  • “It took us 3 months to find someone who could help us rent bikes for the 9 th stage of Tour de France in Andorra. That is when we happened upon Claudio from Montefusco cycling. He was able to give us references and we were able to secure two nice bikes for the journey, from a local like shop in Andorra. Our trip ended in Barcelona where we met up with Claudio for a beautiful but challenging ride in the hills of Barcelona. He matched bikes, schedules and interesting historical points along the route. His attention to detail and commication skills(English) would not hesitate to use Montefusco cycling again for a multi day trip in the future. Would like to thank Claudio again for a great day of riding!”
  • “My girlfriend and I were looking for an experience that would blend our passion for exercise with our desire to take in the sights of Barcelona on our first trip. Claudio was a patient and incredible tour guide as we rode through the hills outside Barcelona. The 4 hour ride was an experience of a lifetime and I would highly recommend Claudio to anyone seeking a truly wonderful cycling trip.”
  • “Last week I was fortunate enough to do the Hills of Barcelona Ride with Claudio. I am from Canada so I booked this private ride on online and crossed my fingers. Claudio was an amazing guide and someone who truly takes pride in his work as guide as well tremdous pride in Cycling in Barcelona. The ride was spectacular and I would 100 % recommend it to any one, especially to those who like some climbing! Bill”
  • “I had a wonderful time cycling with Claudio. He took me on a great 60km ride with three climbs that require some effort but they are so worth it! The views are breathtaking. Claudio met me at the bike shop and helped me get set up with the perfect bike and pedals then showed me on an excellent ride through the Barcelona countryside. It is an incredible trip I would highly recommend and would love to go on again. What a great way to fully experience Barcelona! Claudio is an excellent guide and very knowledgeable of the city. You can tell he has been cycling for years. You are in good hands. If you are a cyclist and do one thing while in Barcelona it has to be this ride!”
  • “I call them mountains of Barcelona. I had the greatest ride with Claudio. From the moment I contacted him until he dropped me off at hotel he was responsive,attentive, and a great guide. He set up a great ride and explained to me some history of Barcelona and points of interest along the way. It was a tough ride for me but when we got to the top together it felt like we were a team. I can’t not recommend him enough. Whatever your level you will have a great experience with him”
  • “Wonderful 40 mile/4800′ climb through the Serra de Collserola above Barcelona to Tibidabo and the Sagrat Cor Church. Magnificent views of the city and the Mediterranean. Claudio is a wonderful guide. Charming, funny, and full of local knowledge, he’s a pleasure to ride with. He put me on a Orbea Avant M30, which fit me better than my bike at home. He even had spare pedals when it turned out I’d put the wrong type of cleat on my shoes. Great lunch in town on the way back to the van. Altogether a perfect day. Look forward to doing it again next year.“
