We’ll start off following the Via Verde and wind our way through fields, forests and roads dotted with traditional ‘masia’ buildings.

Today’s ride has some of the best gravel riding in the region. Those people that like scraping s*** off their bike will love this special route we have arranged for you. Then it’s downhill all the way back to the Can Campolier in time for a G&T, beer or simply relaxation by the pool.
