Pro Cyclists started coming to Girona in the late 90s because of the many fantastic roads in the region and the very good connections to the rest of Europe. This makes the town perfect for Professional cyclists who live here and rely on the infrastructure and the large cycling community—fantastic!
However, what is ideal for a Pro-Cyclist is less than ideal for a hobby cyclists. There is a lot of traffic in and around the town of Girona, the main highway connecting Spain to northern Europe runs next to the town and the town is almost entirely surrounded by hills. For Pros these are less of a problem than for hobby cyclists who are here to enjoy a great vacation.
The Pro-Cycling community in Girona is fascinating to see and experience.
We love it and we highly recommend visiting the town while you are here!
If “seeing and being seen” is your priority, Girona the town is the place to be.
If cycling on great roads is your priority, we recommend coming to the Empordà part of Girona.
We offer hub-spoke cycling packages – Stay in one hotel and cycle around the region. Your perfect Cycling Vacations begins here – with the right choice of hotel, a wide selection of wonderful routes, and a personalized mix of additonal services.
We will answer within 48 hours with an offer.

We are deeply connected to cycling in the region of Girona. Dirk came here by bike for the first time in 1988 and immedialty fell in love with the perfect cycling conditions. As often as possible, he would try to come back for cycling, before moving to the region in 2003 and starting Canigou Cycling.
Canigou Cycling always prioritized the recreational and travelers perspective on cycling. At the time famous cyclist like Lance Armstrong, Tyler Hamilton and George Hincapie were living in Girona. One thing was clear for Dirk from day one: Canigou Cycling will not offer tours to cyclists who are only looking to be close to the Pro-Cyclists here. Our tours prioritize what really matters to passionate hobby cyclsist: great roads, authentic hotels and a friendly, heartfelt experience.
Of course we foster good connections with the pro-community in Girona. For instance Canigou Cycling organized launch events for Cervélo in Girona. Dirk also works as Associate Professor for Innovation in Tourism at the University of Girona.
