The Barcelona Tibidabo MTB Tour is a guided bike tour that skirts a good part of the Sierra de Collserola, Barcelona's largest mountain. It offers magnificent views of the city, and it is our most demanding half-day MTB route. 

This MTB route around Barcelona will indulge even the most experienced riders. It demands both good technical skills and top physical condition. And of all of our half-day routes around Barcelona, it is the most culturally oriented.

After meeting at our starting point, Club de Tenis Valldoreix (you can opt to use our transport from the Barcelona city centre), we will adjust our bikes, you will be given a short briefing of the route and some basic safety rules... and then off we go!

We will begin on one of the few paved sections of the route, which will take us to the Torre Negra rural park, located in Sant Cugat, where we will ride by the Pi d'en Xandri, a pine tree that is over 230 years old! From here we will ride along tracks and trails towards Can Borrell, a typical Catalan masia, or country house, which at one time received peasants after the harvest, travellers from Barcelona to Sant Cugat and pilgrims making their way to Sant Medir. Now it is a meeting point for cyclists who stop to refuel on the local gastronomy.

After a few kilometres on spectacular off-road trails we will visit the Sant Medir hermitage, a beautiful Romanesque shrine which dates back to the year 962. From here we will climb the mountain from which our route takes its name: the Tibidabo, the highest summit in the Sierra de Collserola (512 m). Here we will find the architecture that comprises one of the classic Barcelona skylines, with the Sagrat Cor church (inspired by the Sacré-Coeur Basilica in Montmartre, Paris), the amusement park and the Torre de Collserola, a unique tower designed by the architect Norman Foster. From here we will enjoy jaw-dropping views of the city.

We will then ride down the Trialera de los Bomberos (the Fireman's Singletrack, so called because of the fire station along the way), which is a technical descent over uneven terrain with numerous cave-ins, exposed tree roots and loose rocks.

We will come out onto the wide track known as Carretera de les Aigües, extensively used by locals to practise numerous sports. We will ride up several steep inclines and meet up with a technical singletrack. In this section of the Barcelona Tibidabo MTB tour we will again have to make use of our technical skills, particularly if the ground is wet, as we will come across slippery tree roots. Finally, we will head west, with the Llobregat River (southernmost limit of the city of Barcelona) on our left, to return to our starting point.
