Catalonia MTB Tour #Cataloniamtbtour / Catalunya MTB Tour

In 11 Stages 

Catalunya MTB Tour / Catalonia MTB Tour

I wanted to make some MTB trip near home and decide to do one route that I found at the web www.rutabike.com named Transcatalunya (I call it #Voltaacatalunya)

The route follows parts of the Camino de Santiago and covers the four provinces, and some of the most representative and charming landscapes (Tarragona, Prades, Solsona, Ripoll, Olot, Girona, Barcelona and Vilanova i la Geltrú). I re-design the second stage of Prades - Lleida and I ended up doing Prades - Ponts through Ivars i Vila-sana Pond.
