Riding your electric bike is simple, but your guide will deliver a comprehensive safety briefing to put you at ease.Put on your helmet, and then pedal along the streets around Barcelona Cathedral (Cathedral of the Holy Cross and Saint Eulalia), one of the city’s Gothic masterpieces. Gaze in awe at the cathedral’s exterior to see the mythical gargoyle creatures that adorn the roof, and then continue past the Arc de Triomf. Hear how the monument was built for the 1888 Barcelona World Fair, and has since become one of the city’s most distinctive landmarks.After stopping for photos, cycle onward to La Monumental bullring to see where Barcelona’s traditional bullfights take place. Learn about the controversial sport that remains deeply ingrained in Spanish society, and then enter Barcelona’s central park: Parc de la Ciutadella.Cycle along the sheltered pathways that weave through the park, enjoying the tranquil surrounds, and head out onto the streets of El Born to see one of Barcelona’s most vibrant neighborhoods. Pass El Born Centre Cultural, home to a series of exhibits about life in the city in the early 18th century, before arriving at La Sagrada Familia.Park your bike and head past the crowds with your skip-the-line entrance ticket to enjoy roughly 1.5 hours of free time inside the UNESCO-listed cathedral. Make use of an audio guide if you wish, and hear how the famously unfinished monument is set for completion around 2026, in time for the centenary of its architect: the inimitable Gaudi.Having explored the cathedral, hop back on your bike and start cycling back to the start point with your guide. If time permits, enjoy a last photo stop outside two other Gaudi creations, the private houses of La Pedrera (Casa Milá) and Casa Batlló. Then, continue back to the bike shop where your tour finishes.
