Irene Garcia (1974) Cataluña (Spain)
My name is Irene, I am a 46-year-old woman, mother of a 17-year-old girl. I started road cycling at 33 years old. I have climbed some of the legendary mountain like Tourmalet, Alp D’huez, La Madeleine in France and Stelvio, Umbrail Pass, Gavia, Nivolet from the Giro d’Italia.
I have also done the Camino de Santiago by mountain bike three times, from Catalonia to Finisterre more than 1000km in 13 days, the Vía de la Plata from Seville and the French Way from San Jean Pied de Port …but I don’t have to go very far to enjoy this passion, because I am from Catalonia where I am surrounded by a natural environment that is wonderful. A few km from the Montserrat Mountain, a step away from the Serra del Obac Natural Park, Sant Lorenzo Natural Park, which allow me to continue training and enjoying cycling.
