Day 1: Departure

Arrival to Girona airport. Caldes de Malavella-L’Escala 80 km.

We will pick you up at Girona airport and transport to starting point, to have a quick breakfast, will do bike setup and start first stage, including about 80 km with some climbing. Few miles after the start begins the climb of the day, a beautiful, solitaire and not very steep climb named Santa Pellaia. After the descent towards La Bisbal we will cycle through not very crowded roads, and then a stop in Peretallada is worth. Old and touristic town, cars are not allowed and lots of restaurants and shops welcome the tourists. After Peretallada we will continue through Torroella de Montgrí till L’Escala..

Arrival to the nice L’Escala, coastal town to enjoy a nice hotel by the sea.

Day 2

L’Escala Figueres 95 km

L’Escala-Figueres 95 km including the climb from Roses to Alt de Perafita and stop in Cadaqués, where genious Salvador Dalí lived. And also the steep climb to the Monestry of San Pere de Rodes. Nice aerial views from there to Port de la Seva and Costa Brava. This area maybe windy, with the so named, tramuntana wind, very strong if it blows. Figueres is a must, with the Museum dedicated to Salvador Dalí.

Day 3

Figueres-Olot 110 km

The first climb is the toughest all over the trip. Mare de Deu del Mont, at 1100 mts. In my opinion much nicer than the much more known Rocacorba (nearby). Very steep parts and incredible views from the top to the Canigou peak, the highest in the Eastern Pyrenees. Once gain in the valley the stage continues to Banyoles (worth a stop for lunch/coffee) and then to Mieres and the Vulcano de Santa Margarida, as Olot is the main town of the vulcanic La Garrotxa region.

Day 4

Olot-Olot 90 km. Transportation to airport.

If you thought that the main part of the trip was done, you failed. Last stage includes the very tough and beautiful Coll de Bracons, and the even nicer Coll de Condreu and El Far. El Far is the perfect ending for a trip in Catalonia. Unbeatable views.

We will be able to have a shower and be transported to the airport (Barcelona or Girona)

– “Excellent support on a multi-day cycling trip for a couple.” 
Claudio planned our routes, booked accommodations, shuttled our luggage and rented bicycles for a six day trip from Barcelona to Girona via many Catalonian cycling highlights. All this for two people! Most outfits wouldn’t even talk to us.Claudio is an enthusiastic guide with an incredible amount of knowledge about the area. The routes were suited to our ability and the equipment was excellent. Each day had a highlight: Tibidabo, Costa Brava, the Spa at Balneari Vichy Catalan, the hill out of Tamariu and on to Begur, the climb to Sant Pere de Rodes, the farm stays in Perelada and Joanetes (plus Collada des Bracons bonus climb), capped off by the view at el Far and riding into Girona.
I’d heartily recommend any trip with Claudio and would love to go back. Unforgettable

“There were eight of us looking for a Spanish-Pyrenees cycling trip. Montefusco Cycling organized a 7 day trip cycling ~110km a day on the best roads Catalunya had to offer. Hardly a car on many roads! For an all inclusive price, Montefusco Cycling provided us routes, did the airport transfers, booked the hotels with breakfast & dinner included, completed the daily luggage transfer from hotel to hotel, provided on-road support including lunch stops, and coordinated storage of our bike boxes. Hotels and food were top notch (except for one…it WAS the nicest in town though) and we really appreciated our immersion in Catalonian culture. Both Claudio Montefusco and James Martin worked tirelessly every day to make sure there was nothing we needed to be concerned about….”

“My wife and I were planning a two week bike ride through the North of Spain and South Western France. We generally do our own thing, not being tour oriented. We discovered Claudio online. His communication was extremely professional and timely. His pricing was a good value…”
