Once again this super popular event, this year held on the Tuesday evening after the Hill Climb is the Catalan Gala Meal in restaurant Cul del Món.
Located just on the edge of the Les Gavarres Mountain Nature Reserve, this well known local restaurant provides an amazing setting for our Gala Festival event.
A fantastic evening and the first social event of the week and a chance for all the participants to get to know each other off the bike and enjoy the Catalan-Moroccan fusion cuisine that is the specialty of this amazing restaurant.
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!
