BikerideCostaBrava is a long 313-km route planned to be completed in 4, 5, 6, or 7 days according to everybody’s preferences.
The route, which starts and ends in Mataró, is divided into three parts:
BikeRide Costa Brava
► A very mountainous part with narrow roads, some paths and spectacular landscapes which goes through the Montseny Natural Park (World Biosphere Reserve);
► A softer one, with good low sloped roads, which passes through Girona and Baix Empordà, with their medieval villages;
► A third part which runs along the coast, from Tamariu to Mataró, going through caves, fishing villages, beaches and small hills.
► The city of Girona is a well-known spot for cyclists all around the world for many years.
Although the main starting point is in Mataró, you also have the chance to start from Girona in case you land at Girona airport.
You may also complete just some of the stages, the ones you prefer, without having to finish the whole route. We recommend you the stages between Mataró and Girona if you are looking for a more alpine and mountainous route or the stages between Mataró and Tamariu if what you want is to enjoy the coast.
Level of difficulty
BikerideCostaBrava is a mid physical and technical difficulty level route. That is why, to be able to complete it easily and enjoy the landscape, you must be a little experienced and used to cycle on MTB.
The option to complete the route in seven days reduces the physical demand level and makes it suitable for nearly everyone who likes cycling on mountain bike. The 4-stage option increases its level of physical difficulty as it increases the number of kilometers per day.
Stages: 4, 5, 6 or 7 days.
