Worth hiring bokes in Estartit???

Hi there, this is our return trip to Estarit, we were here last year with our little boy who was 2 at the time. We had a great holiday in Castell Montgri and are back for more. We were thinking of maybe hiring bokes for a bit while we are there - my husband cycles a bit whereas I like to cycle but not if its very hilly

Is is a nice place to take a bike ride? safe? hilly? etc

Thanks in advance :)

Terrible for cyclists. Car drivers are maniacs.

Cycling is safer than the UK - Spanish drivers are generally less aggressive and take more notice of bikes and give a wider berth (by law it's 1.5m) and there are lots of quiet tracks and backroutes so lots of people cycle round here.

The Massis de Montgri at the back is obviously pretty hilly but from L'Estartit to Torroella and down to Pals is flat and easy cycling with cycle paths/tracks off the main road. The only problem is crossing the river Ter which means going all the way to Torroella to find the bridge.

We've always enjoyed cycling the back roads up to Toroella, lovely, probably a little more relaxing than trying to cycle up the main road...

But that said, it is interesting to note many of the worlds professional cycling teams and riders base themselves in Girona, as they regard the road cycling (albeit their choice of routes would be a little more hardcore than my own) to be amongst the finest in the world for training!
