Where to rent a bike for the Triathlon?

by christine.j

My son will visit Barcelona in October to take part in the Triathlon. He doesn't want to bring his own bike. Can anyone recommend a good bicycle shop to rent a racing bike? I found one member tip about Bike Rental Barcelona, but it seems this shop rents mostly folding bikes or mountain bikes.
Does anybody know of another place to rent a bike?

Thank you for any information.

Hi Christine, you will always struggle to find a good racing bike anywhere. I have seen someone asking the same question in a Spanish forum but cannot get to the page.

However, by googling I found this page which says that they rent racing bikes:

Sissi, thank you very much. I'll pass the information on to my son. It may be better for him to bring his own bike, I think.I wouldn't want to go looking for a bike shortly before a race.

Re: Where to rent a bike for the Triathlon?

I would not try to hire a bike for a race - and this is not for the hurry and the stress. Bikes that are ridden by different people all the time are never as good as your own bike. Race bikes are like horses - very sensitive ;-) And the athletes are, too.

You know, it does not matter on which bike we ride around a park or a little island, as time does not play a role, and the perfect seat position. But for a race you should get the best you can get. Especially as there is another leg of the race to do, and if you are already angry about the bike race, you surely do not run well.

I absolutely agree, Sissi. Even if it's some hassle bringing the bike on a plane, he'd be better off with his own one.
I have to leave for work, now - the train leaves in 20 minutes!

Travel Tips for Barcelona

Guell Park the real guard

by monica_pons

I can speak about Guell park during hours.
The last two years I have spent a lot of hours taking pictures and there is somebody that always is there, the real guard of the park.
I don't think that anybody can take more care of the park.

Restaurant prices

by rsilva

Unlike many other places in Europe, in Barcelona most restaurants do not state the prices including the VAT. The menu must clearly say if it is included or not (most of the times it is not).
Look for something like "7% IVA no incluído". Sometimes there is also a service or cover charge (generally expressed as a charge for bread in the menu).

Pack Your Peeler

by gilabrand

For those of you who don’t eat meat – and even for those who do, but don’t want to eat all your meals in restaurants when traveling - here’s a useful tip. I always pack a vegetable peeler, a small sharp knife, a few forks and spoons and a plastic bowl in my suitcase when I travel. A small can opener also comes in handy (although cans with pop-tops are common nowadays). Make sure not to put these items in your hand luggage so you won’t set off any metal detectors at the airport…Some local fruits and vegetables, yoghurts and cheeses picked up at a grocery - and you’re all set.

Aphrodisiacs: GINSENG

by FruitLover

"In 1957, Dr Bekhman, a Russian chemist, undertook a revision of the main pharmacological, biological and chemical studies on GINSENG, saying that the GINSENG from Korea possesses a clear tonic effect and a stimulating action on the central nervous system, increasing the capacity of the human being in his physical relationships.....
......
The stimulation of the libido by the Ginseng seems to follow an indirect route that goes via the brains' central neurones".

heaps of flowers and plants

by call_me_rhia about rambla de Sant Josep

it's not a shop, it's a portion of the Rambla, one of the pedestrian streets of Barcelona. In this part flower dot the pavement - in fact it's locally known as the "rambla de las flores". In the past this was the place where there was a huge flower market - a tradition that, in smaller scale, has been preserved until today flowers, all sorts of flowers the usual average price for flowers
