Road cycling tours for serious lycra lovers
Bike tours are fashionable in Barcelona these days, but if you’re an avid cyclist, there’s only team to turn to… and that’s the folk at Montefusco Cycling.
Led by Claudio, a local cyclist with 25 years experience of pedalling all over Europe’s best landscapes, Montefusco specialise in high end road cycling, offering both tours and bike hire. Their bikes all have carbon frames and ten gears, and you can collect them from a number of affiliated bike stores in Barcelona (and in fact all around Catalonia) or they can deliver them to your hotel, the airport… you name it.
And whilst you’re welcome to go it alone, take a look on their website at the six different day tours they offer around Barcelona and Catalonia, with guide. Their Barcelona tour really does cover the whole city… you’ll travel 70km along bike lanes, roads and riverside tracks and take in everything from La Sagrada Familia to the velodrome.
Alternatively head out of the city to the likes of the sacred Montserrat mountain or in the wonderful Penedes wine region.
Looking for a multi-day Catalonia cycling holiday with guide, baggage transport and team car? Montefusco organise several throughout the year, including even to San Fermin (Running of the Bulls!) via the Pyrenees.
In short, if you’re serious about cycling, check them out.
