À propos de Fleck
A Londoner in Girona. Always up for coffee.

Early start to catch the sunrise from the top of Els Angels again. Found out the other day that this route is known as the ‘Hincapie Loop’ as it was one of George Hincapie’s favourite routes to ride when he was a Pro living here - I can see why! Apparently a stop in the town of Monells is a must for a coffee in the square but I always pass too early to do this. Next time.

Great route courtesy of The Service Course from their 'Classic Girona' collection. The ride flew by as there was so much to look at, especially with the sun coming up over the mountains. Both of the climbs are easy and reward you with some fun descents over the other side. A new pre-work favourite.

First time up Rocacorba! I’ve heard about this climb many times, and it did not disappoint. The route there from Girona is scenic once you get off the section of motorway that you need to do to get out of town. The roads are smooth and winding and before you know it you’re onto the main climb. I thought I was doing fine but then it really kicks up and takes your breath and your legs away. If you can crawl up there (like I did) the view from the top is incredible.

First ride since we moved to Girona, and first time up the full length of Els Angels and Santa Pallaia. Pleasantly surprised by the gravel cycle/walk paths on the way in and out of town. The Spanish countryside that fills the gaps between climbs and cafes here is quite beautiful.

We set off from Girona up and over Els Angels with some nice gravel sections. Started out with sunshine. We saw the storm coming but for some reason thought we could beat it. Turns out it was coming in much faster than we can ride and we got caught out by sideways hail on the top of a ridge. Looking back at the photos I don’t know why we thought we would get away with it.
