In the village of Sant Joan de les Abadesses there are several bars to have a break, maybe a second morning coffee? From here you follow the old road to reach a mountain pass. Here starts the wilder part of the day when you follow a gravel road in sometimes bad state down towards the valley of Bianya. Here you again ride out on and old abandoned train line and have easy and joyful riding almost all the way to your hotel. Almost? Yes, there is one part where you will have to cross a river, pushing the bike…. Take care not to get the motor wet.
In Olot you check into your hotel and park your bikes, charging them for tomorrows adventure.

Day 5 – Olot to Girona
Breakfast and off for another beautiful day on the bike! Today is an easier day since you follow the clearly marked Green Way (old train line) down to Girona. You pass many villages on the way, all offering bars just next to the bike path.
You reach Girona early in the afternoon and have the rest of the day to discover this beautiful city, our favourite city in Spain. Don’t miss out walking on top of the old city wall! If you are interested in a city day, consider staying one day extra here. Girona is like Barcelona 25 years ago.
