We have a great plan for you to have fun and to see Barcelona highlights riding your bike. It could be a route by a city center or escaping from the masses to the towards the Maresme beaches. Have fun with 2 routes we’ve planned for you.
Let’s start with the easiest route that will let you to combine tourism, gastronomy and a pleasure of doing it riding quick as the wind. Enjoy Gaudi works, the crowdies street in the city La Rambla and eat paella in one of the terraces of Rambla. You have about 9 km to go on bike without any haste. You can start in any point, but we suggest you make a point of start Pl. Calalunya and move down through Las Ramblas. Then cross the Gothic neighborhood passing in front of the Cathedral of Barcelona and go to the Born, where you can admire Santa Maria del Mar Cathedral as well. Crossing El Born neighborhood go straight to Ciutadella Park and don’t forget to make a stop there. You even can leave you bikes and rent a boat for 15 minutes. Then go up by passeig Sant Joan and go left on Tetuan square following Gran Via up to c/Marina where you have to go to the right and magic views of Sagrada Familia will temp you. There take the bike path of c/Provenza until Passeig de Gràcia, where you can see La Pedrera (Casa Mila), La Casa Batllo, and other emblematic buildings of Barcelona. If you want to make some changes here you have a map of bike path in Barcelona.
For those who like an intensive riding we have this route that will takes about 2 hours and 32 km long. This route is perfect to make an escape cycling towards the Maresme beaches far from crowdie Barceloneta beach. Where the sand is clean and you shouldn’t almost fight for a place. The bike path that runs from the Forum area towards Sant Adrià de Besòs and Badalona, can be connected as well to the adapted tracks for bikes on the seafront towards Montgat, El Masnou and Premia de Mar. To give you an idea of the route, between the Forum and Premia de Mar there are 16km, and to Ocata 12km. If doing the entire route it seems excessive to you, you can use a train. But be aware that some schedules are very full and this can be a problem traveling with your bike.
