Overview

Authentic Road Bike Vacations in the Pyrenees & Girona. Reliable and customisable cycling vacations with a friendly, unpretentious atmosphere in small family-run hotels. This was the vision Dirk Guennemann had when he founded Canigou Cycling in 2003. Since then we have welcomed clients from more than 15 European and North American countries. Dirk has always been passionate about the boundless freedom of traveling with his road bike. In his teens and 20's he would go for multi-week tours equipped with only minimalist luggage, exploring the back roads of Europe, North America and Asia. In 1988 one of these trips brought him across the Pyrenees to Girona where he immediately fell in love with this beautiful region and it's many possibilities for cyclists. He came back as often as he could until 15 years later he took the opportunity of moving to Girona permanently. Soon after he started his own road cycling company focusing on hub and spoke tours in the pro-region of Girona and epic multistage tours in the Pyrenees including many famous cols of the Tour de France and Vuelta a Espana. These roots still show today as we carefully select the most scenic routes that highlight the natural beauty of this region and stay at smaller family-run hotels that offer an authentic local experience. Road cycling is important-but it is not everything. We offer worry-free cycling services such as our well maintained Cannondale rental bikes, our friendly local bike guides, sport specific meals and well researched GPS routes. But beyond this, we also know that when the cycling is over it is time for other pleasures to begin. Enjoy excellent local meals, discover medieval villages or hidden coves along the Mediterranean, and relax in this unique Spanish environment. Our different vacation formats offer options for everyone: from fully supported tours in the Pyrenees to training camps to self guided tours (we supply the bikes, hotels, routes, GPS and support as needed), as well as our newest model, the Adventurers and Cyclists tour, with activities for non-cycling spouses.

Canigou Cycling offers a reasonably priced tour that includes excellent support, nice accommodations, and thoughtful guidance for enthusiastic cyclists. The routes throughout the Central Pyrenees are breathtakingly beautiful and, literally, breath taking.
