Thursday 3rd October - Day 1:
After arriving at Reus Airport you will be met by one of our
guides in the arrivals hall. The hotel is just a 20-minute transfer
At the hotel you will be reunited with your bike that will have
been driven down for you.
A couple of hours for a nice lunch, time to settle in and fettle
your bike, and then we will test the legs by taking on the area's
famous climb of La Mussara. 10km at 6.2%.
Friday 4th October - Day 2: La Morera de
- Distance: 100km
- Elevation: 1800m
La Morera de Montsant loop is a good day in the saddle, you
climb 20km uphill to begin with, at a steady 4%, before dropping
down, in to and out of two further valleys.
The last valley you enter feels like a step back in time, and we
will stop in Escaladei for coffee to steady ourselves for the next
climb. The climb is hard with ramps of 15% for 3km. Roughly
translated from Catalan the climb's name means steps of god, and
the climb will have even non-believers praying for the top.
All that is left is a big descent from here, one final easy
climb, and then a fast downhill to the hotel.

holm oaks and maples, into the hills forested with Aleppo pines.
Deserted roads and twisty climbs and descents await us.
The serried limestone hills, monasteries, prestigious family
wineries and a network of winding mountain roads will delight.
