Taking a guided bike tour around Barcelona is a highly recommended plan, both for tourists that come to visit for a few days in the city and for people who live in Barcelona itself, as many of them make the most of a Sunday or any public holiday to take a bike tour with friends or family. There are many options for these guided bike tours. You can go on different routes, from those already planned and often focused on visiting some of the most important, central and well-known areas in Barcelona, to those that are more personalised and often private where they encourage you to discover other parts of the city, less busy but just as interesting.
What sights to see and visit during the guided bike tours?
During these guided bike tours, it is useful to make different stops at the most interesting sights. This allows participants to rest a little whilst they listen to the guide’s explanations. From the promenade and sea front (during summer, access may be closed due to the crowds of people) up to the streets of Ciutat Vella (Gothic Quarter, El Raval, La Ribera – Born and La Barceloneta) can be visited by bike. It is also recommended to cycle to the mountain of Montjuïc or Tibidabo and the rest of Sierra de Collserola, without a doubt a wonderful experience which will be hard to forget. Another option is to go for themed tours and aimed more towards tourists, that allow you to explore the works of Gaudí and Modernism overall in a more original and entertaining way.

Many companies offer guided tours with electric bikes. This significantly reduces the effort you have to make, which helps those who are less used to cycling or those of a certain physical ability to be able to go on the tour more easily. It is ideal for bike tours that explore places such as Montjuïc mountain or the Sierra de Collserola.
