Coastal Warm up ride - 54 km
A fantastic way to warm up and get accustomed to the un-crowded and beautiful riding that this area of Catalonia offers. This ride is just over 50 km in length and offers the opportunity to see some of the great sights on offer while you cycle along. The turn around point is Tossa de Mar that has a stunning Citadel overlooking the blue waters of the Mediterranean sea - a great place to have a coffee before returning back to Sant Feliu.

Les Gavarres 1 - 93 km
This is a great day's riding that takes us through the heart of the Pine and Cork forests of the "Les Gavarres" protected area. This zone is a cyclist's paradise with quiet, good quality, winding country roads that are almost always free of traffic. There are several peaks to climb that will keep you on your toes before buzzing downhill back towards the coast.
Les Gavarres 2 - 95 km
Today we ride along the Tossa de Mar road before heading ‘up and over’ the Sant Grau climb. We then have a fantastic descent for about 10 km before cycling through the Pine and Cork forests of the 'Les Gavarres' protected area towards its Northern side where we cycle through some of the jewels in the crown of the Medieval villages of the Baix Emporda before winding our way back towards the coast.
Les Gavarres 3 - 110 km
We spend the majority of this ride cycling through the Pine and Cork forest of the 'Les Gavarres" protected area. We take a different route to the previous day to enjoy some of the stunning views from the 'Els Angels' monastery. We return via Girona city where we can stop off to enjoy a coffee in the Medieval centre of the city before continuing on towards the coast.

Medieval Villages - 90 km
Today we head out on a beautiful ride that takes us through the plains of the Baix Emporda, stopping off at the timeless medieval villages that are dotted throughout this area. We then return towards the coast with a final climb and descent through the "Les Gavarres" protected area before returning to Sant Feliu de Guixols.
Coastal Warm down ride 2 - 53 km
We finish our week of riding heading out along the stunning Sant Feliu to Tossa de Mar coastal road. However, after approximately 12 km we take the Sant Grau turning that takes us up the winding and challenging road to the Chapel near the top of the hill.
The views are spectacular and certainly help to
distract you from the climbing that you are
doing. From the peak of the hill it is a great
downhill and then returning to your hotel along
the beautiful Tossa de Mar coastal road to top
off an amazing week of riding!
This is a week of road riding that you will want to repeat over and over again and perhaps look for some new routes on your next visit. With the
climate of the Baix Emporda so suited for cycling you really can enjoy this tour at any time of year.
