ROUTE

All rides listed below are suggestions and not set.  There are a wide selection of both road and gravel routes for us to choose from. The below will give you a taste of what’s on offer.

A challenging training route frequented by the pros, climbing up to Santuari dels Àngels – a historical chapel at 500m in the midst of a natural environment in the massif of Les Gavarres, with spectacular views of the Pla de Girona plains, the Costa Brava, the Pyrenees and Montseny mountain range.

A rolling, steady gravel loop heading west from Girona. Nice and easy to spin out the legs after travelling.

No major climbs, just a gentle loop, stopping for coffee in the quiet village of Canet d’Adri.

The Basso Route. A nice flat, steady start with all the climbing in the latter part of the ride.

Coast ride with lunch in St Feliu de Guixols. This includes the San Grau climb, with coffee at the Monastery, before dropping down to the beautiful coast road.

As ridden on the Traka Girona 2019. Some punchy climbs but nothing too technical!

The Gran Fondo Llorret Costa Brava is the only cycling tour where you can feel the breeze of the Mediterranean Sea in the morning and take on spectacular hills and mountain passes in the afternoon! Registration for the Gran Fondo is optional. There will be a supported road ride available for those who do not wish to join the Gran Fondo.

A gravel “out and back” to the coast. Pretty flat, but absolutely beautiful.

Finish the week with a bang! We’ll head out to Lake Banyoles for coffee, via the infamous Rocacorba!

Another lumpy route courtesy of 2019’s Traka Girona route. Packing 1000m of climbing into 50km, we promise, the views will be worth it.

ITINERARY

All rides listed below are suggestions and not set.  There are a wide selection of both road and gravel routes for us to choose from. The below will give you a taste of what’s on offer.

We recommend aiming to arrive mid-afternoon, leaving plenty of time to build your bike or collect one if you’re renting. There will be a leg loosener in the early evening. From experience (!) most members will congregate in the hotel bar from 19:30, before dinner at leisure.

Meet at 09:00 to roll at 09:30 for either road or gravel ride of the day! We’ll have a coffee stop and will be back in Girona for lunchtime. Pre-dinner drinks are encouraged in the hotel bar from 19:30 before dinner at leisure.

Meet at 09:00 to roll at 09:30 for either road or gravel ride of the day! We’ll have a coffee stop and lunch. There is an optional Vineyard tour at 16:00 which can be booked at registration. Pre-dinner drinks are encouraged in the hotel bar from 19:30 before dinner at leisure.

Transport will depart for those riding the Grand Fondo. For those not riding we’ll meet at our usual time of 09:00 to roll at 09:30 for either road or gravel ride of the day! We’ll have a coffee stop and be back in Girona for lunchtime. Pre-dinner drinks from 19:30 as always! Dinner at leisure.

Meet at 09:00 to roll at 09:30 for either road or gravel ride of the day! We’ll have a lunch stop mid point. Pre-dinner drinks in the hotel bar from 19:30 (but no doubt will start earlier tonight!) before dinner at leisure.

Meet at 08:00 for a short, final ride. We recommend booking return flights for around 17:00.

ACCOMMODATION

4* hotel

You’ll be staying in a 4* hotel in the heart of Girona with easy access to the historic old town, shops and cafes. Entry includes sharing a twin room with another rider unless you have selected to upgrade to a single room on registration.

FAQ

Jet2 has the most direct flights to Girona, with several departures a week from Manchester, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Belfast, Leeds, Newcastle, Birmingham, Stansted, and from East Midlands Airport.

Alternatively you can fly to Barcelona. From experience the simplest and most efficient way to get from Barcelona to Girona is by train, more info below.

Travelling from Barcelona to Girona by Train – with a bicycle!

The RENFE train service runs approximately every 30 minutes from Barcelona airport (Aeroport) to the city centre. Travel time approximately 25 minutes and costs approx. €4. Your destination is Barcelona Sants (otherwise known as Sants Estació) which is Barcelona’s Central Station. From here you can catch the train to Girona, which leave approximately every 40 mins and costs approx. €17.50 (Based on current prices).

If you are travelling with a bicycle (which no doubt you are!) you do not need to pay additional charges for the fare. However if your bike bag/box is larger than 120cm (length) x 90cm (height) then you may not be allowed on, so be sure to check the size of your luggage well in advance. The likelihood of securing a spot on the train for you and your bicycle is subject to available space, so it is advisable to travel during off peak times (10am – 3pm) as these will be quietest.

Our good friends at Bike Breaks have a great selection of both road and gravel bikes to hire and are located very close to the Rendezvous hotel. Don’t forget to ask for your HotChillee 10% discount!

Girona has many restaurants where you can enjoy a wide range of cuisines including Catalan, Basque, Mediterranean, Oriental, signature, fusion, market, vegetarian, and many more. Trip Advisor recommend.

There will be groups for both road and gravel each day with ride leaders, however we do recommend you bring a bike navigation device and gpx routes will be made available.

Yes for each ride we will have a local guide and / or a Hotchillee guide.

GLEN WHITTINGTON

Glen is usually behind the scenes making sure that the Hotchillee Ride Captains and event participants have fully functioning bicycles to ride but he occasionally makes an appearance in front of the camera to share his wisdom. If he’s not fixing or building bikes he’ll be out riding in #SweetSussex. If you want to know anything about Cyclocross, Glen is the man to ask.
