Riding the Costa Brava

One of many roads to the Costa Brava near Girona Spain. See more photos in our Spain 06 gallery and posts tagged Spain.

Timbuk 3

Timbuk 4 I added a 3rd Timbuk2 messenger bag to my collection for our trip to Spain. Messenger bags work great, but anything over 5 pounds for more than 4 hours gets very tiresome slung across your shoulder and chest. With all their big-box retailer offerings and fashion bags, I thought that Timbuk2 had lost itself along the way from a Hippie messenger shop to a corporate, sellout making poseur bags.

Two Huggers to Spain

GironaHugger 1 and 2 (Pam and I) will ride in Girona and Barcelona Spain next week. In Girona, we’re staying at the Moli Del Mig Hotel, which specializes in cycling vacations. Their amenities include bike cleaning facilities, workshop and mechanic, secure storage for bikes, and a menu just for cyclists!

For us, there’s no better vacation that eating, sleeping, and riding and doing that in Girona is going to be even better. As reported in the NYTimes, Girona is home to many professional cyclists, it’s considered a cycling mecca, and we’ll “represent” hugga style on those roads. Of course, I’ll blog the whole experience.

A few days later, we’ll ride in Barcelona. That riding will be more metropolitan and most likely just on bike paths and to coffee shops, but enjoyable just the same.
