Road cycling in Barcelona is much more than just cycling…

Do you want to discover Barcelona in a different way?? Enjoy your vacation in Barcelona riding a top-quality bike. It is not about riding fast, it is about enjoying one of the most amazing cities in the world. We have designed a tour in which you will be able to discover the long bike lane (5 km) beside the river Besos, full of runners, cyclists, and walkers. Then we will begin climbing. We will have a lot of climbing! Demanding tour indeed. The third hill of the day is the climb to Tibidabo mountain, at 500 mts high, with the best views of the city, amazing. There you can choose if going back to the city or going for an extra climb and an additional 20 km loop. Incredible Tour 60-80 km long with the best road cycling around Barcelona, no doubt.

  • The 4-hour ride was an experience of a lifetime.

    “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.”

  • The ride was spectacular and I would 100 % recommend it to anyone.

    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 online and crossed my fingers. Claudio was an amazing guide and someone who truly takes pride in his work as a guide as well as tremendous pride in Cycling in Barcelona. The ride was spectacular and I would 100 % recommend it to anyone, 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 can’t not recommend Claudio enough

    Whatever your level you will have a great experience with him. “I call them the mountains of Barcelona. I had the greatest ride with Claudio. From the moment I contacted him until he dropped me off at the 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 recommend him enough. Whatever your level you will have a great experience with him”

  • Altogether a perfect day. Look forward to doing it again next year

    “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 an 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. I look forward to doing it again next year.“
