Heading to Girona this year for a wedding (not mine).
Hoping to sneak a day out on a hire bike to hit the hills.
Anyone been, any recommendations for a. Best one day ride out of Girona b. Holiday Stuff to do in the city and surrounding area
For rides I'd grab some routes off Strava - check out Tom Baylis, Samuel Williams, Robert Gesink, James Oram, etc. etc.
Stuff to do - La Fabrica, the cathedral, explore the Old Town, old stone bridge over the river.
Bikebreaks Girona Cycle Centre for hire.
Hope that's not too late (probably is) and gets you or others started. Enjoy!
Thought I'd revive this thread as will be heading out to Girona in the near future with a couple of friends.
Anyone know a decent place to stay - we're thinking Air Bnbs et al? Also, any recommendation on bike rental places (after half decent road bikes).
@GwGs didnt take his bike
I went recently, I rented off bike breaks girona, and my mate rented off eat sleep cycle. Bike breaks has more bikes available (though they were all synapse’s) but eat sleep cycle were really nice guys and easier to deal with. Either will be fine.
Also stayed in a great Airbnb for cheaps. I’ll try and find out who it was, mate arranged it
I’ve got two decent routes on my Strava too which I can post when I’m on my comp
@Sparky always discourages me from cycling in Spain.
Defo stay in the old town. There is a bike rental place in the centre of the old town that does Cannondales.
Roc a cobra is the local mountain, it's a dead end at the top, worth doing. Nice walks round the city walls and out to local hills, tourist info have info.
Wear a helmet. I didnt and had got fined.
Brilliant thanks for the tips!
Heading to Girona Friday. Rocacorba is on the radar, aiming for under 45mins.
Any other climb recommendations or avoids?
