Costa Brava Cycling

Costa Brava Cycling

Costa Brava is one of Spain’s most popular tourist destinations and awarded by The National Geographic Society among the top 10 travel destinations.

Its nature, climate and history create a setting of beauty that never fails to seduce, with its lush vegetation propped against the blue and green immensity of the Mediterranean Sea.

Let us seduce you with some of the most amazing rides in Spain. Riding along the curvy roads and roller coasters along the Costa Brava, visiting picturesque fishing villages like Tossa and Palamós and relaxing having a coffee with beautiful views to the sea.

RIDE 1 – Romanyà i Calonge 84km, 915m

This is one of the most pleasant long rides from Girona. Once we arrive to Llagostera, after an easy flat ride and warm up, we will start climbing to Romanyà. At the top there is a small village and the ruins of a Megalithic tomb dated to 2-3000 years B.C. It’s time to have fun, a fast descent, curvy and wide roads all the way to Calonge and to Palamós where we will have a coffee break by the beach. On the way back to Girona, we’ll climb La Ganga, a 4km climb at 4% and have an option to face the big challenge of els Àngels.

RIDE 2 – Tossa i Sant Grau 98km, 890m

The ride to Tossa de Mar is everyone’s favorite route. Tossa is a charming coastal town and is one of the most popular beach towns for locals. It is the starting point for the rollercoaster road along the coast. After about 11km, we will turn left for the Sant Grau climb. Here, the sign says 5km to Sant Grau. Expect an additional 1km climb up to the top, not the easiest one though. The climb is practically traffic free and has amazing views of the Costa Brava on switchbacks up the chapel. After the climb, we descend down to Llagostera and roll back to Girona.
