When's a good time to visit?
There's always a good time to go, though April through to
October typical provide the warmest weather, with highs of
30-degrees in July and August, and reaching 15-degrees in late
spring and early autumn. Rainfall is relatively light year-round,
but as with most parts of Europe, it can rain - I spent two days in
February riding through torrential rain, so always pack an
emergency jacket just in case. Best to be prepared.
If you want to take part in some local cycling events, then
visit during 11-17th June for the Girona Cycling Festival. It's
billed as the perfect opportunity to explore the area and includes
Gran Fondo, with a choice of 125 and 142.6km distances. There's
also a cheeky 10.4km Hill Climb event up the famous local climb Els
Angels, and rounding things up is a Nocturne Twilight
Where to stay?
There's lots of choice to suit all budgets in Girona, and
because of its small size, you can locate yourself in the city so
you are close to all the restaurants and cafes. From Airbnb to lots
of bike-friendly hotels, including Casa Cundaro (seen below), Hotel
Historic, Hotel Llegendes and Mas Pelegr, there's no shortage of
good places to base yourself for a long weekend or week stay. The
Llegendes also provides rental bikes, as does Service Course, so
you don't even have to take your own bike if you prefer to travel
