This year, the 2019, as the Chinese lunar calendar says, is the Pig’s Year and it is going to start on the 5th of February. Because of that, taking advantage of the weekend, the Chinese community in Barcelona has decided to celebrate it this Sunday, the 2nd of February.

This fiesta, every year, has more and more followers and that’s because it offers a lot of performances and activities to the most elderly and to the youngest people. This year, in addition, they have a honorable Catalan guest: la Porca de Sant Antoni.

It is said that the personality of the pigs is characterized by their diligence, their indulgence and their generosity. It is an animal that when it starts something, then it has to finish that. Although it’s really easy to it to let itself be fooled. So, you should try to apply these qualities in order to resolve your daily challenges and let yourself be fooled every now and then, as long as it is for taking yourself to a great party, such as this one.

In Born Bike Barcelona, we are very happy, because this fiesta will be celebrated very close to us. The opening show will start at 11.30 a.m. in the Parc de l’Estació del Nord and the fiesta will continue the whole day in the Passeig Lluís Companys.

‘Interculturalize’ yourself enjoying this great fiesta in Barcelona!

¿Have you paid attention to the activities of these days in Barcelona? This week, we are preparing ourselves for the “Castanyada”

October 24th, 2017

Although the popular party is going to be celebrated at All Saints’ Day, the 1st of November, during this week, we will be able to enjoy some of the activities which will be celebrated on the occasion of this festivity. And the most important, we can stuff ourselves with chestnuts and “panellets”.

Maybe some people don’t know it yet, but the chestnuts, the fruit of the chestnut tree, are very typical in Catalonia, in special during their harvest season, which coincides with October and the beginnings of November. For this reason, in the middle of some streets, we can find the typical stand with the “castanyera” (the person who sells chestnuts), roasting chestnuts and selling them in a cone, made by a sheet of newspaper, and accompanied by roasted sweet potatoes. And, as far as we are concerned, at home, we have never achieved ones as good as the ones we bought in these stands.

On the other hand, these days, the “panellets” are also very typical. They are little cakes, make by a sweet dough, which contains: sugar, ground raw almond, egg and potato or sweet potato. There are the chocolate ones, the coconut, the candied fruit and, for us the best ones: the pine nut ones.

If these days you are in Barcelona, you can enjoy all the organized activities and taste some of these culinary delicacies. And, then? Going to pedal in order to burn all these sweets and being able to repeat 😉

Rueda, the international film festival about cycling in Barcelona returns one more year

October 5th, 2017

Among all the events which are taking place these last days in the city, we shouldn’t forget the importance of the bicycle and all the mobilization that goes with it. For this reason, we shouldn’t miss this festival.

Have you thought about disconnecting these next days? The best cultural suggestion that we have found is this festival about cyclist cinema in Barcelona, which will be celebrated from the 5th to the 8th of October.

This is not only an exposition and a competition of films, this is also a variety of activities for adults and children, which will induce us much more in this cultural space dedicated to the bicycle.

Discover unique cinematographic works with one common element: the bicycle. Connects with this style of life on another level. It will be one of the best trips that you will take with this vehicle.
