Spain’s Costa Brava region is world-famous as a great area for cycling. With its combination of country roads, hills and coastal towns, there is no shortage of amazing routes to choose from as cyclists go from charming village to village. It’s so good, in fact, that back in his heyday, Lance Armstrong lived in Girona — one of the largest cities in the region — in order to train there.
For clients who are visiting the Costa Brava and want do some self-guided biking, one of their first stops should be Girona Cycle Centre. This bike shop is an institution in the area. It can outfit riders with all the equipment they need, including rental bikes and detailed maps of the area. In addition, the friendly staff will offer local expertise and suggestions on fantastic rides. The shop also arranges and operates guided cycling trips through a tour company called BikeBreaks.
Girona is about an hour and a half by train from Barcelona, so visitors to the city can even arrange a day trip cycling the countryside.
Clients might not be training for Tour de France, but with the help of Girona Cycle Centre, they can have their own cycling adventure.
