Welcome to your new home base for cycling! Girona has long been known for its incredible road riding, but after a week of riding on its gravel roads, you're bound to think of it in a whole new way. Upon arrival and check-in at the hotel, you'll meet your Trek Travel guides to get fit to your Trek Domane, expertly prepared for gravel riding, and install any saddles or other equipment you brought for your trip. During the bike fit enjoy a casual Trek Travel picnic, prepared by your guides to make sure you have all you need before embarking on your first adventure for the week. Let's ride! Today's route is a beautiful introduction to the gravel paths in and around Girona. You'll enjoy gradual climbs along the Riu Ter (Ter river) and return through the town of Saint Gregori.

Before and After Your Trip


Before: Girona, Spain

Girona has long enjoyed the reputation for being the richest town in Spain. Founded in the first century BC, it soon became the most important point on the Spanish Via Augusta. Enjoy the reflections of the colorful pastel row houses on the River Onyar before crossing the river and wandering the narrow cobblestone streets of the medieval Jewish quarter. Admire the cathedral from below and then enjoy a 15-minute walk atop the old town walls to get great views of the town.Search out our favourite café, La Fabrica in the old quarter, where local and professional cyclists training in Girona sometimes stop for coffee. We recommend the following accommodations for your post-trip hotel:


After: Barcelona, Spain

The Catalonian capital of Barcelona boasts a beautiful coastline; a great diversity of culture, leisure, and shopping; creative, innovative gastronomy; and an avant-garde spirit. Be sure to check out some of the fantastic architecture and art of Antonio Gaudí, such as Sagrada Familia or Parc Guell. The Gothic quarter is the heart of Barcelona’s old town, with narrow cobblestone streets on which Picasso and Miró lived long ago. Las Ramblas is a long tree-lined shoppers’ paradise that leads to the sea. Be sure not to miss the fascinating Boqueria market for a slice of local life. We recommend the following accommodations for your pre-trip hotel:
