Private Barcelona bicycle tour: 6 neighbourhoods + food

What you'll do

A down-to-earth bike tour with an easygoing Irish-Brazilian lad who has lived in Spain for many years and loves introducing Barna to guests. We'll avoid the crowds and busy roads, taking you to unknown parts and uncovering fascinating stories, sites, and flavours, in 5 very different neighbourhoods. We'll cycle through medieval and modern Barcelona, and stop by a market to enjoy ham and cheese. Let's discover a 500-year-old medieval hospital and a street in the Raval neighbourhood which Gardel frequented back in the days. Enjoy beautiful views over the city, the 1992 Olympic Park, and an unknown and interesting quiet palm and cacti park, the second most important in Europe. We'll end the tour with a Spanish delicacy, a black rice dish cooked in squid ink and sangria or wine. Whether you're a seasoned cyclist or a casual rider, this tour is designed to be fun and informative, it is made for everyone.
