In this video, I enjoy a pleasant cruise ride in the company of assembled media and Specialized staff members around the beautiful countryside surrounding Girona. The ride ends Banyoles, where we enjoy a great evening of socializing and amazing food (sorry folks, I didn’t record any behind-the-scenes footage).

Part Three will feature my final ride with the Specialized crew and assembled media for the Diverge launch.
