La Garrotxa is one of the best places for bike touring in Catalonia. Olot is a key location, since it is necessary to pass through it to connect the Via Verda del Ferro with the Via Verda del Carrilet Olot-Girona. The connection can be done through two different routes: the first is Sant Joan de les Abadesses - Olot passing Santigosa mountain pass and Coubet mountain pass, using the old road GI-521, and the second is Sant Joan de les Abadesses - Olot passing Santa Llúcia de Puigmal and Vall de Bianya.
Olot is the recommended starting point to explore the The Carrilet cycle lane, as much of the route until Girona is in downhill.
