This section straddles the French and Spanish border – linking the Catalan-speaking communities in each country. Whilst the big draw will inevitably be the exciting city of Barcelona, for those heading further afield, in the province of Girona to the north you will find a well-developed network of cycle routes and in particular the Pirinexus route. Pirinexus passes through 53 towns and 8 different counties in total, and combines stretches of the greenways with other cyclable routes such as rural roads or tracks with low levels of traffic.
