Some examples of our routes in ITINERARY
47 km – 905 m
28,86 miles – 3.080 feet
This route will take you from our shop to the top of Tibidabo, one of the most famous peaks in the natural park of Collserola, where you can stop and have a refreshment at the restaurant they have there or just simply enjoy the magnificent views overlooking the city of Barcelona. Next the track will take you to the other side of the mountains ending up at the city of Sant Cugat del Valles, its not as big as the city of Barcelona but you will be able to find bars, restaurants, stores where you can buy a beverage or a snack, even for those who do not want to pedal anymore, there is an option to return to Barcelona on our reginal train. You can read a bit of this article about the use and regulations of traveling by train with a bicycle: Tren y Bicicletas en Barcelona
RTB003: COLLSEROLA TOTAL
64,5 km – 1350 m
This route will guide you from our shop on Valencia street to the peak of Collserola. On this route you will have to overcome two peaks and the first one is “Forat del vent” “wind hole” in Catalan. On the way up, you will have great views of the city of Barcelona. Once you our at the top, it’s all downhill until you arrive to the city of Sant Cugat. At this location you will be able to buy food, beverages or stop for a coffee. As we mentioned before in the last track description in Sant Cugat, if you are done pedalling you have the option to grab a train back to Barcelona.
From Cerdanyola, the track will guide you to Sant Cugat, where you will take the road that goes up to Tibidabo. At the top of Tibidabo, its almost a mandatory stop to observe the beauty of the city of Barcelona from the above.
You will resume the ride and you will descend to Barcelona, where the track will make you cycle through streets until you get back to our store.
RTB011: NORTH COAST. PARPERS CLIMB
75,5 km – 718 m
This route will take you along the north coast of Barcelona along the road that runs parallel to the sea and, after crossing a pleasant peak, will bring you back to Barcelona from inland.
After leaving our premises in Barcelona, you will go to find the Diagonal, which will take you out of Barcelona and take the road that follows the coast through the Maresme region. The link between the exit of Barcelona and the entrance to the coast road is not quite easy so you should pay attention to the GPS.
Once the exit of Barcelona is over, the track will take you along the N-II road that runs parallel to the sea. It is a fairly busy road for cyclists since it is the only flat road around here, so whoever wants to ride a flat route has no alternative.
At Vilassar de Mar you will head inland to climb the only peak of the day: the Coll de Parpers. This peak has no more than 3 km and slopes of 4-5% so it can be overcome without great difficulties (always depending on the pace you want to set). The descent, on the other side of the mountain, is bleak so in colder times or if it has rained, extreme caution must be taken when cornering.
Then, on the road we call de la Roca, which runs parallel to the mountains, the track will return you to Barcelona from inland and, one in Barcelona, back to our place.
