Why cycling is not incompatible with the best hotels.

There is an extended opinion that most of cyclists just need a very basic hotel for their cycling trips. If you are travelling to Catalonia to do some cycling, we can help you with any service you may need: route design (according to your needs), luggage transportation, hotel bookings, supporting car, etc. But the hotels we collaborate with are not basic hotels. Nothing to do with that.

In Montefusco Cycling we are proud of colaborating with the best hotels in the area. They are not basic hotels, definitely. They are hotels which you will enjoy your stay the same (o more) as your cycling trip. Once you get to your destination point you will be able to relax in a centric hotel (where possible!), with spa facilities, massage, etc. Food is obviously another key factor in our hotel selection. Long and tough stages need also some good food the night before!

Our experience during many years of cycling means a deep knowledge of catalan geography and supernice hidden hotels and special places to be. Old farmhouses converted into guest trendy houses, historic buildings with large luxury rooms, ancient hotsprings become spa resorts.

Our cycling trips are not only cycling trips.

Cruise stop activity in Barcelona
Let's go!! Our starting point, just beside the ship!

Barcelona has become one of the most popular cruise destinations all over the world. No need to say that Barcelona is one of the highlights in mediterranean cruises. Figures are huge, and growing!

At Sagrada Familia, probably the most famous place in Barcelona!
Let us suggest one of the best things you can do in Barcelona in a cruise stop if you are a sportsman/sportswoman. What do you think about discovering Barcelona from a different prospective, upon a bicycle? At the same time we can do a demanding route (about 60-80 km with 3-4 climbs). Not an easy route, indeed. But in this private tour we will lead you to the best roads close to Barcelona, in the countryside, and getting the best views over the city. All this at your own pace, we will adapt speed to your abilities, and being a private tour you won't have to be faster or slower than needed.

Barcelona is a large city, so we highly recommend to do this guided route, much more than trying to do it on your own. We will show you the best routes nearbby and the best way of getting out of the city.

Stop at Park Güell
In our tour we will show you iconic places, as Tibidabo mountain (the highlight of our trip!), or Sagrada Familia, Parc Güell or Hospital de Sant Pau (all of them, modernist works), but also the Olimpic Stadium in Montjuic or the FC Barcelona Stadium. Being a demanding route, when we go back to Barcelona our guide will lead you to the places you most would like to visit. Cycling in Barcelona is the best (and fastest) way to transport yourself. Cycling in Barcelona is great!

Our tour includes the carbon bike rental (you just need to bring your cycling shoes, although we can also provide some strapless toeclip pedals if you just brought your sneakers), the private guided tour, and also pick up/drop off at your dock, so we will begin cycling straight away! No need to worry about anything else but enjoying your day at Barcelona!
