We are in love with our home, the Priorat. Small villages with people who are simple and firm. A landscape marked by small-scale agriculture, and a territory with a long history and culture. We take genuine delight in cycling along tracks and paths, discovering hidden corners as we go, either alone or accompanied by good friends.
CICLA aims to share our two passions: MTB and the Priorat. We will accompany you to discover and enjoy both, in ways you hadn’t expected.
Tailor-made routes, you decide
Calendar and seasons: we can programme rides all year, as long as bookings are made with up to 15 days’ notice, so that we can prepare the route.
The minimum length is 4 to 5 hours (either in the morning or the afternoon), one day, a weekend, or more days.
Groups can be of 2 people, or much larger groups.
You will decide the level of difficulty. Finding the correct balance makes a route adequate and enjoyable.
Tell us what you are looking for, and what sort of person you are. You can choose a demanding route, or an easier one, still requiring effort, but fun at the same time. We will design and set up the route for you.
Between each section of the route, we will pause to take refreshment, nourishing body and mind so as to keep cycling. We can stop for a while halfway along the route so as to contemplate the landscapes of terraces and slate slopes, cycle down narrow streets and through village squares, climb up to Siurana, visit the Monastery of Cartoixa d’Escaladei and the mines of Bellmunt del Priorat, and, obviously, try fantastic Montsant and Priorat wines. And for those of you who want even more adventure, you can go climbing or kayaking.
You will be accompanied by 2 or 3 guides on each route. In this way, depending on the route, we can adapt to the level and needs of everybody in the group.
Feeling safe means cycling without worries. Having a federate licence or mountain biking insurance is essential for any route with Cicla. If you don’t have either of these, don’t worry. We offer you the possibility of contracting insurance exclusively for the programmed mountain bike activity.
If you have a mechanical breakdown en route, don’t worry, we can help you with basic repairs. If the breakdown cannot be fixed in situ, you will be provided with transport, to take both cyclist and bicycle back to the starting point of the route, at no additional cost.
According to the design of the route (duration, distance and path followed), we will organise the booking of restaurants and/or accommodation so that you have everything you need on arrival. We also manage reservations for different types of activity: enotourism and oleotourism, sites of natural or historical interest, as well as adventure activities.
If you are unable to participate in the route, due to the weather or force majeure, we can plan the trip for another day. In the case of cancellation for other reasons, Cicla will not return the reservation fee.
