After what we are sure you will think is one of the best cycling festivals in Europe, Love Velo will transfer you back to the airport.


The stunning medieval city of Girona is the jewel in northern Catalonia’s crown. From its gothic architecture to the shimmering River Onyar, this is a city that offers superb dining, cultural exploration and perfect base to ride through Catalonia or enjoy the Girona Festival of Cycling.


The weather in Girona makes it one of the reasons why so many professional riders base themselves here. The cycling season can begin as early as March and April which offer cool Spring riding. The summer is warm but not usually sweltering like some other Mediterranean destinations and the Autumn cycling season can last sometimes until late November.
