On one hand, being limited by the sea, the mountain and two rivers that flank it has never been able to grow too much in extension, this allows that from any point of the city you can leave in about 20-30 minutes. This feature makes it ideal for single-day departures since transportation is not required to start routes. On the other hand, the temperate waters of the Mediterranean soften the atmospheric temperatures making cycling possible throughout the year.
Our guides certified by "The Consell Català de l'Esport" plan along with the route according to the demands of the client.

Collserola is the mountain that dominates the city, with its 505 meters of altitude its calm roads add up slope while offering us beautiful panoramic views of the surroundings.
