Fat Tire Bike Tour of Barcelona

montjuic e bike tour fat tire bike tours

Seeing as we had such a fun time exploring Amsterdam by bike, Charles and I knew we had to explore Barcelona in the same way! It’s a great way to cover more distance while exploring a city without exerting as much energy one would if traveling by foot.

 

A quick search on the internet brought us to Fat Tire Bike Tours where we booked the Montjuic E-Bike Tour. E stands for electric as in an electric bike with a motor attached to assist with getting around the super hilly city. I would never have been able to ride up the steep inclines without the help of my bike’s motor providing a little boost with each pedal push.

 

Our e-bike tour was thorough… A whole whopping 4 hours was spent exploring parts of Barcelona we would’ve have missed out seeing if we hadn’t booked this tour. We rode through Placa D’Espanya (one of Barcelona’s biggest squares), basked in the Palau Nacional’s presence (a palace turned art museum), explored the Olympic Stadium and Palau Sant Jordi (these massive sporting venues were for the 1992 Olympics that was hosted in Barcelona) allllll while taking in the wonderful city views as we climbed higher and higher by bike.

 

When we finally made it to the highest point of the tour, we were told that it was time to coast allllll the way down the other side of the super steep hill we had climb. Zooming down the hill was such an adrenaline rush!!!! Unfortunately, we don’t have any footage of the descent because our go-pro died but it was ah-mazing… Kind of reminded of that one time I went skydiving… A free-falling kind of feeling where there is no option but to be 100% percent present.

 

Anyways, enough writing… Photos from our ah-mazing tour await :)

We completed the last leg of our descent through the The Cactus Garden of Montjuic before heading to the Fat Tires bike shop to return our e-bikes. Afterwards, we stopped by a convenient store near our Airbnb accommodations to grab some of their local Estrella beer. Purchase made, we trekked up our Airbnb’s staircase to the roof top terrace and unwound for a little bit, while taking in the views, before showering and getting ready for our last dinner in the city.

After two great experiences with bikes tours in Europe, Charles and I have decided to make a point of going on more bike tours since we really enjoy the activity. A bike and/or segway tour of D.C. is actually on our “resident tourist to-do list” for this summer. Anyone interested in riding along? Hit me up. We’re thinking of doing it sometime in the month of July. :)

Linking Up with Travel Tuesday and Random Wednesday.

 

  • I’ve always thought biking would be the perfect way to explore European cities, and these posts confirmed my thoughts. Your photos look great!

    • Thanks Disa!!! And yes, biking is the best way to go! There must be some bike tours offered around Atlanta???

      • The thing about Atlanta is that it’s soooo spread out, making it not the best city to explore by bike. There are options around downtown, though. So I can definitely plan something if you guys ever visit (hint, hint, wink, wink).

        • Haha! “Hint, hint, wink, wink” = noted :)

  • we didn’t bike barcelona and we should have- we just walked EVERYWHERE. looks like an incredible time. your pics are always on point.

    • We walked everywhere in Paris and were sooooo pooped and tired after each day. Biking really helped us to see more without feeling so tired!

  • You two are the most adventurous couple I know!! You guys have seen more in the last few years than I will probably see in my lifetime!! I truly love reading your travel stories and seeing all the pics! And heck no to that free falling feeling…I would have FREAKED! :)

    • Thanks Shanna! That means alot!!! I’ve 2 more posts left before I’m done recapping our euro-trip but we’ve got more trips planned for this year once that is over! Maybe one day, we’ll find ourselves in Texas??? ;)

  • This is amazing. A bike tour is the best idea. A wonderful way to see everything. I would LOVE to do a bike/segway tour with you!!!! (can you put a little baby seat on the back?!) :)

    • Ahhhh yes! That would so much fun to do with you!!! I’m sure the bikes should have baby seats on the back… Hmmmm, let me look into it and let me know if or when you plan to be in the D.C. area! I would love to meet up, bike tour or not :)

  • This looks and sounds absolutely amazing and the motor probably made it even more enjoyable!

    • Oh yes, the e-bikes were everything! I don’t think I would’ve made it up the steep hills without it’s help haha.

  • Gorgeous photos! I think you’ll always have a better travel experience doing things on foot or bike as opposed to any other way. You see more and feel more involved in the day to day culture.
