Cycling in the Penedes wine region in Barcelona is a great experience! And very easy to reach if you are in central Barcelona. Solitaire roads, great scenery, sunny weather… Wine and cycling… they match!
The famous Catalan cava (sparkling wine similar to french champagne) is made in this region.
At Montefusco Cycling you can get one of our rental carbon bikes at our shop, including a GPS device, take the train to Sant Sadurní d’Anoia, and start enjoying the trip! The train station of Sant Andreu Arenal is just 300 mts of our shop!
If you prefer a guided tour, then we also can provide a private guide and take a tour as long as you need (75-80 km usually). Then, complete the experience with a great lunch after the ride (at a typical Catalan restaurant). Finally, you can visit one of the best wineries in the region: Bodegas Torres.
In both cases (guided and self-guided), you will be cycling in solitaire roads, most used by winemakers, leading to those tiny roads among vineyards without any traffic,
Also, there are no big climbs or difficult hills, so the cycling experience is for everyone: beginners, intermediate or advanced cyclists.
If you are into wine and also into cycling, touring in the Penedes region, close to Barcelona, is the kind of day trip you are searching for!
Do not miss the experience!
