The best way to experience the sights, smells, and sounds of Barcelona is to bicycle through its beautiful hills and streets. Barcelona offers over 120 kilometers of cycle trails, and cycling offers the advantage of being an affordable, healthy, and environmentally-conscious mode of travel, as well as giving access to places and sights not available to automobiles. By choosing to tour on a bicycle, you’ll have the freedom to create your own schedule without worrying where to park your car.
In the Old City, cyclists with a penchant for history can enjoy the awesome sight of Sagrada Famlia church rising from the cobbled streets, as well as Barcelona’s famous Medieval Cathedral of Santa Eulalia. With numerous parks and even a zoo, Barcelona offers lush, green spaces for avid nature-lovers. If the ocean’s calling to you, visit one of Barcelona’s seven beaches, and enjoy the flawlessly blue Mediterranean waters. In the city center, cyclists can sample Barcelona’s famous tapas bars and street markets.
There are many hotels in Barcelona that are bicycle-friendly. Staying a couple of kilometers from the city center will give you full value for your money, and offer the opportunity to enjoy city sights you might otherwise miss.
