Biking in Barcelona

The city hall of Barcelona has made a great effort to create a bike-friendly atmosphere: you'll find bike lanes on many main roads, and you can take your bike on the metro (except during rush hour), FGC and rodalies trains. Add to that Barcelona's mild, sunny climate and you're all set... hop on, start pedalling and get to exploring!

While Ciutat Vella, with its winding, narrow streets packed with tourists, is not ideal for biking, there are a number of great paths outside of the old city. Most bikers - and there are plenty of them - head to Montjüic, the Coast Line, and the Parc Collserola.

Rentals & Bike Tours in Barcelona

Renting a bike in Barcelona is a cinch. If you're not ready to explore on your own, organized bike tours are a great way to get a first impression of the city.
