Cycling the Costa Brava Coast and Sant Grau

from The Col Collective

Stretching 256 kilometers from the mouth of the River Tordera, northeast of Barcelona, and running all the way up to the French border, the Costa Brava coast was named after the Mediterranean’s wild and rugged coastline.

Temperate winter conditions and gentle rolling roads mean it has a lot to offer for cyclists, so we thought we’d check out a 46km stretch from Sant Feliu de Guíxols to Lloret de Mar. Naturally it wouldn’t be The Col Collective without a climb so we take a slight detour and head inland for a 6.3km climb up to Sant Grau, where the views get even better!
