    Itinerary
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Pass By: El Born, La Ribera, Ciutat Vella, 08003 Barcelona Spain

    See another side of Barcelona on a half-day alternative bike ride. Unlike standard bike tours of the city, on this one you’ll not only be learning about Barcelona, you’ll be living it too!

    Pass By: El Poblenou, Barcelona Spain

    Search out the best patatas bravas in the city, discover obscure but beautiful attractions such as the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau and the amazing neoclassical cemetery of Poblenou, and maybe stop for a game of ping pong under the shade of the palm trees near Marbella beach.

    Pass By: L'Eixample District, La Exaimple -- Center City, 08011 Barcelona Spain

    This activity is not about seeing the major sights and hearing facts you could read in a guidebook, it's all about heading out on your bike to parts of the city that many locals don't even know about! No 2 tours are the same, but the cool experiences that await you include visiting a recycled fashion workshop, eating organic food at a squat, dipping churros into hot chocolate with the locals, and shopping for vintage threads at Gracia and Carrer Tallers.

    They were very flexible where we went and would adapt to what the group wanted. We took a backpack. Plenty chances for photo stops.

    Not sure if this will help answer your question, but the bike shop where you meet is in the Gothic Quarter and within a 5 minute walk of a Metro (just can't remember the name of the stop or the line).

    If they take the same route that they took me on, they will actually ride from the Gothic Quarter back toward your hostel. We rode from the Gothic Quarter past the Arc de Triumf and toward Placa de Cataunya. It actually... More
