On your bike! The best cycle routes for exploring Barcelona

By | 19 June, 2018 | 0 comments

Fresh air, sea breeze and fantastic weather make our city the perfect place for exploring by bike and discovering all the hidden secret spaces in Barcelona. In this post, we’ll tell you all you need to know about the best routes you can follow by bike to see the city in a whole new light.

Semana Santa en Barcelona

Montjuïc, breathing fresh air into Barcelona

One of the best routes we can suggest to you is the nature trail that Barcelona provides. In other posts, we’ve told you about bike trails in Amposta, just outside the city, but now we’re thrilled to be able to show you just how easy it is to get some fresh air right in the heart of the city.

We recommend you spend a full day on this route as Montjuïc has lots of great places to see, and as you cycle, you’ll be able to appreciate some other fantastic places along the way, such as Montjuïc Castle, the Olympic Stadium, the Palace of Sant Jordi, the Gardens of Miramar, Costa Llobera, the Poble Espanyol, as well as Barcelona’s botanical gardens.  This route is perfect for people who want to get out and about on their bikes, mainly for those who have a little experience in the saddle, as it’s a mountainous track where you’ll find plenty of ups and downs.

An urban tour of Barcelona by bike

Another great option we can suggest is discovering the urban heart of Barcelona on your bike.

We suggest you start at Plaza Catalunya, heading down Las Ramblas to Drassanes, following Passeig Colom until you get to Parque de la Ciutadella, before continuing along Passeig de LluísCompanys, where you’ll be able to take in the astonishing Arc de Triomf. Afterwards, head towards Gran Vía, stop off at the Sagrada Familia and end your day at Paseo de Gràcia.

It’s a broader route, taking you past all the top sights you’ll want to see as you discover the urban face of Barcelona.

The Barcelona coast by bike

The final route we’d like to suggest lets you discover Barcelona’s long and beautiful coastline by bike. Enjoying the magnificent sea views as you ride along the coast is one of life’s true pleasures, and something you’ll definitely want to do again. We recommend you cycle alongside the beaches before stopping off for a refreshing drink, something to eat or simply to watch the waves hit the shore. Complete relaxation to help you totally switch off.
