la Vuelta España
August 29th - September 2nd
We are heading into the mountains and to the races!
Our origins are in bike racing–it’s our heritage, and we are excited to bring you our inaugural race experience with this year’s Vuelta España. Starting from Girona, we will head into the Pyrenees for a healthy dose of vertical meters. A couple of days in Puigcerdà for some serious elevation gain, then finally to Andorra to watch stage 9 of the Vuelta, with special VIP finish line access with our friends at Santini.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Climbing! There will be no shortage of vertical over our days of riding as we head out of Girona. We will spend two nights in Puigcerdà with a day of exploring some climbs just across the border in France. After this, we will ride though France and into Andorra from the north over the Port d’Envalira down to our hotel in Soldeu. A ride the morning of the stage will take us up the pros’ finishing climb so we can experience it first hand before catching them fly up it later that afternoon.
In Puigcerdà, we will stay at the beautiful Mas Sant Marc, an amazing boutique farm house surrounded by the nature of the Pyrenees. In Andorra we will spend our days in the town of Soldeu, high up at the Hotel Piolets with views over the summer ski hills.
Breakfasts and dinners will be included in the trip.
This trip is limited to 6 riders, so book quickly!
