7-day mountain biking holiday
A 7-day mountain biking holiday aimed at avid sportsmen with adventurous spiritA great variety of routes, mainly off-road that run along scarcely known paths, are characterized by a varied terrain, featuring both slight and moderate slopes as well as more challenging and pronounced ones. The most demanding cyclists will enjoy conquering rocky trails with abundant ascents and descents.
A travel experience running along the most extraordinary spots of the Catalan Pyreness until the Mediterranean Sea. We believe there is no better way to discover and engage with the interior of Catalonia and its coasts than from the bike saddle!
Explore the comarca of Ripollés, followed by the comarca of Garrotxa- the county of volcanoes- where the visit to the picturesque village of Besalú won't leave you indiffirent. On our way to the coast we will pedal through the monumental city of Girona that boasts its well-preserved Carolingian wall dating back to the times of the Romans. With every step we will be approaching our final destination, a fishing town of Tossa de Mar.
In 5 days of the tour we will cover about 245 kilometers, alternating more challenging and technically demanding days with more laid back rides that will help you to perfection your cycling skills and gain control over the bicycle.
Without any doubt, this tour won't leave you indiffirent! So don't hesitate and book your trip now since the number of participants on the tour is limited!
Activity Level The technical ability required for the Backcountry Pyrenees is rated as 'intermediate.' There are some moderately technical and steep sections, but we will be mostly riding fast, smooth singletrack and doubletrack.
For fitness level, even though we may partially shuttle some of the longer climbs and will stop quite often (to enjoy the view, take photos, eat and drink, wait for others, repair our bikes etc) –the accumulation of multiple, long days of riding will add up. You must be in good shape to enjoy this trip.
Route: Barcelona, The region of the Ripollés, Garrotxa (Olot and Besalú), Girona, Tossa de Mar and back to Barcelona
