reviews 2014 bikecatAs a CEO of an organization that has won the JD Power award for the longest streak of any financial services company on the planet, I know service, and value it when I see it.
Jaume and the team at Bikecat gave us an exemplary cycling vacation in Girona.
Hats off, and we will be back to enjoy the hospitality and great attention to detail.

reviews 2014 bikecatJaume and Debbie and the entire Bikecat team did the impossible: they made every moment of our trip from start to finish a total success. From the quality of the accommodations, to the fine detail on the rides, to the breaks at just the right time at just the right places, to the mind-blowing gastronomic experiences…they have set a new high bar in cycling adventures. I could not recommend the Girona rides more highly. And the ability for a rider of slower pace to feel just as good as a former Olympian cyclist amazed me — proof nobody is better at what they do than Bikecat

reviews 2014 bikecatI have been taking a group from our store on Bikecat tours for the past 9 years. I have had folks on my trip that have done Trek Travel, Back Country, Carpenter/Phinney, and Eurocycler trips. EVERY single one of those people has told me that Bikecat tours are hands down the best cycling vacation they have ever taken.

Jaume and Debbie do an amazing job of providing support during the rides, the routes are truly routes that only locals could know (9 years and we have never done the same exact route twice) there are just so many great cycling roads in and around Girona, and Jaume will cater those routes to your groups ability. The other bonus is Jaume and Debbie are both foodies, and they find the best restaurants for your lunches and dinners. Finally, Bikecat has the flexibility, knowledge, and ability to really allow you to see and learn about the beauty around you while challenging you to your level, whatever that may be on the bike.

If Girona/Catalonia is where you are going, there is no other tour company that you should consider in that region.

reviews 2014 bikecatI came on the bike tour with equal amounts of excitement and nerves since I had only about 6 months of biking experience under my belt. From the very beginning Jaume, Debbie, and Jordi were amazing. They explained the course to me each morning and every ride was a great learning experience. From riding on cobblestone, drafting, climbing, descents, and a 17% grade short climb on the last day….the week was AMAZING!! As a novice rider this was the best “biking immersion training” I could have ever asked for. The stunning scenery made all the hard work absolutely worth it. My boyfriend and I still talk about the trip and are making plans to come back!

reviews 2014 bikecatThese 3 days were just amazing!! I felt I took a step out of time for 72 hours. Everything you did and prepared for us was just so great, really! You two and your team are all on the same great wave, and that makes everything so smooth, like being on a permanent flow … 

I´m already looking forward to spending more time with you.

Please say hello to Bernat, Miquel and Jordi … 

All the best

reviews 2014 bikecatThanks Jaume and Bernat for an outstanding Transpirinaica bike tour!  I have done many bike tours over the years but none quite like Bikecat. You guys have definitely raised the bar.  The route selection, accommodations and meals were all incredible, and your meticulous attention to detail was much appreciated.  What a fantastic way to experience the local culture & cuisine.  I look forward to reconnecting with my new Girona friends in the not too distant future.  All the best!

reviews 2014 bikecatJaume, Debbie, Jordi and Bernat,

It is truly a gift to have the opportunity to explore your beautiful Catalonia with such wonderful people who share the joys of cycling, wonderful food and wine (and cervezas!) and most of all good friends!
The memories will sustain us until next time!!

Thanks for keeping us safe, and being such fabulous hosts!
Fins molt aviat!



reviews 2014 bikecatSoon after our return, a series of email exchanges occurred between us, stating what a wonderful time we had together and on Bikecat’s excellence in taking care of us.  Everyone wants to come back! Not only for the care, the beauty of your Catalonia, but more so returning to see and enjoy being with our friends there. We will always have you in our discussions on future trips. It will be difficult to pick other destinations and expect the same level of care you have provided these past two years. 

Until we meet again, thanks and be safe…

Warm regards,



reviews 2014 bikecatThank you Jaume!! The pictures are spectacular, thank you! We had the absolute best time thanks to you and your perfectly suited, custom rides that allowed us to experience Girona like a local Pro.

I will cherish the rides and the pictures.

Muchisimas Gracias y hasta la proxima!
