La Puntual x Velocio
Support your locals
If you are in Girona this week catch the bread truck from La Puntual x Velocio and share it on your socials. Super happy to be part of this collaboration.
Girona cycling culture goes further than just the stores related to this sport, is part of our DNA and community. So with this inclusive point of view, we managed the collaboration with these two brands we love! La Puntual is the best bakery in town, really appreciated from locals to expats so no better touching point to do this collaboration with Velocio. Don’t miss the bread there is a must if you are in town.
