My husband and i are planning a 6 day bike trip around costa brava , self guided. We would like to get some suggestions of places not to miss in this area. We were thinking of starting in Girona and making a large loop up to Besalu , Roses and then down the coast . Need suggestions of places not to miss and great places to stay. any other input on bike companies or trips would be super. Thanks, Jane

Hi,

There is a wonderful bike track that has been made from an old railway line, that runs from St Feliu de Guixols on the coast (very authentic fishing town) through to Gerona then up to Olot and then Ripoll in the mountains.These paths are very safe and most villages you pass through use the old train station as a cafe or information point for cyclists.We sometimes just book our accom as we cycle fron these info places, and as a family of 5 we have never had any problems right through the summer.We also have our stops at the public swimming pools on the way, so welcome when you are cycling in the summer.Besalu is a lovely place, everyone is right, there is just so much choice for cyclists of all standards in this area!
