Many WorldTour pros have made the Catalan province of Girona their home, lured by the mild Mediterranean climate, the climbs of the Pyrenees and the rolling roads down to the Costa Brava. From ex pro. Juan Antonio Flecha to "Purito" Rodriguez, you find them on the local backroads. The routes have been designed to showcase the best of the region’s riding, the incredible mountain views, the cuisine and wines that Catalonia is famous for as well as comfortable hotels. So relax and enjoy the ride!

Guido Ophelders

Hi, I am Dutch and live in Spain for over 25 years. For the the first 20 years I persued a career as economist in Barcelona and now I am living my dream in the Pyrenees, in the little village of Greixer at 1.350 m. with stunning views over La Cerdanya, one of the largest and sunnies valleys in Europe, just 150km. from Barcelona and the place where the locals go to spend their holidays.

I started cycling in the hills near Maastricht, scene of the classic Amstel Gold Race.

My mission is to let bike enthusiast discover and enjoy the Pyrenees on the bike by sharing the passion for cycling, nature, good food & wine.

Nowadays my CV looks like this 🙂 :
