Penedés is a wine producing region on the west side of Barcelona, in between a pre-coastal mountain range and the mediterranean sea. Penedés is known as one of the best producers in the world of wine and cava. Penedés is the perfect region for riding a road bike, and only minutes away from Barcelona!
From our headquarters, we will jump in our support van and head towards Martorell, the main door to the Penedés. We will park our van, get ready, and start the ride with our road bikes.
A rolling terrain from Martorell towards Gelida will take us to Sant Sadurni de Anoia, on of the main wine producers towns of the area: Quiet roads, vineyards, small single lane roads and beautiful scenery.
Slowly, we will get into a 2%-3% gentle climb towards Sant Pere de Ruidebilles, and taking a final breathtaking descent towards Martorell.
If you are keen, we could take a small break on many of the cava and wine factories of the area!
