Sun, asphalt and mountain. Start the engine up and dare to take on each of the turns that run along this route which departs from Barcelona, the most important coastal city of Spain.

3, 2, 1... Start your engines!

This experience on wheels will lead you, curve after curve, through the well paved roads of the Pyrenees, the natural border separating Spain from the rest of Europe. During some of the stages, we will also visit several mountain passes in the French side of the mountain range, famous for punishing cyclists’ legs in the Tour de France.

At every stage, there will be stops to enjoy the scenery, recover back strength and take pictures without having to keep an eye on the road.

Good turning angles and lots of fun will be the keynote of this adventure, designed to combine natural tourism and motorcycling. You’ll also have the chance to taste the world-famous cuisine of this region which is well-known for its culinary art.
