Route around Barcelona
We are aware that we still have many places to visit in biker Spain, but we could not leave behind this city, so wonderful for its history, climate and landscape, as well as one of the European places with the greatest love and predilection for motorbikes.
Barcelona is a temple for motorcyclists and one of the cities in Europe with the most motorbikes. This city not only has a large number of motorbike lovers, but also has the good fortune to be able to enjoy unbeatable routes all over the surrounding area. Here you will find some of the most beautiful roads in Catalonia.
The route is not very long, only about 30 kilometres from the capital, but the most important thing is always the road, and especially the views that the road offers until you reach the Garraf Park, the whole Mediterranean Sea at your feet while you can enjoy the freedom of the motorbike. The Garraf Park is a natural area of more than ten thousand hectares, located between the regions of Baix Llobregat, Alt Penedès and Garraf. Once you arrive, you will have to leave your motorbike always protected and located so that you don’t have to ask for a taxi back, and once it is parked, you will have to walk through every metre of this marvellous place.
Ruta en moto por Madrid
If you are from Madrid you will surely know it, if you have ever passed through the capital of Spain it should ring a bell and if you have never been to the centre of the country, you have the perfect excuse to pack your bags and take a unique and very special trip on a motorbike.
