Barcelona Bike Week – 2012
The Barcelona Bike Week is a city wide celebration of the joy of riding bikes in Barcelona. Held from June 13th – 17th, 2012 Barcelona Bike Week should be a fun and interesting event for locals and tourists alike.
The main event area will be around the Arc de Triumf and the bottom of Passeig de Sant Joan. There is a full list of events including bike expos, a used bike market, training courses, a bike inspection station, a large group bike ride through the city and much more. Even if you don’t live in Barcelona the Barcelona Bike week is worth checking out and will be a lot of fun – rent a bike and join the group bike ride through the city, cruise through the Arc de Triumf area and see the bike expo and used bike market, go to the park del Forum and watch the bike show.
Barcelona is a very biker friendly city and Biking Barcelona is an excellent way to experience Barcelona and see all the amazing sites. There is a beautiful boardwalk – perfect for a mellow bike ride – that runs for several kilometers along the beach and the city is crisscrossed with bike lanes and low traffic streets perfect for mellow worry free bike rides.
