Wednesday 14th June – Mare de Déu del Mont (139km)
A fantastic ride north out through rolling countryside to the climb of Mare de Déu del Mont which, at an average gradient of 4.9% over 18.5km, will provide a nice ‘warm up’ of the legs!
The segment for the climb:
After the climb, we can descend to Besalú or push on to Banyoles for a late lunch and a few beers before riding the final 30km to home.
Thursday 15th June – Vallter 2000 (108km)
A 45 min drive from the house to Olot, where we’ll park up.
The route comprises two key climbs – the warm-up of the Coll de Capsacosta, a mere 8km out of town…
…before a slow and shallow ascent takes us up to Setcases and the beginning of the main climb – the 12km ascent to Vallter 2000 ski resort…
Lunch in one of the towns on the descent before heading down the mesmerising turns of the Vall del Bac and then back to Olot.
Friday 16th June – Tossa de Mar (94km)
A fairly easy day out to the coast, to keep everyone fresh for the Gran Fondo on the Saturday.
