Paul, Michael, James and Miguel did a fantastic job on this trip. The guest group was limited to 12 people. We had a great base hotel that included a full breakfast every morning. After Breakfast, we would leave the hotel for a gravel bike tour of the local area mid morning. The ride was will supported with two guides, 1 mechanic, and a SAG who would meet us roughly every 20 Km. Typically 4-5 hours of bike riding per day (with breaks), and the country side was amazing Typically ride 80-100 Km per day. The first and last day are shorter rides. The Dinners were top notch, even the "Casual Night" a respite from Formal dinners, was a great European restaurant sitting outside in the square taking in the local culture. Girona is a foodie and biking paradise! The bikes were cleaned and tuned every night, water bottles always full, there were options for laundry service. These folks thought of everything. While this is not a competitive ride, the riders were all competitive, so the pace was strong. Bring your "A" game and you will love this trip....I did.
Girona Gravel was an amazing adventure. Everything from start to finish was world class. The routes were challenging and spectacular. The food was outrageously delicious and the hotels were first class. Nothing like starting a new day with a great breakfast, a clean bike and an extraordinary adventure waiting. Michael, Paul and James are top notch. Can not wait to book another trip with Girona Velo...!!!
The gravel experience was one to remember. Paul and Chippy know how to curate a "wholistic" bike adventure...amazing routes, awesome food, top notch service and lots of fun! I felt like a pro for a week!
An Amazing week of Gravel! I'd say once in a lifetime but my wife has already given the go ahead for another trip back if you'll have us!
Thank you again for a super, wonderful gravel week in Girona. You totally exceeded our expectations. From food to rides to lodging to support. It was exceptional in every way!
Great riding, great accommodations and food, and wonderful people! I highly recommend this Italian mountains trip.
Italian mountains Trip - Greatest trip I've ever had! Hotels and meals are all taken care of and were excellent. But even better, the staff is just down to earth and able to make roll with the punches like changing weather, etc. They know how to pick a great mix of guests so that everyone gets along and has lots of fun together. Can't wait for the next trip!
Had the absolute best time with the Girona Velo team on our Pyrenees trip that started and ended in San Sebastian. The hotels, restaurant selection, cycling routes and most importantly the guides as well as mechanic support absolutely top notch. I would highly recommend Girona Velo for your next cycling vacation. 5 stars!
Bucket List Trip! There are very few experiences that leave a lasting impression on your life. My cycling trip with Girona Velo was one such experience. I had been thinking about riding some of the iconic climbs of Europe for many, many years but felt that a lot of the groups weren’t a great fit. I was fortunate to come across a small, boutique-feeling crew in Girona Velo run by a couple of cycling aficionados who not only know the prized climbs of Europe very well but who I also really like. Yes, the riding was phenomenal, the support amazing, but there was also a fun social aspect that I didn’t expect. Each day was capped with dinner, drinks and laughter. I forged new friendships and memories that I’ll hold dear forever. Thank you Girona Velo!
Pyrenees Experience - Girona Velo topped my list of the European tour companies. They did an excellent job of combining guests who make great company with the same riding skills. I was also impressed with how they worked their magic behind the scenes to make the trip feel seamless, even with unexpected surprises due to COVID. They were easy going and gave us flexibility, yet Chippy, Paul, and our wonderful tour guides genuinely cared that we had fun and made sure everything went smoothly. Thanks!
