2,200m+

MARE DE DEU DEL MONT: Today is the QUEEN ́S DAY stage! A classic climb in the area before Rocacorba the day after. This is a road with little traffic and elevation gain but with long straight stretches, making it ideal for warming up and high-speed cycling. At the top we can enjoy the breathtaking panoramic view of the stunning landscape. The sanctuary has a restaurant if we need to replenish our energy levels. We then go back on ourselves to Banyoles for lunch and chill by the pool.

DISTANCE: 40kms & 1,150m+

ROCACORBA: This is the “recovery” day of the week. The Rocacorba climb, starting from Can Campolier (Banyoles), is a challenging and most famous cycling route in the Girona area. Many local pros have made this climb their training ground, and the Strava segment of this climb has been fiercely contested by both professionals and enthusiasts, adding to its allure. What a week of cycling!
