We introduce to you the road bike rides of the TBT club for this February in Barcelona. As always, the group rides of the club are open and without any cost to all participants, so anyone who wants to join us will be welcome, either with their own bike or with one of our rental Canyon bikes. The dates of the rides are on February 2nd and February 16th and in both cases, it will start from our shop in Calle València 337 at 9:00 in the morning -punctual-. In both cases, the rides will be of medium distance, covering about 80km of distance and between 1200 and 1500 meters of accumulated climb.
On both rides there is the possibility to divide the group in two depending on the speed everybody wants to ride. There is the option of doing a fastest group and a calmer one. In both cases there will be people from the club who will guide the route.
- 2 february – Collserola
The route goes through the well-known mountain of Collserola and passes all its roads. Leaving the store, we’ll climb to Vallvidrera from where we’ll go down to La Floresta. There there’s a deviation which will guide us to the road of Molins de Rei across la Rierada. From there the route turns towards Barcelona and faces the climb to the highest point of the route, the Tibidabo. Once we have enjoyed the views that this watchtower of Barcelona offers us, we will descend to Sant Cugat and connect with Cerdanyola. Once at this point, we will start the last big climb of the day: the Forat del Vent. Going down towards Barcelona we will take the road to the cemetery to go towards Montcada i Reixac and make the last section by the Besòs river.
- 16 february – Begues
This ride goes to the south of Barcelona to face the rise of Begues. The route goes to Cornellà and Gavà from the climb to Begues starts (6.4km, 5.5%). Once the important climb of the day is completed, the route will go towards Olesa de Bonesvalls, from where the road climbs again until we are halfway to Vallirana. From Vallirana we will go to Molins de Rei to face the climb to La Creu d’Olordola that will put us on our way back to the store.
