Planning Your Visit

  • When should I take a bike tour in Barcelona?

    Spain is lucky enough to have great weather throughout the year. Warm summers are perfect for bike tours and even in the winter, a little activity will warm you up pleasantly. The warmest months are definitely July and August, where temperatures reach over 90 degrees.

Barcelona bike tours: Everything you need to know

If you’re an outdoor enthusiast, then Barcelona is the perfect vacation destination for you. It is located on the Mediterranean Coast and surrounded by hills and mountains. One of the best ways to see this picturesque city is on a Barcelona bike tour. On a professional tour, you can bike to some of Barcelona’s most popular landmarks, including Placa Reial, Barceloneta Beach, Olympic Village, and La Sagrada Familia.

Discover Barcelona with local residents

All of the bike tours include a Barcelona local that will serve as your guide. This tour guide will provide you with a wealth of information about the neighborhood and sites. No, you don’t have to be friends with Lance Armstrong to take a bike tour around Barcelona. Most bike tours offer an easy ride with many stops for water and bathroom breaks. Tours typically last from two to four hours.

Explore Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter

Book a city center bike tour to get a close-up look at the Barcelona governmental offices and the town square. You’ll also get a tour around the old part of the city. Here you can marvel at the interesting buildings and architecture on your way to the nearby Gothic Quarter. This area also connects to a large park and a bicycle path that leads to the waterfront. In this neighborhood, you’ll enjoy a quiet ride on winding, cobblestone roads.

Shopping bike tours in Barcelona

In the Gothic Quarter you will see many restaurants, trendy nightclubs, and cathedrals with beautiful stained-glass windows. Make sure to take a big backpack with you because you’ll pass many vendors along the way. Along with great food, you’ll be able to buy handcrafted art, clothing, jewelry, and leather goods.

Olympic Village bike tours in Barcelona

The 1992 Summer Olympics were held in Barcelona. Take a bike tour through Olympic Village and Port Veil. You’ll be in good company while at Olympic Village, popular with cyclists, rollerbladers, and runners. Keep cycling (get those legs going) to Barceloneta Beach. Once there, you can grab a refreshing cocktail at one of the cool beach bars. Next, take a deep breath while you take in the beauty of the sea, and don’t forget to snap a photo. Still have some energy? Show off your volleyball skills in a sand match or spend your time playing Frisbee.

Unusual and unique bike tours in Barcelona

Most bike tours will be on flat ground. But if you’re up for the challenge, you can take a bike tour through the hills of the city. Ride all the way to the top for breathtaking views of the skyline. Make sure to have your camera ready to capture panoramic photos of the city. These tours last about six hours.

Fat bike, electric bike, and night tours are also available in and around Barcelona. Instead of walking the city center at night, why not see it on a bike? On the tour, you’ll see the city in all its splendor. This is a great way to enjoy the Magic Fountain Show featuring colored lights and a dynamic water display. You’ll also pass by the main square in the heart of the city. The tour might even stop by a bar or two for tapas and wine. Everything looks different at night (especially after a glass of wine), so you’ll get an entirely different experience than on a day tour.

Why take a bike tour in Barcelona?

You’ll be able to cover a little more of the city on bike than on foot. Plus, Barcelonians enjoy riding bikes, so you’ll fit right in with the locals. You’ll also burn off the extra calories you’ve gained from the wine and leche frita you’ve been indulging in.

What will I need to bring for a bike tour in Barcelona?

Most bike tours will supply the bike, helmet, and safety gear for your ride. Although you’ll stop for drinks and rest, it is wise to take a couple of bottles of water and snacks in your backpack. This is especially important in the summer months because it is either hot or hotter.

Become familiar with the rules of bike riding in Barcelona before you embark on your tour. For example, you should note that in Barcelona you cannot ride your bike on the sidewalk. Instead, you’ll need to remain in the bicycle lane.
