Although the service is only for the use of Barcelona’s citizens, the bike lanes, which stretch to more than 100 km, may be used by anyone with a bike, whether their own or a rental.
There are many places renting bikes these days in the city, but the majority are concentrated in the old quarter (Ciutat Vella).

A pleasant bicycle trip can be had by following the city’s coastline and taking in that part of the city that enjoys sea views, from Villa Olímpica to the site of Forum 2004.
A good starting point is from the end of Carrer de la Marina at the base of the two tower blocks that house the Hotel Arts and the offices of Mapfre. From here one can follow the seafront north to the site of the Forum and return the same way. The total distance is about 8 km.
The trip is especially pleasant on summer evenings as the sun sets.
