Barcelona cycling guide

Cycling in Barcelona

A darling of bike cities, Barcelona features flat terrain and nice weather, plus some of Europe’s most sought-after sights. It’s a must to rent a bike in Barcelona, so you can experience as much of the city of possible.

Where cycling is muy guay

Going on a Barcelona bike tour is the best thing you could do here, apart from stuffing your face with paella and cava, of course. You may want to plan it around one of your interests, make it a Gaudí bike tour, a local markets bike tour, or a green bike tour, or even a tapas bike tour, though it might get a bit harder to pedal after the 4th restaurant. Alternatively, you can let your rental bike roll freely and just explore each barrio, one at a time.

Where do Barcelona locals go?

Here’s another tip on how to escape the crowds and go where the locals go: check the Spotted by Locals Barcelona blog! You’ll get insider tips by handpicked locals who clearly love their city and want to help you experience it like they do. They also have a 100% offline app, available on iTunes & Google Play (€3.99).

Spanish cycling rules

In safe hands

Always use hand signals to communicate your intentions while riding your rental bike. One hand straight up means stopping, right hand to the side – turning right, left hand to the side … you get the drill.

Bike helmets

Wearing a bike helmet is mandatory outside urban areas (you can get arrested if you don’t!).

Parking the rental bike

You must park your rental bike in designated bike racks, and never chain it around trees, traffic lights, wastepaper baskets etc. Don’t park more than 2 bikes on each side of a bike rack.

Cycling + Cava = not a good idea

You cannot cycle with an alcohol level exceeding 0.5 grams / liter in blood (0.25 milligrams / liter exhaled). The fine for drunk riding can go up to €500.
