My wife and I booked the e-bike rental over the internet, based on Travelocity reviews for June 3, 2012. We could not have been more pleased with Michela our guide and the e-bikes themselves.
First, about the bikes. We both are almost 60 years old and haven't ridden bikes in 20 years, but after about 2 minutes of practice, we were back up to speed again. As long as you move the pedals, the electric bikes give you power and as soon as you quit pedaling or put on brakes, the assist function automatically stops. It is almost intuitive. Gears give you the option to go slow or fast and to have power to go up the huge hills of Barcelona. Trust me, a regular bike would be no good here.
Michela, our guide, was knowledgable and spoke excellent English. I'm hard of hearing and had no problem understanding her. She speaks 4 languages, Italian, Spanish, French and English, so there is no barrier there. I understand that the other guides are great also, so you should be fine with any of them.
I usually shop around when making plans for trips, but go ahead and make your reservations for www.e-bikerent.com and you won't be disappointed.
Barcelona has great places to see and you will be able to go through many places other tours would never be able to get to in cars or vans. We loved it.
