RIDING THE AREA.

Once you arrive, it's apparent what lures many pro-cyclists to settle in this beautiful part of the world. Sites is nestled in between the mountainous Garraf natural park and the Cava wine country of El Penedes (aka the "Tuscany of Spain"). This means a wide variety of terrain greets cyclists, be it long steady climbs or short and sharp hills via some rolling flats overlooking the sea. 

 

about the area.

Once you arrive, it's apparent what lures many pro cyclists to settle in this beautiful part of the world called Catalunya. Sitges is nestled in between the natural park of the Garraf mountains and the Cava wine country of El Penedès (aka the "Tuscany of Spain"). This means a wide variety of terrain is available to cyclists, be it long steady climbs or short and sharp hills overlooking the sea. The quality of the roads are outstanding and many are away from cars, making this area a true cyclist's playground.

RIDE WITH US.

Every morning we organise a group ride led by our experienced guide exploring the best roads, climbs and café stops of the area. Depending upon the level of the group these will vary in length and difficulty. For those preferring to head out separately, we've put together a booklet with all the best riding featuring which local cafés you should stop at as well as all the corresponding GPS files. We also offer road side assistance for everyone at the retreat. If the inevitable mechanical happens we'll happily come out and rescue you.

THE WEATHER.

Ask any local in Sitges about the weather and they'll inevitably brag about our microclimate. With an average of 300 days of sunshine per year and mild winters, Sitges makes for a perfect off-season training camp location. Even during the colder months of January and February the weather is usually mild. Despite this, do bring warm riding kit.
