We tend to be pretty flexible on itinerary and try to offer multiple routes each day for all abilities.  Below is a sample of what to expect from the trip.

Day 1 – Arrive in Lloret de Mar.  Potential shake-down ride depending on arrival time

Day 2 – Check bikes,  Warm up ride to Girona where we stop for coffee in the famous La Fabrica or Federal Cafe’s.  Both owned by pro riders.  

Day 3  – Today we ride further inland where take on the famous El Angels climb and stop for coffee in Girona. Nicknamed ‘pro town’ due to the number of pro riders living there.  Potential pre-dinner QA session

Day 4 – The DPCC Epic.  Today we ride some classic roads from the Vuelta and take-on some of the large local climbs.  Potential pre-dinner QA session

Day 5 – A recovery ride for those wanting one or more climbs for those wanting to push on! Potential pre-dinner QA session.

Day 6 – After the day 5 recovery ride we mix things up to accommodate different training needs.  Some will want to go flatter others hit the hills for another epic.  We’ll present the routes and it up to you to decide.  The ride will finish in the city of Girona where we will spend the first of two nights.

Day 7 – Today we join up with our friends in Girona for the Girona Gala pro ride.  3 different distances to suit all abilities with famous faces from the UCI world tour in attendance.  In the evening we will attend the Girona Charity Gala.  An end of season dinner and party attended by local pro riders and famous faces from the world of cycling.  Don’t forget your dancing shoes! 

Day 8 – Departure day: It’s unfortunately time to return home or maybe one last short ride for those flying out later.

1:1 coaching sessions and bike fits can be booked between sessions or on days when you feel like something different.
