During this holiday, you will stay at Hotel Medium Sitges Park. The hotel is located in a late 19th century Catalan modernist building in the lively and picturesque old quarter of Sitges. The reform work respected the inherent style of the hotel and introduced elements of freshness and Mediterranean tones.

Its ideal location means that all points of interest are less than five minutes walk away as it is very close to the beach, entertainment centers, and the train station. The hotel has a lounge, bar, and a garden with a swimming pool. The rooms are spacious and fitted with all the conveniences to ensure a comfortable stay.

Program

Day 1: Vilafranca del Penedès - Sitges

This is a meandering route ending southwards by the sea. The mixture of vine leaves, pine trees, and dry stone set around a particular orography between Garraf and Foix Natural Park. When passing through Sant Miquel d'Olèrdola, after a difficult but relatively ascent, you will find Castillo de Olèrdola, which was a strategic settlement from the Bronze Age until the 20thcentury. At Finca Viladellops, a premium wine tasting is waiting for you to discover and thrill you with their history. The last kilometers of the day will take you down to Sitges.

Day 2: Sitges - Vilafranca del Penedès

Today, the road will lead you through the Castellet Castle (a National Cultural Heritage) and the Foix reservoir, to the village of L'Arboç, where you will find the famous Giralda (1/2-size replica of the Seville building). During the tour, you can stop a few minutes at several places where the famous photographer Robert Capa immortalized in January 1939 some civilian refugees in retreat at the end of the Spanish Civil War.

From there, you will go to Sant Martí Sarroca to start a gentle descent to Vilafranca del Penedès. About halfway, the Cavas Oriol Rossell will expect you at its cellars, where you will enter the world of wine in a family farm dedicated to viticulture since the seventeenth century.

  • Accommodation: Hotel Medium Sitges Park (three-star)
  • Gradient: 460 meters
  • Level: daily distance between 40 - 60 kilometers (24 - 37.5 miles) for people who are fit and weekly pedal or practice other sports

Notes: You can upgrade your tour with a support and provisioning van.

Bike

A big part of what makes a good route is the bicycle. So, LetsVelo relies on excellence and collaboration of Cicles Sans - Specialized Concept Store for their routes. Collection and delivery of bicycles are available on request.

Tarmac SL4

The Tarmac doesn’t do one thing well, it does everything exceptionally - which is why it’s been ridden to victory in all three Grand Tours. The Tarmac’s advanced materials add a modern edge to the lively character of a classic race bike, while its Rider-First Engineered design ensures that the Tarmac sprints, corners, and descends with uniform excellence across every size.

Roubaix SL4

Named for one of the sport’s most storied and demanding races, the Roubaix is built to excel on the worst roads and in nasty conditions. Smoother is faster, so the Roubaix’s carbon construction is designed to maximize vertical compliance, while Zertz inserts and a CG-R seatpost work to absorb road chatter. To make the Roubaix feels stable and comfortable on the longest of rides, the frame is built with the endurance geometry.

Amira

Sure, you train hard and eat right, but there’s just one thing missing - an edge. The Amira gives you two. First, there’s the performance edge you get from its FACT carbon frame and tapered head tube. The combination results in responsive handling and true get-up-and-go accelerations. Then comes the psychological edge - the feeling that, when teamed up with a lightweight, high-performance machine, there’s no limit to what you can achieve together.

Included excursions

You will have the chance to experience wine tasting at Finca Viladellops and Cavas Oriol Rossell.
