The PathLessPedaled bloke has moved to Girona so it’s probably worth having a look at some of his videos from the last ) months

Cap de Creus has lots of nice riding between Roses and Cadaques. There's a 360km circular gravel route that goes from Girona to Camprodon and into France via the Col de Ares then back to Jonquera and along the coast. It's called the Pirinexus. Still an area suffering acute drought so don't rely on village fonts working.
Oh and try not to miss the flight :wink:

Hi Rich. SSEC was held over there in 2013. It was based in St Gregori and there were some excellent routes round there.
