MTB Track Challenge Catalonia
Looking for a challenge? You are already an experienced mountainbiker but want to sharpen your techniques? Discover our MTB Track Challenge 6-day trip in Catalonia!
What does the program look like?
From Sunday 22th of March until Saturday 28th of March we're welcomed at the location of our local partner Hike&Bike for a training of five days with six overnight-stays.
We'll start the trainingweek with an introduction on the basic-trails and we'll offer a technical training to become femiliar with the terrain. We'll search bit by bit more challenging trails.
The thirth and fourth day we'll take the shuttleservice to Gerona, where locals have developed an Enduro paradise with more than 20 mighty trails. The technique we've learned the first two days will come in handy!
The Fifth also last day we'll be able to choose between Santa Susanna, Gerona or a new location!
In the mountains of Montnegre we'll be able to use the shuttleservice to drive to special trails. In the woods of Gerona we'll ride a lot of different single trails downhill. Our shuttle service is only used to get from our hotel to the trailcentra.
The best Enduro-trails and the Mediterranean Sea can be spotted from our four-star-hotel Onabrava. The Hotel is based on a half-board stay and offers a wellness, cosy bar, an indoors- and outdoors swimmingpool and a secure bike-garage. We'll stay in two-person rooms with separate beds.
For lunch we'll visit local restaurants near our trails where we can enjoy delicious Spanish dishes.
