The World Tour road cycling season has almost come to a close for 2019. With that, many professionals are now well and truly into ‘off-season’ mode, relaxing and enjoying the humming town of Girona. Come November, they’ll mostly be jumping back onto the bike to begin preparation for 2020!
Here’s your chance to jump on board the pre-season training wagon with a pro and friends of the peloton this November 14-17th for a Long Weekend of epic riding and exploring the now cycling-mad city of Girona!
We recently had a chat to a few of our Girona based pro friends to hear what their favourite cycling-related parts about the now cycling Mecca are….
Here’s what ‘the pros’ have to say –
“The best part of riding a bike in Girona is the company, there is a great community of people on and off the bike getting amongst some of the best roads in Europe.” – George Bennett, Team Jumbo–Visma
“Off season/ November is my favorite month of the year in Girona – the weather is warm enough to enjoy the riding, but not too hot that it’s uncomfortable, the roads are quiet and peaceful and the town has a nice quiet local vibe to it!!” Shane Archbold, Bora–Hansgrohe
“The people that you ride with in Girona and the united cycling community here make it, paired with the incredible riding and countless options; from the beach, to the mountains and flat roads – it really has it all.” – Sam Bewley, Mitchelton-SCOTT
“The training options and weather in Girona are two of the big draw cards. With great year-round weather and very few wet days, it’s easy to take it for granted. There are so many great routes to choose from when out training that you could easily ride one of Girona’s best rated rides every day of the week. You have options for flatter rides or if you’re looking to challenge yourself a bit, you can head inland towards the Pyrenees and ride some of the many longer climbs. When you’re not out on your bike, the city has plenty of character and is rich in history. Fantastic food and wine, cobbled streets that are dotted with squares and the river Onyar, which is famous for the many brightly painted houses lining it.” – Michael Hepburn, Mitchelton-SCOTT
November is fast approaching, so now is our final call to get you on board for what will undoubtedly be a long weekend to rave home about. Take their word for it and join us for the Girona ride…
