We can tailor make this trip for you
Day 1Arrival

Welcome to one of the coolest festivals of cycling in Europe. Arrive into Girona and Love Velo will transfer you to your hotel. You can jump on a group ride today if you arrive early enough.

Day 2The Nocturne

Join the morning group ride at 10am, spin your legs and get ready for this evening’s Nocturne. Tonight, cycle hard and fast around the medieval city of Girona. The race, held at dusk, is 10 laps of 2.5km each. There are not many opportunities to ride a nocturne event and this nocturne allows you to harness your inner Belgian with a timed uphill section on cobbles! When you’re finished, join the post race party and trade stories of what it is like to compete in a timed, organised after dark race.

Day 3Group Ride

Today you can again join the daily group ride and then join the pre race party if you fancy a night out, or catch some zzzz before tomorrow’s granfondo.

Day 4Girona Granfondo

Today is the main event, the Girona Gran Fondo. 125km with a gain of 1700m, this is not for the feint hearted. The route is breathtaking guiding cyclists on a ride through the Garrotxa Volcanic region with plenty of feed stations and support along the route.

Day 5Departure

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.
