The Barcelona Montserrat MTB Ride is a circular route around Catalonia's unique Montserrat mountain which mirrors the route of the famous local La Portals ATB race. Do you want to feel the earthly power of this spiritual mountain? Sign up now and experience it!

The Barcelona Montserrat MTB Ride is a gift from heaven. Riding through this natural park with such a unique mountain in the background is an experience everyone should enjoy.

After meeting at the pick-up point in Barcelona (of which you will be notified in advance), we will take the SPINATURA vans to the starting point of this magnificent ATB route. Once there 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 start in Collbató and head north-west towards El Bruc, where we will begin our first long ascent, although the incline is not steep. In El Bruc we will begin the most imposing uphill slope on our route: 4.5 km which will take us from an altitude of 474 metres to 718 metres, the highest point on our Barcelona Montserrat MTB Ride. From here we can enjoy unique and panoramic views from this beautiful mountain. And if we are lucky, we may even spot one of the wild mountain goats that wander about this park perched atop one of the mountain spires.

From here we will begin a 12 km descent combined with a few slides which winds through Marganell, El Prat and Sant Cristòfol, and which will bring us to the lowest town on our ATB route, Monistrol de Montserrat (150 m above sea level). We will continue descending to 89 m above sea level, where we will reach the south-easternmost point on our Barcelona Montserrat MTB Ride, and then ride up a few slopes to return to our starting point.

90% of the Barcelona Montserrat MTB Ride is on technically accessible tracks and trails. Most uphill climbs have an incline of less than 10%, but they are long, so riders must be physically fit. 

Those of you interested in finding out a bit more about the mystery of nature enclosed in the mountain of Montserrat can visit the Benedictine monastery, located at an altitude of 720 m. The Montserrat Monastery houses the second-largest library in Europe, as well as what is considered one of the finest wine cellars in the world. Should we stay for a short tasting? ;-)

Once you have finished this MTB route in Barcelona, you will receive a personalised SPIN Report
