About this trip

When the World championships in Scotland were announced, we were delighted because we had always dreamed about organising an Experience in Scotland. Now we have a golden opportunity to invite our guests to immerse themselves in the rich heritage, culture & landscapes of Scotland, whilst coming to witness the pinnacle of the cycling race calendar. 

We have designed a bespoke 7 day experience that gives you a true flavour of this beautiful enchanting country. We have meticulously selected a small number of luxury hotels with a quintessential Scottish flavour and will choose one from which we will base ourselves and use as a perfect starting point to explore the wild landscapes of this Scottish region on the bikes. Each ride will be fully supported with guides and a qualified mechanic on hand for any eventuality. Having just explored the area - we are now deciding the best routes we will use next August 2023. Scotland is certainly a magical place to ride a bike and we are spoilt for choice with the array of routes available! 

But what brings us here, is to view the best riders in the world, battle it out for the coveted rainbow jersey. You will be given prime access to witness the riders grapple for position as they head for the finish line, to be crowned world champion. All that’s left to do is to celebrate the winner with a glass or two of the local tipple. As part of this unique experience - we have teamed up with former UCI President Brian Cookson OBE who will be joining us to ride, have dinner and share his wealth of knowledge on the subject he is so passionate about - everything cycling. 

Aside from cycling, we invite you to savour the many flavours of Scotland. The new wave of Scottish chefs have put Scotland on the world culinary map - with an exciting twist on hearty Scottish classics. And it would be amiss to come to this corner of the world and not visit a whisky distillery and sample some of the legendary single malts. 

Allow us take care of everything – so you can just focus on riding through these Scottish landscapes and sharing this unique experience with your fellow riders.

An experience that goes beyond cycling - an authentic journey that explores the roads, restaurants, mountains & more. A perfect balance that allows you to push yourself as hard as you choose but also a chance to relax, and soak up the stunning vistas of the regions. For us it’s all in the detail & care - from the moment you are collected at the airport, you will be looked after by us with meticulous care throughout the entire journey - from the daily cleaned and serviced bike, the fully equipped support vehicle & freshly laundered kit.

Reviews

I've been to the Dolomites three times before but the trip with Girona Velo was by far the best. The accommodations were first class, the riders were evenly matched, the food was spectacular and the humor was brilliant! Don't miss out on one of these once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

Greatest trip I've ever had! Hotels and meals are all taken care of and were excellent. But even better, the staff is just down to earth and able to make roll with the punches like changing weather, etc. They know how to pick a great mix of guests so that everyone gets along and has lots of fun together. Can't wait for the next trip!

We really had a great trip. The food was excellent as were hotels. Most importantly everything was handled with smooth transitions. Simply show up and pedal!
