We start by exploring the closest climb from home, just a few minutes away. Els Angels climbs a perfect 10km at a gentle average of 3% to wake the legs up. We round off with Santa Pellaia for a bit more verts before returning in time to enjoy the best of the day and recover for the big week ahead.
Coffee & Energy Stops
Day 3: Coastal Ride
We head down a mix of quiet farm roads and smooth tarmac to the beach and ride along the stunning coast. Expect breathtaking views, constant hard work (lumpy along the coast—not a beach ride!), and a magical day.
115km Dynamic Ride
Long but gradual ascents
Medieval town visit
Day 4: Rocacorba
The legendary Rocacorba is a must-ride for any cyclist visiting Girona. Tough, unrelenting, and very rewarding—this 10km at 8% will put the "challenge" of Mt Faber in perspective.
We pack in the miles and verts today. Two back-to-back climbs—Sant Hilari and Coll Formic, before a 40km descent hitting 160km/2200m in total. That's a memorable day!
160km of Quiet, Winding Roads
