While planning a vacation from Canada to Spain, I managed to talk my wife into alllowing me to road ride in Girona. My subsequent internet searching and the rave reviews provided through Trip Advisor led me to 'Bike Breaks'. Over the next few weeks, I exchanged several e-mails with Dave and his staff inquiring about rentals, routes and the availability of a guide. Their responses were timely, detailed and put my mind at ease that I had made the right choice. Upon arriving at Bike Breaks, I was warmly received by one of Dave's staff (an Olympic Cyclist - cool!). Admittedly, I had left confirming my plans late and Dave had to scramble to find me a guide. He came through in spades by connecting me with a rider from one of the pro women's teams (GO LR!) and he fitted an all carbon Cannondale rental to my spec's. We hit the road the next day and had amazing 100K ride from Girona to Tossa De Mar on the spectacular Costa Brava. Having a pro guide ensured a quality ride and she provided some insight into the rigours of the pro tour while sharing her local knowledge along the way (bonus!). I now know why so many pro teams call Girona (and Bike Breaks) home. My experience with Bike Breaks was outstanding. As a result, the group I ride with is now contemplating changing our 2014 cycling trip from Italy to Girona. I should mention that over the few days I visited the store, it was evident that Dave, Saskia and Annie provide a high level of service to all ages / abilities (inc MB), and accommodate all requests to the best of their ability. They are a real asset to the cycling community. I look forward to returning next September.
