Best bikes in the city
Established in 2010, Green Bikes bring their brand new fleet of bicycles to Barcelona for your pedalling pleasure. These steel-framed, three-speed machines offer an extremely comfortable and reliable ride around town, and are the perfect way to explore Barcelona’s treasures, from Gaudi’s magnificent La Sagrada Familia to the sandy beaches. The braver cyclist can even head uphill up the Passeig de Gracia and all the way over to Park Guell – although these days you need to buy a ticket to access the park.
Costing just 2 euros an hour Green Bikes’ rental prices are the cheapest in town, and as well as their standard cycle you can also hire mountain bikes, folding bikes and BMXes. They are also one of the only bike rental firms in Barcelona to offer overnight rentals, which can be an extremely convenient option for many travellers.
Find them in the centre of the Gothic Quarter (hint: click on our map for precise location!).
