ITINERARY AND PASSAGE CONTROLS
With the collaboration of the Girona Tourist Board and the local tourist offices, we have established Pass Controls where participants will have to stamp their Pass Card. They will be available during scheduled time slots based on the estimated speed in each section and the departure times. Pass Controls are located in the highest category places in the province, will feature Crom Ride equipment and will be located in visible places.
The recommended route that we will send you, and that you can purchase in Roadbook format on our website, is an itinerary with high landscape value that the organization suggests thanks to the very nature of the Crom Ride. Under no circumstances is this route mandatory as long as all Passage Controls will be sealed in. The roads used to complete the Passport may be at the discretion of each participant, although we recommend following the route provided by the organization.
The Crom Ride is estimated to last approximately 10 hours, including stops to fill the tank and charge energy. We expect the first participant to finish around 4 PM and the last around 10 PM. There is no maximum time to complete the route as long as you take into account the schedules of the Controls and that the last Control of Passage in the Village of Fontajau closes at 11 PM.
If you do not complete the route, you must inform the organization. You will have all the contact telephone numbers in the Passport Card.
As the date of the Crom Ride approaches, we will keep you informed of the itinerary, the different checkpoints, the opening hours of the Passage Controls and the distance between them. All this information will also be sent by e-mail to those who are already registered.
We at the organization want a safe Crom Ride and for this reason we ask that you do the tour according to the established schedules.
