From 10 to 16 May, bicycles will be playing a leading role in the city. And that’s because the ninth annual Bicycle Week is now on, under the slogan “Agafa la bici. Compartim cívicament la ciutat” [Take your bike. Let’s share our city in civic spirit].
The Bicia’t will be taking place on 12 May, giving the Catalan Cycling Club (BACC) an occasion to host a breakfast for people who cycle to work and turn up between 7.30 am and 10.30 am at the points located in Rambla de Catalunya-Diagonal, Diagonal-Provença, Zona Universitària, Lepant and Arc de Triomf.
Let’s not forget the Bike Show and the Bicycle and Skate Festival, organised by the Barcelona Sports Institute, at the Fòrum on 15 and 16 respectively. In addition to the usual activities, this year’s Bicycle Week also includes a refresher course on basic bike mechanics.
Another notable activity involves free loans of bicycles to encourage more people to get out on their bikes and realise they can cycle through the city. Other free activities will include a children’s bicycle circuit, Biciescola beginner’s bike courses, technical inspections etc. You will need to book for many of these activities.
