The Ride Zone
Gran Fondo Cambrils Park is held in one of the most spectacular cycling areas in Europe, The Costa Daurada, incorporating the Priorat, Montsant National Park and Prades Mountains. An area well known to professional cycling teams such as Giant-Alpecin and Team Wiggins who hold their pre-season training camps in the area. The Gran Fondo routes cover several climbs that have been included in both the Vuelta de España and the Volta de Catalunya so you’ll be pedaling in the tracks of such names as Contador, Froome, Degenkolb & Sir Bradley Wiggins.
The interior of the Costa Daurada has thousands of kilometres of perfectly surfaced, traffic free secondary roads, which makes it a cyclist’s paradise. Add in the spectacular scenery, exceptional climate and world famous gastronomy and you’ll just want to keep coming back for more.
