The story of this holiday company Cycle Catalan
A recent addition to the Women Travel list of women owned tour companies
Twenty five years ago we booked a family holiday in Catalonia and it was love at first sight!
Almost every year after our first visit we returned to explore more of the area, the mountains stretching up to the Pyrenees, the stunning coastline and the beautifully preserved medieval villages. We always left feeling we could have stayed longer.
A love of cycling, walking and the outdoors made us decide to set up our business in Catalonia.
On a wet cold grey February morning in Scotland in 2009 we embarked on our big adventure. Our daughter sent a good luck card which had a quote from Albert Enstein ” life is like riding a bicycle- in order to keep your balance you must keep moving” and we have embraced these wise words ever since.
We are passionate about our business and have tried to incorporate all the things we love most about living here, the wild flowers in Spring, the local vineyards producing quality wines, the festivals, the local markets laden with fresh produce and of course the weather which lifts the spirits wakening up to blue skies and warm sunny days.
For the last 4 years we have provided a guided Spring Flowers and Girona Flower Festival women only walking tour .
There is a great sense of bonding whereby everyone encourages each other to finish the walk. It is always very relaxed with a lot of fun at the end of the day, particularly with the popular salsa class and the additional pampering in Begur at the local spa.
