Montseny mountain is really close to Barcelona. You can reach it from the big city and also from the Barcelona north coast and also from the Costa Brava. The highest elevation of Montseny is Turo de l’Home, at 1700 meters. One of the steepest roads in whole Catalonia, a real challenge for strong cyclists, if you are thinking of a cycling vacation. But no need to climb up to the top. You can reach Coll Formic or Santa Fe del Montseny. Solitaire roads climbing the mountain in which you can enjoy incredible landscapes, specially in autumn.
Do you want to discover Barcelona in a different way?? Enjoy your cycling 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.
