We haven’t remind you the advantages to ride a bicycle through the city for a while, could be possible that we have integrated it in our daily life? 

We have written 5 motives for helping you to join the pedaling movement.

Enjoy the pure air without contaminating it

We are arriving at the non-return point with the climate change. The bicycle is a way to fight against this fact and, in addition, it allows us to enjoy this clean air.

Moving quickly around the city

The bicycle is one of the quickest means of transport, when we are talking about short distances. If you don’t believe us, we challenge you to check it. Tomorrow, instead of adding yourself to the morning traffic jam, go to work by bicycle.

Move around in a safer way

The bicycle is a safe means of transport, especially, after the extension of the bike lane in Barcelona. Although, it is important for you to remember that you are not moving around alone, for keeping you safe, you should pay attention to the traffic signs, be visible and respect the other people who are also moving around the streets.

Don’t waste your money in gasoline

You are the fuel of your bicycle and, for sure, a healthy diet is cheaper than the gasoline of your car or motorbike. 

Save yourself the gym 

And talking about don’t wasting, using a bicycle daily, there will be no necessity of going crazy looking for time to go to the gym. You will practise exercise everyday.

The number of urban cyclists in Barcelona has an exponential growth thanks to the extension of the bike lane during these last years in Barcelona. The security that these lanes provide is translated in a lot of people who enjoy the advantages of moving around with this very sustainable vehicle.

Any person who has ridden a bike any time of his/her life will be realized that when you move the pedals backwards it’s useless. The bicycle has been designed for moving forward and if you need to go backwards you will have to do facing it, being fully aware of what you are doing and where we really want to go.

And, why is so interesting this consideration nowadays? Because in our 10 years of experience pedaling through the streets of Barcelona we feel astonished (in the good sense of this word) about how the kilometers of the bike lane in Barcelona have been so extended and, especially, how a lot of urban cyclists have leaped to take advantage of even the last signalized meter of lane.

The bicycle will continue advancing in Barcelona and it is going to do that in a conscious and safe way, transforming the city in a cleaner, more tranquil and more sustainable place each time.

The City Hall of Barcelona puts a new and updated bike lane map at your service.

Such as we have previously announced, Barcelona has decided to bet on the bicycle as the future vehicle. For this reason, there is an effort to improve the traffic safety that is relative to this means of transport. One of the improvements is the one related to the extension and the updating of the bike lane in Barcelona.

If you are thinking about spending a few days in the city, obviously, we advise you to use the bicycle. It is quick, easy for parking and it allows you to enjoy the city at the same time you are moving around. In addition, you will help to improve the pollution levels in the city, a very nice touch for people who live in the city and welcome you to it.

You can prepare different routes for all the days. In order to do it in a safe way, have a look at the updated bike lane map. You will quickly realize that almost no corner is out of range of being visited by bike.

¡Barcelona is almost ready to welcome, in a safe way, all the urban cyclists of the whole world!
