It's all fresh tarmac and stunning views on cycle tours along the Mediterranean and in the Spanish Pyrenees


Riding your bike in Catalonia is an experience of a lifetime

After much deliberation, we’ve decided that Catalonia is the planet’s equivalent of the greatest place to ride and experience cycling tours, not just because epico was born in Catalonia….

Nothing about this magical region makes you want to fast forward or skip ahead. Every town, landscape, and ancient structure is a smashing success. In fact, we’re so taken with Catalonia’s unlimited riding appeal that we’re beginning to suspect it’s an acronym for Cyclists Are Touring…

Cycling tours with landscapes filled with incredible attractions

It is a region in north-eastern Spain with diverse terrain making it the closest thing to geographic schizophrenia you’ll ever experience on a bike tour. You can be standing atop a snow-dusted peak in the Pyrenees Mountains in less than two hours and then swimming in a secluded, sun-flooded cove along Catalonia’s famed Mediterranean coast. In between, rolling plains, vineyards, and olive orchards are interspersed with rural villages steeped in mediaeval history.

Catalonia has emerged as a favourite training ground for the world’s best cyclists. Catalonia not only has diverse terrain, but it also has a diverse culture. Many architectural wonders in Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter are World Heritage Sites. The Montserrat Monastery, perched atop a rock pinnacle at 2,380 feet, is said to be where the Holy Grail was first discovered. And Figueres, Salvador Dali’s birthplace, honours his artistic legacy with the Teatre-Museu-Dali.
