About Steel Donkey Bike Tours
Steel Donkeys are the first and only alternative bike rides of Barcelona. We're not about dry historic facts and the same daily routines that characterise other mass market bike tours. We're about getting on a bike and exploring the hidden corners of the city, like flea markets, futuristic skyscrapers, vintage shops, secret courtyards and local beaches... Our guides are young, knowledgeable locals who were either born in Barcelona or have lived here for several years. We like to talk about the real experience of life in the city, modern politics, culture and stories. But most of all we like to have a fun relaxing day out on a bike with our new friends... you! We ride with a maximum of 8 people, offering a more personal experience, greater mobility and sustainability (as this way we don't contribute to the congestion of mass tourism). When you ride with us you'll never feel like just another tourist on the treadmill. Hope to see you soon in Barcelona!

I recommend that you take this tour if you want to see the non-touristy parts of Barcelona. You will ride through neighborhoods and along the coast. You will make some stops along the way and the tour guide (mine was Edu) will tell you about...More

Edu was our excellent local guide for the bike tour. During the 4 hour bike tour we covered nearly 14 km - it was all flat and easy biking. Much of it on bike lanes. We did not see any of the "classic" sites -...More

Not sure. I prefer to ride alone. We went on a tour with 10 friends. Had a ball!
