Olot-Girona Cycle

Olot  - Girona Centre (60kms)
It takes 45 minutes to drive to Olot from Girona. Radikal bikeshop in Girona has one spare bike they hire out for 18€ a day. Nice road bikes can be found in Girona but not as yet in Olot. Gironalet.com Holiday Apartment offers a bike transport service for small quantities of bikes. Then cycle back to Girona (60kms) along the 'via verde' or green route, made from the old up-routed railway line. On road bikes it is probably better to follow the parallel road passing through Sant Esteve d'en Bas, Sant Feliu de Pallerols, Amer. Anglès.
Val d'en Bas (Olot) Cycle 
This is an idyllic valley to cycle. The valley itself is completely flat, but there are several hills around which add interest to the circuit. Starting from Olot, there is a 3km climb up 'La Cantina', then a descent onto the Riudaura road. From there we pass La Pinya, Sant Privat, Hostalets and arrive at Col d'Uria for a 4km climb (or more if you want!). You can continue up the beautiful mountain to el Far restaurant and Sanctuary. We then retrace our wheels. 
Return the bikes, then rest and recuperation. A stroll around the old town, a beer in the Plaça Constitució, where there is a pleasant breeze, then supper.
