Gravel Bonanza Summer Special
Jul

to Jul 14

Gravel Bonanza Summer Special

NOS VAMOS DE AVENTURA!

Verano: los largos días y las noches se disfrutan mejor con un paseo en bicicleta, seguido de una cerveza en la mano para ver la puesta de sol sobre las montañas.

Para aprovechar al máximo, decidimos hacer nuestro primer viaje nocturno para esta edición especial de Gravel Bonanza, reservando la hermosa y remota casa de El Bosquet, rodeada de nada más que naturaleza y montañas. 

Saldremos de Girona el sábado por la tarde para hacer una ruta de 80 km, con el coche de seguimiento donde podremos poner todo nuestro equipaje y artículos esenciales (¡cervezas!), Llegando sobre la tarde para relajarse y disfrutar de todo. Esa noche haremos una gran barbacoa.

El domingo por la mañana, después del desayuno y el café, comenzaremos nuestro viaje de regreso a Girona a través de una ruta alternativa.

 El alojamiento en la casa es limitado, con 6 camas aún disponibles...el que llegue primero se la adjudica!. Otros están invitados a acampar en el césped, tirar una colchoneta para dormir en el suelo de la casa o simplemente salir de fiesta toda la noche.

El precio del viaje con una cama es de 120 €, y 50 € si estas acampando.

Incluido:

  • Coche de apoyo para llevar bolsas a la ubicación durante la noche.

  • Café en TSC antes de salir.

  • Cena y cervezas en la casa (siéntase libre de traer su propia cerveza adicional si planea beber más de un par).

  • Domingo por la mañana desayuno y café.

  • Rutas GPX.

  • Fotografía profesional.

  • Guías durante la ruta.

Tienes que traer:

  • Equipo para acampar si planea acampar (hay espacio al aire libre para carpas, pero también espacio interior si prefiere una colchoneta con saco de dormir).

  • Cualquier alimento especial que pueda necesitar, por ejemplo, si es intolerante/alérgico al gluten.

Planteamiento:

  • Esto no es una carrera, sino un viaje de aventura autosuficiente para compartir algunas rutas de gravel impresionantes en compañía de grandes personas.

  • Tenga la ruta en su dispositivo GPS. Aunque generalmente terminamos montando en uno o dos grupos, no somos responsables de las personas perdidas y realmente no nos gustaría que eso suceda.

  • Por favor traiga repuestos para la bicicleta. Iremos a un área más remota, así que trae un par de cámaras, mancha, etc.

  • Esta es un área remota sin cobertura de teléfono móvil. Le informaremos cuál es el último punto en el que podrá enviar mensajes.

Boxing Day Three Loops Challenge.

.

We love to challenge ourselves here at The Service Course, so we decided that it would be a great idea to ride Girona´s three most popular routes in one single day!

We will start the challenge at 8:00am from the shop, with the classic Banyoles Loop (50.79km) before coming back through Girona at 10:00am to start the next loop. The Coast Loop is a stunning 119.89km ride out to Costa Brava before heading back inland through medieval villages on the way to Girona. The last and final loop will roll from at the shop at 3:00pm and takes in the well known Els Angels and Santa Pellaia climbs over 61.22km getting us back to town for between 5 and 5:30pm.

The ride can be divided into loops for those that may not have the whole day free and there will also be FREE COFFEE before each rollout!

Option 1 - 8am rollout for the Banyoles loop- 51km

Option 2 - 10am rollout from TSC for Coast Loop - 120km

Option 3 - 3pm rollout from TSC for the classic Hincappie - 62km

OR - Suck it up buttercup and roll all day! 232km and 3000 meters of vert!

Total 232 km

We added this fancy Bar Graph as well as some motivational music to get you pumped!

NB: This is a free ride but we’d love it if you can RSVP via our Facebook page, right HERE. Hope to see you there!
