We rented 3 bikes to go around in Barcelona. The staff was very helpful (route suggestion, a city map is provided, tips for securing bicycles). The bikes are in perfect condition and easy to use. And it’s not expensive. Very satisfied, I recommend Born Bike Tours.

We rented bikes from BBB twice to tool around by ourselves (no tour), and both times the staff was helpful, quick to make adjustments and eager to help us navigate the city. Bikes were in good shape and comfortable, prices were right. Ernest the owner was a great source of historical info about Barcelona and Catalunya-fantastic conversationalist!

The best way to see a City. We managed to get a guide for just the two of us, organised extremely well by Ernest and his great girl in the shop with perfect English. Our guid had an enormous knowledge and good sense of humour. Fantastic 3 hours and the bikes were very comfortable.

Doing a bike tour around Barcelona was a highlight. You do not need to be a great biker but to get the best experience you should be a confident one. There are bike lanes for the majority of the tour, hitting a lot of great cites, but there are a lot of people and bikes sharing the areas and so you want to feel comfortable getting on and off easily. I thought the tour guide was lovely and helpful and the staff very accommodating. Would highly recommend and would do it again!

My partner and I rented the tandem bike from Bornbike last week. When we signed it out it looked like it hadn't been maintained for a while but we trusted the guy in the office as he was very helpful and knowledgeable.

A few miles into our ride the chain snapped in 2 (we were cycling uphill on a main road so this was quite a scary experience, especially when riding in a new country). We called them to report the problem in the hope that they would either be able to collect it from us and send us a replacement, or we could lock it up for them to collect it the next day but they point blank refused, saying that we had to take the bike back to their office on the metro or we wouldn't get our ID back, and would offer some compensation for the time we'd lost of our holiday. I'd like to point out that this bike was around 2 meters long and really heavy, so of course we weren't allow to take the bike on the metro.

Once we'd walked the 2 hours back to the office with the bike, we were offered no compensation. I am absolutely appalled at the sheer lack of concern over safety, quality of the product and customer service from a company so highly rated on Trip Advisor. Do not trust them.

For the attention of @Anywherewego and @Rubi4433, Please know that the tandem was used the day before and it was in perfect condition when you rented it, as you could have seen. So, perhaps, the chain of the tandem broke due to a misuse from your part. Besides we have the bikes serviced by mecanicians regularly, so that we can guarantee the quality and the security of our equipment. Moreover, there was never a blackmail from our part. Let me please clarify that you signed the contract, and accepted the rental Terms and Conditions, which clearly state that the rented equipment has to be brought back to our office. Please, also know that the contract specifies that you are responsible of the equipment when you rented, and as a consequence you have to pay for the damage that occurs. Though, we did offer a compensation, as we didn't charge you the price of the reparation and the rental. The travel from Montjuic to our shop doesn't last 2 hours, and bikes are allowed in the metro, as you can check here : http://www.transportebcn.es/GEN/articulo/normas.html "El acceso de bicicletas Bus: Solo se permite el acceso de bicicletas plegables. En el metro se permite el acceso de bicicletas los sábados,domingos y festivos. y todos los días de los meses de julio y agosto. Los laborables del resto del año, de 5:00 a 7:00 h, de 9:30 a 17:00 h y de 20:30 h hasta el cierre de las instalaciones." We deeply regret that you had a bad experience with us. We have always worked like we do and in 6 years, we have never experienced a incident like this one. We will continue to work with the objective that our clients leave Barcelona happy and with good memories of the city, as we have always did. Sincerely.

Based on the reviews on here, I hired a tandem bike from Born Bike. The gentleman that assisted was indeed very helpful and advised on the routes to take.

Unfortunately whilst half way up the road to the Olympic Park, our chain snapped completely in two. It's obvious this bike was neglected as it was a matter of a few miles in to our ride.

I was then blackmailed in to bringing the bike back by metro, otherwise I wouldn't get my ID back. They wouldn't allow me to lock it up with the TWO locks for them to collect it at a later date.

That was our last day in Barcelona and suffice to say I'm giving them 1 star as I won't get those last few hours of my life back. Avoid.

We contacted a few bicycle rental shops and this one was very reasonable . We paid €32 for three full days . The bicycles came with lights and chains but no helmets or front basket. The bikes had gears and were very easy to use. The seats were comfortable and very easy to change heights. The shop is easy to find and the staff were extremely helpful. Would certainly recommend hiring from them.

We chose Bornbike because we needed a tandem bike for my husband and son and they seemed to be the only Barcelona bike tour company that offered one. However it was an excellent choice because we had a terrific experience. After some discussion with us, the guide adjusted the tour to take us places that he thought we would like (and he was right) and that suited our fitness level, rather than sticking to a set agenda. He did a terrific job of choosing alleyways in the old town that weren't too crowded. We felt we got an excellent sense of Barcelona's history and geography. I particularly enjoyed cycling past the beaches and through the Parc de la Citudella.
