Folding bikes make for the ideal Barcelona Experience
We like to keep in touch with the folding bike community around the world, and social media is just perfect for that. It was on twitter we came across this cool company running tours of Barcelona, using none other than DAHON folding bikes to offer the best insight and an ‘up close and personal’ view of this beautiful city. James Duren of Barcelona Experience explains:
“At Barcelona Experience it’s important for us to offer to our private tour clients easy-to-use bikes that give them peace of mind and a thrilling ride. We chose Dahon’s Vitesse bikes – we have a few Roos, too – because they meet these criteria. The bicycles are made of high-quality materials that guarantee our clients will have a smooth ride through the backstreets and main roads of Barcelona. We love how easy they are to unfold and adjust. If a client needs their seat a bit higher, it only takes a few seconds to make the adjustment. The same goes for the alignment and height of the handlebars. The Vitesse’s foldability also makes it easy for us to transport our bikes from place to place. We also really enjoy the maneuverability of our Dahon bikes. They´re the perfect size for navigating the narrow streets of Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter and El Born districts. Furthermore, the seven gears available to our clients accommodate all fitness levels. Our fleet of Dahons are part of our private bike tours of Barcelona.We offer bike tours for: the Gothic Quarter/waterfront, Barcelona’s parks and gardens, Gaudi’s famous sites, the mountain of Montjuic as well as tailor-made tours that include multiple sites in one day. Each of our bike tours offers our clients an overview of Barcelona’s history, specific discussions about the areas through which we ride, a dialogue between guide and rider as well as the unmatched personalized experience of a private tour. Riding a bicycle allows our clients to see many significant attractions and sites in a short amount of time. Barcelona boasts a well-organized bike path system that makes riding a bike through the city a safe adventure. We also believe that riding a DAHON folding bike is an experience in itself.”
So if you’re traveling to Barcelona and new to folders, or just left your DAHON at home, drop them a line. You can also find Barcelona Experience on facebook and twitter.
