Good bike rentals in Barcelona?
Posted August 11th, 2010 - 10:40 pm by from Saint Petersburg, Russia (Permalink)

I'm visiting Spain in August 21-27 and I like cycling. I entertain the idea of renting a bike and going somewhere around Barcelona with some of you local people I might meet.

Can you recommend a place in Barcelona where I can rent a bike, preferably a good one. Back there in Russia I have a hybrid bike which I don't take with me. Maybe I could rent a good road bike or mountain bike for a change?

Also can anyone be interested in joining me for a bike trip?

I will be staying in a hotel in Costa Brava. Are there good rentals over there too?

Kind regards,

Green Bikes (on Ataulf -- 8, I think?--, near Placa George Orwell) is a fantastic place that functions both as a bike rental and second hand bike store / repair shop, just opened a few months ago. I'd highly recommend them! Super nice and speak English, too.
