CATALONIA, THE CYCLING PARADISE OF SOUTHERN EUROPE

Catalonia is embraced by the Mediterranean and crowned by the peaks of the Pyrenees; from north to south and east to west it offers an extraordinary geographical diversity. In one country, Catalonia combines high mountain areas and highlands, plains and the coast. Never-ending mountain ranges skirt the coastline, fertile depressions spread peacefully inland and vibrant mountain passes adapt to the most demanding goals and challenges.

Kilometres and kilometres of quiet roads for riding without stopping, linking impressive Pyrenean areas with the coast, in just over 100 kilometres.

These disparate and unusual orographic features in the same territory have turned Catalonia into the cycling paradise of Southern Europe and the favourite destination of keen bike lovers. No wonder professionals of the best teams in the world live and train here, not to mention the numerous amateurs and bicycle tourists who visit us year after year. Are you going to let them tell you about it?

AN IDEAL DESTINATION FOR CYCLING FANS: 365 DAYS A YEAR

A true Mediterranean soul, in spirit and in the climate. Catalonia offers cyclists the possibility to ride non-stop, 365 days a year. This is another of our great assets: an excellent climate with mild temperatures in winter, endless summers and low rainfall.

Its latitudinal position, its strategic position between two seas and two continents, as well as the land’s huge geographical variety turn Catalonia into a country with a unique climate mosaic.

Few areas of the same size are able to offer such a wide range of temperatures, a peculiarity that means we can enjoy the country all year long and offer tours from January to December, depending on the season and taking advantage of the different climate and topographic areas that coexist in Catalonia. The weather accompanies us. How about you?

The Costa Brava is a matchless backdrop with its coastline of beaches and idyllic coves, where cyclists can have a refreshing dip after their hard work, discover the old fishing villages of Cadaqués and Calella de Palafrugell, or follow the brilliant artistic footprint of the famous artist Salvador Dalí in Figueres.
