rutas en bicicleta en Barcelona

Barcelona is a city full of charm, art, nature and a variety of styles reflected through its streets, buildings and neighborhoods. We can enjoy it on foot or bicycle, both options allow us to observe each of its corners and discover new places. Doing sports while visiting one of the most beautiful cities in the world can become an unforgettable experience if you know the best routes to do so. Take your bike, or rent one at any of the bike rental companies, and discover Barcelona from a different perspective.

  • Montjuïc route. If what you want is to look at the old city from a vantage point, this is definitely the Montjuïc mountain, which offers one of the best views of Barcelona. For beginners, the best way up is through Avinguda de l’Estadi (Stadium Avenue) and from there to the castle through the Olympic walk.
  • Tibidabo route. For road cyclists, this route offers an ideal place to enjoy an intense ride while we fill ourselves with the nature and beautiful landscapes of Collserola. One of the best ways to reach the park is by Arrabassada, but there are other possible routes, such as going down the road of Forat del Vent, Vallvidrera or Molins de Rei.
  • Parque del Besós route.Continuing with road cycling, you have a bike lane paved in good condition, approximately 5km long and flowing parallel to the river Besos. This is ideal for those who want to enjoy a quiet and relaxed ride route.
  • Barcelona seafront route. Are you someone who prefers a more urban landscape? Barcelona’s seafront gives you the possibility of cycling through the city to the beach of Barceloneta. To do this, take the bike lanes enabled from Plaza de Colón, on  Moll de la Barceloneta and continue towards the Olympic Village (Vila Olímpica) to reach the Forum.

These are the most popular routes for cycling in Barcelona but not the only ones, the city offers endless possibilities waiting to be discovered.
