Something was going on last week...We had guided rides everyday!

Girona is still considered for many people as a second destination when travelling to Catalonia. Being Barcelona the main attraction, an escape to Girona (1 hour and 1/2 train ride) is a very recomendable trip. And if you want to ride for the day, we have rental bikes! If you don't want to explore by yourself, you can join our guided rides and we will come with you. There are many rides and we have one for you!

This is how the week went...

Naa and michelle training in Girona. Next stop: the Alps. Giro de Italia stage. Good luck!

And the following day, Frank arrived from Philadelphia. Joe (Breakaway bikes) recommended him to join us during his trip to Girona. We rode 3 days, 310km.

Amazing views to the PuigSacalm mountain on our way to Olot.

Another fun day. John and Kate in the village market. We climbed Santa Pellaia and rode the small roads of "el Baix Empordà".

On our way back to Girona, we met Eric and Tracy. I stoped to say hello and got stuck amongst a sheep herd.

Thursday we rode to Sant Grau and the Coast with Eric, Tracy and Frank.

This week is probably the busiest in the year in Girona. The flowers festival - temps de flors- is a one week event that fills the old town with flowers and art.

Some friends of us, are working on a website I recommend to visit:

Spring Time!
