If you’re on a cycle holiday, the last thing you want is to leave your bike chained up outside your hotel – or to find nowhere to wash your gear or repair a puncture. Happily, Catalonia is blessed with plenty of places that go all out to give you complete peace of mind.
You will find cycle-friendly accommodation with safe storage, flexible mealtimes, a workshop, and an area for cleaning – even larger rooms so that you can actually have your bike with you while you sleep! There are also specialist firms offering bike and luggage transfers.
Seal of approval
To guarantee the quality of Catalonia’s bike-friendly accommodation, there are various quality seals that certify their commitment to cycle tourism.
More than 60 hotels or lodgings carry the Cycling in Catalonia label which are backed by the Catalan Tourist Board as being especially bike-friendly accommodation. Other labels: Bed & Bike in the Costa Brava and the Catalan Pyrenees (Girona counties) and Bikefriendly in all the territory.
