For a relaxing day trip out of Barcelona it doesn't get much better than this. The chance to pedal around sleepy back roads on a bike tour of the Penedes wine region of Catalonia, with its leafy vineyards and traditional villages, is a rare pleasure in itself, but combined with tours of the local wineries and Cava cellars - and of course the opportunity to taste the produce - makes for a memorable day out indeed. On this guided cycling tour of the Penedes you'll start at the regional capital of Vilafranca del Penedes and take in two first rate wineries, enjoy an a la carte lunch at a traditional restaurant and of course cover a fair bit of ground on the bikes as you traverse the Catalan countryside. The standard price is 125 euros and includes all the aforementioned, plus bike rental, guide and back up vehicle. For an extra 60 euros you can ask for transport from Barcelona, or else you can catch the train to Vilafranca easily enough from Sants Station. Email us at Barcelona Life for more info and/or to reserve a spot.
wonderful time with Paddy and the crew!!!
