We warm up our legs on the flat from Llagostera to La Creueta in Girona, to start climbing "Els Angels" 10 kms , the most famous in Girona, this route through the Gavarres is known as "Hincapie Loop", in honor of George Hincapie, one of the many professional cyclists who made Girona their home, we began a rapid descent with magnificent panoramic views of the Pyrenees, Canigó, Cap de Creus, Les Medes, to the picturesque medieval town of Monells, where a stop and coffee is essential in the beautiful square. We continue through undulating terrain to Sant Sadurni de l’Heura where we begin the climb of 8 kilometers approx. to Santa Pellaia, popular with professional cyclists due to the super smooth and constant gradient, overlooking the natural area of Gavarres. The descent from Santa Pellaia to Cassà de la Selva and Llagostera is fast but fun.
