7 Days (Sat - Sat)
On this week-long trip, we’ll be touring the cycling training camps of Girona. Girona has always been an attractive area to explore by bike, and is a real hotspot for professional cyclists – over 80 live in the area!
This is the ultimate Girona cycling holiday. It’s classic Tour de France and Tour of Spain territory and offers the opportunity to ride the roads and emulate the Tour stars who have done battle here over the years.
Our cycling training camps in Girona are probably the best place in Europe to base your pre-season training. It’s perhaps not the first place you would think of for taking a bike for a bit of training over the colder months (although temperatures on the valley floors can get to 20°C even in the spring). Though, if you combine it with a bit of skiing which is not too for away, as a team building training camp there couldn’t be anywhere better.
Pro teams of the 80’s and 90’s regularly did just this – it’s a perfect way to introduce and integrate into a new team over the closed season before the serious business of training and racing gets underway.
