Girona cycling festival

This week-long, annual event pulls in spokes from across the world, so you’ll be in prime position for cycling with kindred spirits. The 125km Gran Fondo marks the festival’s end, and you’ll get to ride to the Volcanic Natural Park in Olot. Head for Girona in mid-June to enjoy the festivities (2018 dates TBC).

Riding range

Whether you stay on level terrain or head up into the mountains, Girona is the ideal base for varied cycling. Choose a challenge in the saddle and climb the steeper tracks, where you’ll be rewarded with staggering views across the Costa Brava.
