Base for hiking & road biking?

My husband and I have 12 days in Spain at the end of May. We fly in and out of Barcelona and will spend 3-4 days there. For the remaining days, we are looking for suggestions for 2 other towns or cities (possibly in or around the Pyrenees) that would be a good base for moderate to difficult self-guided road biking and hiking day trips. Any ideas? Thanks!

Kilmarnock, United...

Hi, if you look at the Vias Verdes (green routes) site, you may find a couple of routes you fancy trying, from there, you could work out some intersting base. My choice would be the Girona region in Catalunya and it offers a few routes of varying difficulty.

I have not idea about cycilng routes in Catalonia, but vies verdes could be a great idea...there are some btt centers in Catalonia that offers routes for cycling and tecnical support (but I never use it!!):


(is an official center! I supposed this coud be a garantee!) They have some centers in the pirinees!!

We are planning a similar trip to yours for this summer. A few days in Barcelona and then up in the mountains for some hikes. Could you tell me about your trip last year? What did you do? Where did you stay? What can you recommend?
