Is this tour for me?

The Classic Ports of Girona is a tour designed for people who like to ride time after time, experiencing long and beautiful days on the bike.

On our supported tours we like to keep everyone together on the flats and save energy for the key climbs of the day. We invite participants to climb each climb at their own pace and regroup at the top.

Above all, we are flexible. Our detailed knowledge of the area allows our team of guides to adapt to your group: sometimes clients want to go further and look for more challenges and sometimes they want to slow things down. Just tell your guides how you feel and they will accomodate you to make sure you have the best possible time on your trip.

If you need a break, the support vehicle is never far away.
