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.
Our Challenge 147 offers you the opportunity to ride acros vineyards and mountains for one of the most challenging routes of The Penedès. We’ve gone to design a ride, departure and finale in Vilafranca, which will test our limits with four climbs, Les Ventoses, La Torreta, El Pontonenc and Font-Rubí. The route take place on territory which pro-cycling riders compete every year at La Volta a Catalunya or La Vuelta a España. Today’s itinerary makes its way through small villages, where we recommend stop for rest or just have a drink. Our first climb starts right out of St. Jaume dels Domenys, and the last one from Guardiola. In La Llacuna, kilometer 90, will be awaiting for us with “esmorzar de forquilla” (breakfast/brunch tasting menu).

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.
