Catalunya is a paradise for cyclists.
Nestled between the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean, Catalonia offers you lengthy rides along a stunning coastline, as well as rigorous mountain climbs, as well as a range of spectacular places. In addition, you can ride in comfortable weather almost all year long. Only for a few weeks in January and February is it too cold for your to enjoy riding - the rest of the year, the weather is either good or great for cycling!
Last but not least, as you ride through our country, you can not help but learn something about the Catalan culture.
Here we propose you some options:
- You can cycle nearly alone for significant stretches on the roads in Girona and thus discover why so many professional cyclists have chosen to live in this area. If you like steep roads, you can climb mountains such as the Mare de Deu del Mont, the Rocacorba or the Santuari dels Angels. Perhaps the best road in all of Catalonia runs along the Costa Brava from Tossa to Sant Feliu de Guixols.
- Near Barcelona there are many great places to ride. There's no way to completely avoid traffic in a city like Barcelona, but we will show you some routes that are safer and offer a complete overview of one of the most amazing cities in the world. Cycle along the seaside and afterwards climb up the Tibidabo mountain, where you'll enjoy the best views of Barcelona available outside an airplane - an unforgettable experience!
- Towards the south there are numerous destinations that offer great rides. These range from the Penedes area, also known as the Catalan Tuscany, not only for its wines, but also for its cycling. Farther south lie Cambrils and Salou, home to the famous Port Aventura Theme Park and popular beaches, and which are also minutes away from solitary roads in the Priorat and other areas where the opportunities for cycling are excellent.
