19 - 22 October 2018
We are heading to Sitges - just south of Barcelona - for our 2018 end of season experience. We will stay the cycling retreat Le Bike Stop. Here is how Le Bike Stop describes it:
"Le Bike Stop is a specifically designed cycling retreat/hotel. We're based on the beautiful and vibrant Mediterranean town of Sitges just south of Barcelona. When you stay with us forget about the hassle of daily transfers, packing and worring about where to ride and what to eat.
Once at Le Bike Stop, we'll take care of everything so you can ride, relax and enjoy our gorgeous culture with a peace of mind. Our retreat is about bringing the community together. Whether you're travelling solo or in a group you'll always be surrounded by like-minded cycling friends."
Sitges is sitting between the mountainous Garraf natural park and the Cava wine country of El Penedes. Some actually call this the Tuscany of Spain :-) This means a wide variety of terrain greets cyclists, be it long steady climbs or short and sharp hills via some rolling flats overlooking the sea.
At Le Bike Stop we can enjoy the amenities of free wifi, laundry, lounge areas as well as the outdoor pool and sauna. In addition there is a fully equipped bike workshop and secure garage. And in case of mechanical when out on the road we can call the breakdown rescue support. And if you need some time off the bike, Barcelona city is just a 30-minute journey away.
And the food...
"We pay particular attention in providing you with three nutritious, balanced and delicious meals a day ensuring that they meet the needs of a hard working cyclist yet not neglecting on great taste. All our food is homemade with a focus on using local, organic and ethically sourced ingredients wherever possible. The best wines from the area as well as beer are included during meals."
