What a beautiful day to ride bikes…
It has been a little chillier than expected this past week in Girona and we aren´t quite ready to layer up out riding, so when the sun was bright and warm this morning, we rocked up extra keen to ride and make it a good one!
Another fantastic turnout – thank you to all for joining us. September has certainly been a social one for cycling and it´s shown as we have more visiting riders join us each week on our shop ride and Social September calendar group rides.
The ride started out steady, as always with a friendly sprint prior to our essential coffee stop 🙂 . Our ´Selfie Queens´, Saskia and Anna had a few laughs here and decided to run a bit of a selfie competition…photo´s are in the ride album below. You be the judge!
From there, we split into groups of varying distances. Those who opted for the longer option had an especially nice ride, heading across to the stunning Lake Banyoles. A lot of fun was had and highlight of the ride would have to be the ´bike swap´ of our smallest rider Flavia with the tallest, Jeroen. Safe to say, she didn´t go too far!
It has been a pleasure having Flavia join us these past few weeks as she continues to progress and recover following a nasty cycling accident earlier year. Flavia is a professional female, Girona based cyclist from Brazil and last year, finished 7th in the Rio Olympic road race. Fantastic to see her back fighting on the bike and we wish her all the best with her come back!
On other news, we have a very busy October coming up with plenty of cycling tours, guided rides and bikes booked in. September/October in Girona is usually the perfect cycling period, weather wise and is often that bit quieter. If you are interested or have friends that are interested in popping across for some more cycling, check out our website to see what sort of packages we offer.
We also specialise in creating cycling trips to suit our visitors needs and preferences. Rides, accommodation, dining – you name it.
There are still several places remaining for our Autumn Girona guided tour, October 16-22. Be in touch to reserve your spot and find out more, via email – [email protected]

That´s all for now team. Thanks again and until next time!
