Navigating in the Girona area is pretty difficult as it is gifted with so many roads and trails that it’s easy to get lost or miss the best places.
So, as charming the area can be, the best way to really enjoy your trip is letting a local guide lead you into the amazingness of Girona and its surroundings.
A good guide will be able to make your dream trip real, doesn’t matter if you are thinking about riding towards the beach on roads with breathtaking sea views or doing a training and more challenging ride towards the mountains, you need Josep!!

I would recommend Bike breaks to anyone wishing to tour Girona and surrounding area. They are a professional team of enthusiasts and really do think of everything. . We all had varying abilities but our Guide Josep went above and beyond to make sure our cycling experience suited everyone. A really lovely guy and a pleasure to hear his stories over a well earned beer after a long day in the saddle.
The ladies in the main shop are very experienced and nothing is to much bother. Very friendly.
They have just opened a new clothing shop.
The rental bikes are very high spec.
We had an absolutely incredible experience on the Medieval Villages tour with Josep! He ensured the ride was at the perfect level for two (very) amateur cyclists—challenging enough to feel like a significant accomplishment by the end of the trip, but manageable, enjoyable, and safe the whole way through.
The villages of the Girona countryside are truly a sight to see. Straight out of a fairy tale, with winding cobblestone roads, castles, and old farmhouses dotting the hills. Josep seemed to know the history of every square meter of land we passed, and his stories complemented the beautiful scenery perfectly. All in all, an experience we will never forget!
