One of the perks of being a gold pack member is you get to experience some unique activities in and around Girona. And this is one of them. Specially for the Girona Cycling Festival, Girona Food Tours has designed the ´gira d'aliments daurats´- the Golden Food Tour. This exclusively tour will take you past local vendors and have you tasting some great, local produce. Learn all about the world of ham, taste some typical Gironès dishes and enjoy local cava & wines. Not only great fun, but you´ll also learn more about Girona, its local food, local stories and local people. A great experience! For more information about Girona Food Tours you can visit their website.
Live jewellery-making session at Jordi Rosich's workshop.
The secret workshop of Jordi Rosich where the best diamonds in the city sleep.
Beneath one of Girona's most emblematic streets, Rambla de la Llibertat, lies the secret workshop of Jordi Rosich.
This is where Rosich designs and traditionally creates all his haute joaillerie collections, nestling below his boutique: ROOSIK&CO.
Not only will he be supplying our fabulous watches given as prizes in the Hill Climb, he will also be doing an exclusive tour of his private workshop and demonstration of his creative jewelry making process.
Exclusive for Gold Pack members.
As always there will be a daily shop ride from Bike Breaks or the race village during the festival week.
One of our fantastic hosts for this Girona Cycling Festival edition is:
MASIA CAN PORTELL:
COLORFUL MUSIC & CHILL STOP

Thursday 13th of June at 10:00h from the Race Village
Our friends over at Gravet Sèries, organisers of fantastic local gravel ride adventures have put together a 70km gravel ride specially for the Girona Cycling Festival. We have 25 places available for Gold and Silver Pack entries only, don't miss out, join in!
I have been going to the Girona Cycling Festival every year since 2014 and it’s the first cycling trip that goes in the diary every year. The Gold Pack has everything you could want and more – Entries to all of the cycling events, guided group rides with Josep, and if you are lucky you might get to follow the wheels of some of the resident professionals for a while before they peel off to do their hard work for the day. As well as the great riding and the friendship, the Gold Pack also includes all of the social events that take place through the week, as well as some exclusives. This year the “Food Tour” had to be tasted to be believed.
Definitely can’t wait to see what June 2019 has in store!
