Day 4 – Ripoll to Olot (part B, day 2)
After breakfast (included) you head out for another beautiful day. You start by following the old train line that went from the mines of Ogassa down to Ripoll. When you reach the old train station in the village of Sant Joan de les Abadesses after 10 km you can stop for a coffee and enjoy the morning sun. After a short break you pass the village and start the long uphill of the day. When reaching the mountain pass Coll de Santigosa we suggest you take a moment to relax, turn around and enjoy the view of the mountains.
From here you have a long downhill to the city of Olot and your next hotel. This city has a beautiful center that is well worth a visit. So after checking in to your hotel, take the bikes down to the city center for some exploring!

Breakfast and off for another beautiful day on the bike! Today 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. 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 20 years ago.
