A big part of what makes a good route is the bicycle. So we rely on excellence and collaboration of Cicles Sans SPECIALIZED CONCEPT STORE for our routes.
The north Penedès, mosaic of vineyards and wooded streams, awaits us in this journey filled with small caves, scattered farmhouses and churches that make up the essence of the region. First, we will go direction Guardiola, we aim a rise of 9 km to the upper Font-Rubí. At the highest part, the Balcony of the Penedès will give us a view of the flatland, before starting small descent, before continuing another rise of 9 km to the upper point of the route. From there we will go to Pontons, for a “esmorzar de forquilla” (full breakfast menu). After enjoy the meal, a downhill route will take us back to Vilafranca through Alt de Les Ventoses.

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.
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. And to make the Roubaix feel stable and comfortable on the longest of rides, the frame is built with our Endurance Geometry.
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.
