MTB singletrack paradise Girona

Girona is a true mountain bike paradise and accessible to all levels. Directly from the city of Girona you have all types of routes: from very technical single tracks to beautiful wide gravel paths. Anne Tauber (Dutch MTB champion) trained with us and called the area ideal for training for World Cups because the terrain in the vicinity of Girona resembles the World Cup course: technical, rocks, not too long climbs, pieces with soft surfaces and different types of landscapes in a small radius.

But there are also plenty of routes for the less experienced and even for the novice mountain biker. Then we start with not too crazy routes and build on them in the following days to become increasingly challenging. If you prefer to stay on the wider gravel paths every day, that is also possible, because there are many options for this too.

Girona is known worldwide for its cycling routes, but strangely enough, Girona is even more impressive for its mountain bike routes. You cycle out of the historic center and without a single motorway you are immediately in an area with countless MTB tracks. You can tackle long climbs in the Rocacorba area, you can keep it flatter if you cycle south. The “World Cup” course is located North-East of the city in the Els Angels and Sant Miquel area. Dry coastal landscapes with rocks and sand towards the coast.

Mountain biking is a very popular sport among Catalans (many times more popular than cycling). Every village has its MTB club. And almost every Sunday an MTB Marathon, Gran Fondo or competition is organized. We often use the routes of recent competitions, so we know that the paths are well maintained. Our coach/guide also regularly participates in these competitions and keeps a close eye on the entire circuit and has many contacts in the Girona MTB world.

Once a year we organize a Theme Week that everyone can join (if there are differences in level we split the group), namely our Girona MTB Challenge week. This is all about the 3-day single track marathon competition. A very well-organized race that offers a challenge for mountain bikers, but at the same time is still doable for the less experienced mountain biker (whom we brush up on technique in the Spanish mountains in the days before).

The rest of the year, mountain bike groups are welcome to come and train with us and/or participate in events in the area. Send us an email to for a no-obligation quote to come mountain biking with us with your club or group of friends.

Paul Kneppers is the coach during the rides. He has a lot of experience in mountain biking, still regularly competes and finishes at the front. And he knows the Girona area like the back of his hand. The landscape is constantly changing, causing trails to disappear or new ones to be added (if one of the many mountain bike clubs has created a new trail). Paul rides his mountain bike at least once a week and always stays informed about the status of the trails. We often make a program in advance, but during the week we can be flexible with this.

Come see it for yourself, you won’t regret it!
