Girona to Barcelona by bike
Posted November 25th, 2012 - 8:23 pm by from Edmonton, Canada (Permalink)
Tomorrow we will be biking from Girona to Barcelona. We would like to avoid main highways if at all possible. I was hoping someone has done this trip before and is willing to share some useful tips?

I suggest you to go towards the sea. From Girona there is a green way called "El carrilet verd", just for bycicles. In Girona you can catch it by the shore of the river Onyar in the center. This way will bring you till Sant Feliu de Guíxols, already by the seaside. After that you'll need to take the road to Tossa de Mar (little trafic). It is a very beautiful 18Km road by the sea but it is full of ups and downs, but really worthy. Tossa de Mar is an amazing place, you'll like it.

After that you'll go to Lloret de Mar (will be the last hills and will be flat till BCN). Once you cross the river called TORDERA in Blanes, you can go by the beach path till Barcelona. Be aware that there are a few places where you'll need to continue by the paralel cars road.

Enjoy your trip
