Where to Bike with Montague: Barcelona

Montague Bikes wants to promote the growing global cycling culture by providing new information on where to ride with Montague. Barcelona was named by Askmen.com as the eighth best biking city in the world! Their reasons? The “green ring” that runs around the perimeter of its urban core. “This bike path is peppered with 100 different bike stations as part of Barcelona’s bike -haring program, allowing riders to rent and drop off at different locations. Point-to-point user mobility has been a major push here,” their article explains.

Bike Barcelona

Barcelonabiking.com makes it so easy to navigate around Barcelona if you do not own a bike or are just visiting for a few days. Available in English and Castellano, it caters to natives and tourists who want to experience Barcelona face-to-face on a bike. Renting a bike in Barcelona is relatively inexpensive with prices ranging from 5 euros for an hour to 25 euros for two days. After this second day, though, each additional day is only 7 euro so it evens out in the end. BarcelonaBiking offers city, road, and mountain tours in addition to bike rentals.

Of course, with your Montague folding bike, traveling around Barcelona is easy! The Paratrooper is perfect for exploring Barcelona’s trail riding, and the Navigator or Crosstown provide the perfect way to get around the city and safely store your bike since the bike racks are very often full!

Beaches of Barcelona

The beaches in Barcelona are incomparable. The Bogatell boasts stone walkways perfect for walking, jogging, or cycling. Nova Icaria is always full of life and is lined with beach bars and restaurants for the night owls of Barcelona. Mar Bella, Barcelona’s only naturist beach, is tucked away behind a “wall” of rustling bamboo and provides the opportunity for kayaking, wind surfing (lessons available), and a peaceful park where beach goers can picnic or relax in the shade under a palm tree. Barceloneta provides many “American-style” restaurants with wooden board walks as well as the very popular Catalan restaurant, Agua. Head out of town for less-crowded and cleaner beaches, especially with small children. Trains run to beaches both North and South of Barcelona and a Montague Bike is the perfect train partner!

Finding affordable hotels in Barcelona is easy! Whether one of the luxury hotels in the heart of the city (mostly near the Olympic Village) or a more affordable room on the outskirts of the city, your stay and travels in Barcelona are sure to be an amazing experience.

A few months ago, a group of my friends visited Barcelona and found not bikes, but Scooters to rent. They had a blast and made this video. If I didn’t convince you before, I hope this will help show what everyone is so crazy about:
