The race will begin at 8 a.m. right next to the festival’s entrance on Rambla Xavier Cugat in Girona with a wide and fast stretch that gives way to charming, uncomplicated roads set amid the regions of El Gironès and La Selva before leading to l’Ardenya massif and then the sea.

The first mountain pass of the day will be that of Sant Grau where, at the start of the descent, everyone will get a chance to enjoy magnificent views of the Costa Brava.

Once on the road to Sant Feliu de Guíxols, cyclists will be able to ride alongside the Mediterranean Sea for 15 km on a stretch that cuts along the steep and spectacular coastline before heading inland into the Baix Empordà area.

On this part of the route cyclists will climb three classic mountain passes: Les Gavarres, Romanyà and La Ganga. One of the region’s most distinctive features are its small, remote villages, which have a special charm that participants will no doubt appreciate: Sant Sadurní de l'Heura, Monells, Parlavà, Foixà, the list goes on. All of them are connected by narrow, deserted roads that bring the cyclists closer to Girona.

Once approaching Girona, the last climb of the route takes place, allowing everyone to enjoy an extraordinary, unforgettable road requiring one last push that is rewarded with incredible views of the old town of Girona. The ideal way to wrap things, before crossing the majestic river Ter along the Josep Tarradellas Bridge, and descending down towards the finish line, which in 2019 will be on Rambla Xavier Cugat, right at the entrance of the Sea Otter Europe Costa Brava-Girona festival.
