Girona Challenge Tour map

 
 

The Challenge Tour includes the most famous climbs around Girona, the most popular among local riders and pros training in the city: Els Angels, Sant Hilari, Santa Pellaia (aslo called the Hincapie Climb), Sant Grau (and the amazing ride along the coast), Mare de Deu del Mont , and the challenging Rocacorba, will be checked off your list.

 

How fit do I need to be?

 

Cycling 6 days in a row and doing these kind of climbs is challenging in itself … but at the end, how hard it is always depends on the pace taken.
At Bikecat we do a good job arranging every tour with the necessary guides and support, and we do think that The Girona Challenge Tour is well indicated for moderate (someone who rides often) to more advanced level riders. If you want to work hard when we get to the climbs, no problem, it is your opportunity to push yourself to the limit and then check your time on the Strava segment to compare with the pro riders!

 

Take a look at the mileage and total climbing to have an idea of how much you would be riding, and how challenging it would be.
