El Solei is an ideal holiday home for cyclists located in Banyoles (Girona).
Girona is a successful destination for road cycling, mostly for international cyclists. The keys are geography, climate, connections, quality of life and anonymity.
The fact that the Girona demarcation presents a varied type of terrain and paths, with different slopes and degrees of difficulty, in addition to an extensive network of pedal routes, has contributed to the "exponential development" of the province as a destination for road biking.
The second reason is the fairly benign weather, which makes it possible to train throughout the year, unlike other European countries where there is great fans of this sport. The good connections in the region with other points of interest such as the Girona and Barcelona airports as well as the AVE station also play in its favour.
Professional cyclists such as Johnny Weltz, David Millar or Lance Armstrong -who for years established his residence in Girona- have become some of the main ambassadors and promoters of the destination.
