Cycling and greenways

El plaer d'assaborir la ruta al teu ritme

Photographer Álvaro Sanz

The curtain rises to reveal a land of stunning natural scenery, with cyclists riding here and there, enjoying the feeling of freedom the Costa Brava and Girona Pyrenees provide. Riding at your own pace, in safety, discovering, with each rise and fall of the pedals, a unique area that appears to have been specifically designed to be enjoyed by bicycle. It’s a great image, all that’s missing is you.

Cycling the greenways is a favourite pastime for both Girona locals and the many visitors who come here to enjoy cycling in its purest form. With more than 160 km of gently sloping trails that trace former railway lines, the greenways are ideal for connecting with the natural landscapes and 30 towns that can be found along the way, without any need to worry about traffic. This makes them a popular choice for the many families, groups of friends and solo cyclists who enjoy cycling, running and walking them.

The emblematic Pirinexus route invites you to travel further afield, linking numerous sections of greenways with other cycling paths – some more physically demanding – in a circular route of over 350 km that connects the Girona province with the Vallespir and Rosselló regions.

And make your cycling adventures even more memorable by taking a welcome break to enjoy some of the local cuisine or discover some of the region’s unmissable cultural treasures. And don’t hesitate to tap into the advice and guidance on offer from the region’s specialist cycling tour companies, who will be able to design you a tailor-made route and cover any need you might have (accommodation, restaurants, rentals, transfers, workshops, etc).
