L’Esperit de Girona is a solo and unsupported off-road bikepacking event taking place on October 2nd, 2022.

Starting and finishing in Girona, the route covers approximately 800 kilometers and features 28,000 meters of climbing.

The event is hard. It will test riders to their mental and physical limits. The fastest will struggle to crack four days yet there will be no time cut off for the slowest riders.

The route has been painstakingly pieced together from scratch by ultra-endurance cyclist James Hayden. Drawing on his many years of experience competing in the world’s toughest bike-packing races, this event will take riders on a journey through some of the most amazing riding that the province of Girona has to offer.
