A bike ride through the city.
We have prepared this route based on the cycle paths that are available so that you can fully enjoy a ride through Barcelona. The route connects the new and old neighborhoods. Both the Ramblas and the Raval district, the city park and the Arc de Triompf.
Cycling on the Montjuic mountain
This route has a long street that you have to go through, but once you pass it, the entire city landscape changes as the crowds decrease and the beauty increases. Once passed the beautiful Plaza España you will find some escalators which you can also use with the bicycle if you know how to, they will leave you halfway up the mountain. From there on it is very relaxed cycling with mostly downhill runs. If you would like to go a little higher up the mountain or avoid the escalators, we recommend renting an electric bicycle.
Cycle route along the beach From Barcelona
Before the Olympic Games, Barcelona had only 300 meters beach, today it is extended to a little more than 7km. It is an ideal ride on a sunny day to the entire coastline of the city to explore.
