A pinch, punch and some pedalling to celebrate the arrival of June today! Thanks everyone for joining us on this morning´s shop ride – it was a beautiful day to kick start the new month! Welcome to those visiting Girona – you´ve picked a great time to come 🙂 We had a perfect ride and nicely finished off at Federal cafe for a much needed refuel. Cheers all.
Girona has certainly been turning it on in preparation for summer these past few weeks and has us spending as much time possible out riding our bikes. When not out out spinning, we´ve been busy preparing for the very fast approaching Girona Cycling Festival, kicking off June 12!
Each day the excitement builds as final preparations are well underway. If you´re not participating, please feel free to still come along for the festivities and cheer on our riders. The more the merrier!
The events take off late morning June 13, with the Els Àngels Hill climb (up hill time trial), followed by the Nocturn twilight criterium late June 15 & conclude with our spectacle event, the Girona Gran Fondo. This year, we have an additional challenge for the brave on Fondo day, extending the course to include the infamous Rocacorba climb. This is an extra challenge and will not be compulsory to Gran Fondo particpants, however, we are confident there will be plenty of contenders! It is an iconic Girona climb and famous for it´s brutal nature…so, a bit of time in the pain cave but well worth it for the exhileration and views a top!
The week isn´t just about our events as we fill each day with social parties, dinners and group rides to keep our Festival goers busy and give them the opportunity to experience Girona, the culture and mingle with competitors.
It´s going to be a great week & we hope to see some of you there 🙂
Gràcies, thanks & see you soon!
