Introduction:
Penedes Wine Country Weekend Bike Tours
Deserted back roads link the small villages of Southern Catalunya and provide a window into the unique world and way of life of historic wine country.

You stay in comfortable casas rurales, some of them are snug, some are enormous, all are close to the land.

Easy going cycling with plenty of breaks to absorb the atmosphere and perhaps a wine or two, with a variety of interesting options for lunch.



Penedes Wine Country Weekend Bike Tours
Alt Penedès, Barcelona´s quiet back garden and our base for the last 11 years. Rolling roads and lanes through the vineyards and wineries of the most innovative wine region of Spain. Vilafranca del Penedès in the centre of the valley is a busy market town and hosts the largest farmers market in Catalunya. Vilafranca is also home to the Castellers Verds, The human tower champions of Catalunya.



Penedes Wine Country Weekend Bike Tours
The valleys of Penedès and La Conca de Barbera are crisscrossed by quiet lanes and ancient trade routes that have been by passed by modern roads. The landscape is rolling with very few obstacles. You will be traveling through one of the truly undiscovered parts of Spain with a wealth of nature, history and culture. We use fully equipped Decathlon b-Twin tour bikes on well paved minor roads. New laws introduced in 2005 make helmets compulsory on public roads in Spain.
