Pedal at your own unhurried rhythm. If you want to go on an excursion with the family, you won’t find a better experience than cycle touring along a green way. Green ways are safe, sustainable, and reserved for cyclists and walkers.
Catalonia has seven green ways offering impressive views. In addition, you can always combine biking with a good lunch or a cultural visit.
You can take the Ruta del Ferro i del Carbó disused "iron and coal" railway route (from Ripoll to Ogassa) and the Ruta del Carrilet and the Via del Tren (one route from Olot to Girona and another from Girona to Sant Feliu de Guíxols).
Discover and watch birds like never before and enjoy a privileged natural environment on the Ruta del Baix Ebre (along the Ebro river) and take advantage of your bike ride to make a stopover and get to know the architectural heritage of Balaguer or Agramunt on the Ruta de la Terra Alta, or take a tour of the mountain passes and sierras of Pàndols and Cavalls.
If you still want more green ways, the (unmade) routes of the Llobregat and Vall Fosca are also recommended and offer a little more adventure.
In addition, Catalonia has a load of cycle touring networks, like, for example, the one of the Baix Empordà and of the Terres de Lleida, where you can tour the Segre basin and the plains of Ponent. If you head towards the Terres de l'Ebre, you can set off from Montblanc and reach the mouth of the Ebro. If you live near Barcelona and you don’t fancy going too far, the Serra de Collserola Natural Park has loads of tracks on offer suitable for cycling.
