We had a great time, the bicycles didn't give any problem during the 60km ride from Olot to Girona. However, during the last kilometres, we missed having a padded cover for our saddles (we are not used to riding for so long and on hard seats). It was on a Saturday, so we had to arrange with the staff the issue and collection times. They were very kind to us.

8d/7n self guided bike trip, and everything these guys put together was perfect! Great bikes, routes and hotels. The route book was the best we've seen. They are very accommodating, delivering jerseys to our hotels to try on, always being available to answer questions, and very conviniently located in Girona. This is our fourth bike trip in Europe, and all have been great. But I think I would rank this group #1. I highly recommend them in Spain.

The guys at Cicloturisme are excellent. They looked after us with professional enthusiasm and made sure we were completely happy with our bikes and set ups before we left for our trip.
The bikes performed faultlessly over the five days and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to anyone planning a trip.

The crew at CicloTurisme were extremely nice, helpful and spoke good English. The equipment we rented were of good quality/brands and well maintained. CicloTurisme is very close to the train station and bus station and a parking garage is next door.

We got bikes, helmets, locking wires and a repair kit and they made sure everything was OK before we took off. They answered all our questions and even suggested a place for an early lunch/snack before we took off. We rode on high quality and comfortable touring bikes that fitted us very well. Everything to a reasonable price.

Out plan was to rent e-bikes, take the by bus to Olot and ride back to Girona on a stretch of Via Verde (57 km mostly downhill).

If we had called in advance, we could have had electric bikes, but as it was low season there was no charged batteries. We rented two very nice touring bikes that worked like a charm. However, going downhill or flat most of the distance, we did not really need e-bikes. Our bikes were very well maintained and had a small bike computer (distance speed etc) on the handle bar. My wife who always complains about saddles found out that she did ride the whole distance without getting “saddle tiredness”.

Before renting the bikes the staff att CicloTurime suggested we should go to the bus station just across the square to buy bus tickets and make reservations for the bikes to make sure the bus had room for our bikes to Olot. (The bikes are stored in the luggage department under the bus.)

The bus trip to Olot takes 1:45 hours. We took the 11:10 bus, which gave us 4,5 hours to be back before CicloTurisme closed at 18:00. It was a close call, and we more or less biked the whole time with only two short pauses. An extra hour would have given us time for a proper lunch and some breaks along the trail. If we would do this again, we would have made sure that we took the 10:10 bus to Olot.

In Olot it took us some time to find Via Verde in Olot (tip: follow the little river downstream on Ronda del Fluvia and then Avinguda de Castella Lleó until Placa d’Espania. Find Av. De Valencia (opposite of where you entered Pl. d’Espania) and continue to the left on Passeig de Barcelona. When you cross the river on the bridge Pont de Ferro, the entrance of the Via Verde is just to the right after the bridge.)

CicloTurisme also arranges more planned tours but this is how we did our trip and we can strongly recommend Via Verde and CicloTurisme for a beautiful and scenic bike trip.
