The Tour de Pirinexus is a cycling challenge taking place for the second year running in 2018. Our Spring ride is between 16th-20th May 2018, and our Autumn ride is between 26th - 30th September 2018.
Based on the Pirinexus route, a dedicated cycling route through Spanish and French Catalonia, the event takes place over 3 days and aims to provide participants with the opportunity to challenge themselves yet enjoy the rewards of good food and wine throughout.
Looping between Spain and France over the shoulders of the Pyrenees, the Tour de Pirinexus is an arranged marriage of velo culture and viticulture. Starting in Girona, a cycling hub for over a quarter of pro Tour cyclists, the route will wend along the regions beautiful backroads, linking the villages, towns and wonderful wineries of the Empord and Girones region - two regions of Catalonia that are relatively unknown given their gastronomic, viticultural and olive oil producing heritage.
300km in total through an array of stunning mountain and rural landscapes, with the best of local Catalan wine and cuisine to match!
