Short cycle-tourism routes from Girona

This website has some good ideas for cycling from Girona with GPS tracks and explanations. It is in English. They are short cyclo-tourism routes. Just be careful with the routes that go on 'tracks' as these are no good for road bikes - if you take a good map you'll find an alternative. Here is an example:


Nº 11

Girona – Sarrià de Ter – El Pont Major – Celrà – Sant Joan de Mollet – Flaçà – Sant Llorenç de les Arenes – Foixà – La Sala – Ultramort – Serra de Darò – Gualta – Torroella de Montgrí – L’Estartit

Description of the cycling route:
The cycling route that we propose from Girona to L’Estartit is quite different from the routes that we know as Greenways in our area (the ones from Girona to Olot and from Girona to Sant Feliu de Guíxols which follow the paths of the former railway line). These are real cycling routes that you can follow with no risk of getting lost and where you will only find cyclists and no other vehicles. Our route is composed by rural paths and tracks that can be linked to arrive at L’Estartit. There are no signposts! So that you will need a certain experience using maps and finding ways. A satnav can help you. The aventure starts!
As we said for the route from L’Estartit to Girona, the main attraction of this route is that it allows you to make quite a long journey using no main roads and finding no cars, cycling through landscapes and villages which can be quite interesting from a cultural point of view.
The route follows rural tracks, the quietest, the most direct and the most interesting that we have found. When you leave Girona, to avoid the traffic, you will follow a very funny path which starts at the sportscenter called Poliesportiu de Fontajau and ends at the dual carriageway of Sarrià de Ter near the furniture shop called Mobles Balti. We go on the pavement until we reach the so-called Pont Major (Main Bridge). From Pont Major to the next village of Celrà we will have to follow the main road which is always quite busy, however, as soon as we reach the industrial area of Celrà we will finally start cycling again on quiet tracks until the end of the route.
In the road-book you will find more information to follow the route.
