Is it worth sending the bike by plane?

Just a few numbers for your information. If you are coming to Barcelona by plane and you want to enjoy your passion: bicycle. If you send it by plane, average cost is 100,00 Euros (depending on the company, but 2013 prices are 50,00 Euros per flight in Ryanair, 75,00 Euros per flight in Iberia, 45,00 Euros per flight in Vueling). Furthermore you assume the risk of some accident during the transportation. Consider also the time to pack and unpack the bicycle.
Example: Cost of sending (and back) your bike by Ryanair: 100,00 Euros. Cost of renting your bike for 3 days in Montefusco Cycling: 90,00 Euros. And without risks, without losing your time.
When you come to Catalonia in general, Barcelona in particular, and you want to ride, then do not hesitate, rent a quality bicycle (carbon frame) in Montefusco Cycling. Your best choice.

Montserrat, the holy mountain for Catalan people, one of the greatest touristic attractions of our country. And also a real challenge to climb up there. Do you know that climbing here to rengrace the black Virgin of Montserrat (La Moreneta) is a classic among the catalan people? Do you want to pray for anyone or anything? Then you are in the right place.
Being self guided or with a guide (recommended) the views of the mountain are spectacular! Surrounding the mountain you can see different shapes, the mountain changes. An incredible experience. Do not miss it!!!
