The Girona Cycling Festival goes well beyond just riding bikes. We aim to create a nice relaxed, social, yet fun environment and atmosphere for our participants to keep the mood light, socialise and get to know fellow festival goers. We all have one thing in common and that’s a passion for cycling so why not kick back with other riders and enjoy a beverage together throughout the week to chat all things cycling and beyond!

We have several organised events throughout festival week; from dinners to pre/post event parties, daily group rides and extra activities -all optional of course!

The FESTIVAL VILLAGE is our go-to place throughout the week, providing a central meeting point and excellent hang out area for participants and friends. There will always be something going on; from ride meeting point, to live music and post race parties. The atmosphere is fantastic and each year continues to be a real Festival highlight.

Participants with Gold and Silver Packs will have all meals and parties included.  Otherwise, individual meal tickets can be purchased.


The Catalan Meal has been a big part of the Girona Cycling Festival since its inception. It is the perfect evening out at one of our favourite, handpicked local restaurants, providing a real Catalan dining experience.

Experience the delicious cuisine traditional to Catalonia and enjoy it over a glass of local wine with fellow festival participants.


The Pasta Party concludes the opening event Hill Climb, at the summit of Els Àngels. It provides the perfect opportunity to sit back, refuel for the week ahead and get to know fellow riders. All while taking in the incredible views and appreciating your efforts following the climb to the top!


The Botifarrada is all about the BBQ! Botifarra is a typical Catalan sausage, traditionally served with Aioli. One word : delicious! After a big day out pedalling in the Girona Gran Fondo, these will be warmly waiting for you, along with a FREE BEER to celebrate your Gran Fondo efforts and the conclusion of a spectacular week!

The Festival raffle will be drawn here, so keep your fingers crossed and hang around in the Festival Village to be in the run to win some neat prizes, including a brand new Cannondale carbon road bike.



After zipping around the old town cobbled streets of Girona in the Nocturn criterium at twilight, you will be more than ready for some post event fun!

Join us in the Festival village (a short 200m from the finish line), for the prize ceremony, alongside the three great B’s : BBQ, burgers & beers.

Bring your family and friends along and share Nocturn experiences over some food from our excellent local food trucks and great music as you await the awards.

Food tickets are included in the Gold & Silver packs or can be purchased individually.


Join us for a pre Girona Gran Fondo ‘mix & mingle’ in the Festival Village on Gran Fondo eve!

Here is the perfect chance to get together with friends and socialise with fellow participants. Enjoy a nice bite to eat, a drink or two if you please and all over some chilled, local live music.

This is the best way to relax and unwind before the event in a social, yet ‘tranquilo’ atmosphere.

This party is free of charge and all festival goers are welcome to come along for some pre Fondo mingling, ahead of the big day!

If you do plan on attending, please RSVP to : info@gironagranfondo.com
