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.
Date Bike Tour: October, 7th 2017.
The World Rally Car Bike Tour is a new route. We’ll enjoy the unique experience of cycling quietly through Penedès wine country, and live 2 timed sections of the World Rally Championship on the road .
Enjoying an early morning ride (6:30 a.m.) between scenic vineyards, it will take us to the West, to Sant Jaume dels Domenys. From there, we will climb 3 km through the Alt de Les Ventoses, to the place where we will see, from 8:00 a.m., the first pass of competitors. Drivers battle one at a time, driving vehicles up to 380 hp of power , to complete this section as quickly as possible, with timing down to 1/10th second. Along the way, a co-driver reads detailed pace notes that explain what is coming up ahead. When the cars have just passed, we will up to the top of climb to go for a full breakfast/brunch. After this, an area close to Aiguaviva awaits us, to live from 1 pm, the thrilling head-to-head title fight between four-time world champion Sébastien Ogier and Thierry Neuville. At the end we will return to Vilafranca through Torrelles de Foix.

Delivery service and collection of bikes
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.
