We took a 40-mile ride with Claudio yesterday in the countryside around Girona, visiting and passing through a handful of medieval villages. First, I started corresponding with him a couple of months ago. He was quick to respond, helpful, friendly, and informative.
Claudio sent us train schedules, met us at the station, equipped us with very nice road bikes (of the frame sizes and pedal types I had given him in advance), and then proceeded to take us on a memorable tour of the gorgeous Catalan countryside on a route he obviously knows very well.
He was a pleasure to cycle with in every way, and we’re going to work with him now to set up a longer, self-guided tour using his equipment and help with preparations. Claudio obviously loves Catalonia, loves cycling, and loves making a contribution to other people’s time here. If you love cycling yourself, let him be the one to introduce you to this region!
I spent a great day cycling with Claudio. My wife was just getting back into cycling so Claudio set her up with an e-bike and she had a fabulous day. Quiet roads and just enough hills to keep it interesting.
We had an amazing time! Claudio is so personable and very helpful. He answered so many questions prior to our trip which was greatly appreciated. The biking was great, he had everything ready to go so we could just enjoy the ride. It was kind of time to set up a little side trip up Els Angles for my husband. Claudio is great to work with and I highly recommend no matter what your cycling ability or fitness level he will surely find the perfect tour for you.
