ur 2 week family holiday was in Catalonia this year (Begur) and I wanted to have one or two days during that holiday where I could nip off for the day and go mountain biking. In the past I had just hired a bike as there are a lot of dedicated mtb trails but what i found was that they were basically fire roads which wer a slog up (not a problem in itself)but boring coming down.
So this time I booked up Creative Catalonia as I knew that Daniel would know all the sweet singletrack which he did. The riding was great. A little technical in some places but nothing worse that anything that you would find on a "red trail" on a UK trail centre. I went at the end of July so I would be lying if I said it wasn't hot on some of the climbs but we went a my pace and it was fine. There was also a nice,well times restaurant lunch break. I had hired the full suspension bike (a All Mountain Canyon Nerve with 140 of travel which was very capable bike. I would recommend this trip for any mtb'er who wants a similar experience

We had a wonderful chance to see the beauty of Catalonia up close and personal with Daniel as our daily guide, leading us down the well marked bike paths into fantastic beach towns and then charming, meandering medieval villages that seem newly scrubbed but for the dates of 1691 or 1792, etc. etched in stone over ancient doorways. Having lunches and afternoon caffe latte breaks with Daniel gave us a chance to discuss what we saw, digest the history, and learn the local culture of changes in Spain. We enjoyed each hotel and had plenty of time to enjoy wonderful fresh food. We were so happy we experienced Catalonia with Daniel and Lucy and their Creative Catalonia biking holidays.

Our first trip to Spain and Catalonia provided wonderful memories, and hopes for returning. Creative Catalonia provided the best service and accommodations that we have ever experienced on self-guided cycling holidays. Lucy and Daniel's attention to details was fantastic. The hotels were wonderful, and the cycling routes were easy to follow. We have done several cycling holidays, and this company provided the best service we have ever received. We would love to do another trip, and hope to cross paths with Lucy and Daniel again. And we strongly recommend cycling to Tossa del Mar - fantastic!!!

We were a bit nervous as this was our first self guided bike trip although we ride bikes quite a bit at home. But not to worry as Daniel set us at ease with his excellent trip mapping and GPS included! All hotels and trips were more than expected but be aware that self guiding does require more or less continuous attention to navigation and awareness of surroundings. If you are comfortable with this then stick with a guide...I am sure Daniel would be an excellent one. The local food was also a delightful surprise.

The Creative Catalonia Bike Holiday was my first bike tour and my first time traveling outside the USA...the entire experince was fabulous! Our guide was wonderful, he knew everything there was to know about the trails and our sorroundings AND he made us feel very comfortable and safe throughout our journey. Their equipment was first rate. They take a lot of pride in keeping their gear in top conditions. The food choices/resturants were outstanding! We tried all the traditional dishes and some of their delicacies. Nothing wrong with ending every day with a little celebratory Sangria. The hotels/accomatdations were first class! Thanks so much for a vacation of a life time!
