Long established as the ultimate road cycling destination, Girona has hidden treasure for gravel and MTB riders seeking the ultimate routes and memorable off-road experiences. It offers you and your group a huge network of traffic-free dirt and gravel roads, a stunning variety of singletrack trails and all within a couple of minutes of a breath-taking city. Few locations can have you off-road just a few hundred meters from riverside cafes and bars. The routes cater for riders at all levels from those new to gravel to those looking for sweet singletrack or technical rocky descents. Gravel guiding in Girona is in its infancy and whether you want to ride to the beach or ride like a beast, Grit | Girona is the best guide you’ll find.
Grit | Girona has all of your trip covered from bike rental to accommodation through our partners, and in addition offers riding technique tuition and fitness coaching.
Dave Smith, founder of Grit | Girona, has coached world champion downhill MTB racers, Olympic medallists in MTB cross country, numerous cyclo-cross national champions and grand tour stage winners and leaders jersey holders. His knowledge of the trails and dirt roads around Girona is encyclopedic having committed hundreds of hours to getting lost and found, going far and away, and above and beyond. Dave doesn’t guide by following other people’s gpx routes, but from hours of solo exploration, often successfully finding trails to avoid in future!
His knowledge extends to the best coffee and ‘boc stops’ (lunch) in rural areas, where to find drinking water, and even where to swim after those dreamy long hot summer rides.
