Cycling Vacation Outfitter Captures Popularity of Gravel Biking In Spanish Countryside
Madison, WI – – October 1, 2019 – –Trek Travel, a leading active vacation tour operator specializing in bicycling vacations, debuts a new Girona Gravel Ride Camp Bike Tour that captures the popularity of this trending fitness movement set amidst the scenic Spanish countryside.
Guests will ride along old dirt roads in beautiful regions between the Mediteranean Sea and the Pyrenees, visit cycling-themed cafes and explore Girona’s historic architecture.
“Girona is a cycling mecca that many pros call home,” says Trek Travel President Tania Burke. “It features some of the country’s best off-road riding and our team has put together an amazing gravel ride experience that blends a beautiful setting with endurance-testing pedaling.”
Gravel biking is an increasingly popular sport that combines elements of road and mountain biking on unpaved roads such as old wagon trails, forest roads, canal paths, and anything else beyond a paved trail.
It allows participants to test their endurance on mixed terrain as a group in a more leisurely, scenic way.
Trek Travel guests are equipped with a Trek Domane SL 7 Disc – Gravel Trip Edition Bike that features disc brakes, clearance for the wider, Bontrager GR1 Team Issue gravel tires, front and rear IsoSpeed.
The avid Level-4 trip includes cycling a variation of mountainous climbs and descents to rolling coastal riding and a variety of surfaces from smooth gravel to chunky, rugged mountain roads.
Off-bike, guests will enjoy a Catalan wine-tasting at a local vineyard, dine on traditional tapas and lounge at the modern Hotel Nord 1901.
Trek Travel’s Girona Gravel Ride Camp Bike Tour is a five-day, four-night adventure, priced from $1,799 per person. It will be offered from November 3 – 7, 10 – 14, 17 – 21, 24 – 28, and December 1 – 5, 2019.
