#RideAlongSpain with (ex) pro Marijn de Vries No.1
Following three succesfull events in 2016, March and April we will host the 4th #RideAlongSpain in 2017, so close your eyes and imagine… riding one of the most beautiful roads you’ve ever seen. The sun on your face, the warm wind from the Mediterranean on your skin. The road is winding, up and down. Every minute you have a different, breathtaking view: small beaches, rough cliffs, flowers and forrest, the ocean.
This is the area where dozens of professional cyclists live and train; this is Girona, Catalunya. They didn’t just pick this place for training; pros always know where to find the most awesome roads, the best coffee and the loveliest places.
This trip is suited for all women who love cycling, from newbies to experienced riders. For almost a week you will escape everyday life and enjoy the awesomeness of the cycling lifestyle. It’s all about having fun with likeminded women, awesome riding and relaxing in this girl’s only trip.
#RideAlongSpain is guided bij ex-pro cyclist Marijn de Vries, who knows the area very well. She retired from professional racing only weeks ago. Marijn used to prepare herself for the racing season in Catalunya. She fell in love with the beautiful quiet roads, picturesque villages and great sceneries - and now she thinks it's time to share all of this with you.
Prepare yourself for some luxury if you sign up: you’ll stay in the 4 star Van der Valk Barcarola beachhotel at the Costa Brava, close to the city of Girona. The trip runs from Friday till Monday. You’ll have some fantastic rides throughout the week and everybody will be able to ride at her own level.
The rides will start in the morning and go on until early afternoon, so in the late afternoon there is some free time. You can explore the surroundings, enjoy the sea, go quad biking, canoeing, stand-up paddle boarding, visit the city, have a glass of wine in one of the bars, or just enjoy some time off to read a book and relax in the sun.
Once you have signed up we will send you and information pack which details all of these activities allowing you, if you wish, to plan in advance.
Sunshine, bikes, relaxing, culture and fun. What more could you ask for? This is a cycling trip you simply don’t want to miss out on.
28 February - 5 March 2017
Of course you can sign up with your friends! Feel free to spread the word. We’ll only be able to run the trip with a minimum of 15 participants, so the more friends you bring the better. For more information please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
