Our Pyrenees to the Mediterranean Road Riding holiday includes many of the incredible rides that the professionals who are based here train on. The riding starts in the mountain town of Ripoll where you will get your first taste of some of the stunning peaks of the Pyrenees on your way to Olot, the capital of the La Garrotxa volcanic region.

Your next day's ride encompasses some of the best of the high mountain climbing and descending that is on offer in the Pyrenees. You will cycle through stunning mountain villages surrounded by high peaks that are picture perfect to stop for a photo.

The next day of riding heads towards Girona city and follows the route of one of the great rides of the Girona area with a stunning twenty kilometre climb followed by a fantastic 18 kilometre descent, all on beautiful quiet country roads.

Your second day in Girona city is spent riding one of the favourite road riding routes of the professional teams. The following day you cycle towards the coast through the lovely rolling Girona countryside before climbing up and over the coastal mountain range to join the famous 'Tossa de Mar' coastal road, which was part of the 2009 Tour de France stage from Girona to Barcelona.

The last day of riding takes you through the 'Les Gavarres' coastal mountain range with three great climbs and buzzing descents before returning to your four star hotel by the shores of the Mediterranean Sea to relax in the hotel's Spa.

The accommodation for this tour is staying in an beautifully located 3 star hotel in Olot, the capital of the La Garrotxa volcanic region, as well as two beautiful 4 star hotels in very different and exciting locations.

Day 1

Pyrenees Warm up ride - 40 km

A great warm up ride to get accustomed to the un-crowded and beautiful riding that the Pyrenees mountain area offers. The ride is about 40 km in length and includes a taste of some of the great mountain riding still to come. There is the option to extend this day of riding, depending on your arrival time.

Day 2

Pyrenees mountain loop - 90 km

Today's ride takes you up and over some stunning peaks in the Pyrenees. The scenery is classic mountain country with high peaks in all directions with timeless villages dotted along your route. There are some great climbs mixed in with swooping descents that will keep you on your toes (and brakes!) as the scenery goes buzzing by.

Day 3

Olot to Girona - 105 km

This is one of the great Girona road rides with some of the most spectacular scenery on offer in the whole of the region. There is plenty of time to set your rhythm with some quality climbing and buzzing descents that just seem to go on and on. This ride will clearly explain why so many professional riders choose Girona as their winter training base!

Day 4

Les Gavarres loop 1 – 70 km

Today you will ride in the ‘Les Gavarres’ mountain range with two great climbs and descents. Your route includes climbing the ‘Els Angels’ mountain, enjoying the stunning views of the Pyrenees all the way to the Mediterranean Sea, before enjoying one of the best descents of the week into Girona back to your 4 star hotel.

Day 5

Girona to the Mediterranean Sea - 60 km

Today you leave Girona heading for the coast, cycling along the rolling Girona countryside before heading towards the coast for your first good climb up and over the coastal L’Ardenya range. Once at the coast you join the famous Tossa de Mar road that was part of the '2009 Tour de France' stage from Girona to Barcelona. Your route follows the beautiful coastal road as it hugs the sea towards Sant Feliu de Guixols where you are based for the final two nights of your tour.

Day 6

Les Gavarres loop  2 - 100 km

Your last ride of the week is spent climbing and descending the beautiful country roads through the Pine and Cork forests of the 'Les Gavarres' coastal mountain range. There are three great climbs and descents before returning back to the sea to your hotel for a well earned rest after a fantastic 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.
