Six perfect (coffee) rides from Girona

Specialty coffee, cakes, and mid-ride stops serve as excellent motivators to get out there and ride your bike. Catalonia offers a plethora of enticing options that provide plenty of motivation to ride every day.

Nafent has curated three routes, on the road and on gravel, each spanning 100 kilometers. These routes start and finish in Girona, leading you to destinations that are perfect for a refreshing coffee break – or more. Each route showcases distinct scenery and fantastic opportunities to recharge batte-ries halfway through your ride.

Moreover, upon returning to town, we have selected three ideal options for indulging in a post-ride snack, coffee, or meal. These choices ensure a perfect conclusion to your cycling adventure.

So, without further ado, let’s delve into the details.
