We've done bike tours with other outfits and can truly say Claudio stands with the best! Booking was a simple process and communications prior to the date of the ride were prompt and clear. He picked us up on the day of the ride at precisely the previously communicated time, and his bikes/gear were all ready to go. He supplied well-tuned, high-performance road bikes and had multiple frame sizes available. They were a joy to ride.

Our group (myself and adult sons) had riders of different fitness levels, and he led the ride with that in mind. He is able to adapt the course to meet the conditions of the day. His knowledge of the roads was excellent and he provided plenty of advance notice of tricky spots and safety issues.

We enjoyed talking with him over lunch about Catalonia, cycling history, Barcelona, travel, and other topics. He was a pleasure to be with and simply a really nice guy! I would highly recommend his tour to anyone wishing to do a great hills ride around Barcelona and see the fantastic vistas along the way!

March 2022. Today I rode with Claudio on the Hill Around Barcelona. it was a great experience and I would highly recommend riding with him.
First, Claudio's communication before and during the tour was great. His English is excellent.
Second, he was ontime and provided a few things I either didn't want to bring (helmet) or forgot to bring (sunglasses).
Next, Claudio was very good about customizing my ride b/c we had emailed previous to my trip about what I was looking for. In the end, we did precisely 50km with 2300+ feet of elevation in around 2.5 hrs.
Claudio is personable and we had good conversations about culture, children and business.
Thank you Claudio for your service today. I hope some of my friends will come to Barcelona and ride with you!

I had a great tour with Claudio around the hills surrounding Barcelona! It was just the right amount of challenging and great views and great roads. - he also had no issues doing all the work at the front : ). Claudio is also a top top guy, offering insights into Barcelona sights and culture, as well as chats about pro cycling, Spanish politics and football. A great day!

I was quite anxious about taking this cycle on, but I had always wanted to take on the challenge. Claudio is a class act. The man knows what he is doing. I was wrecked after the cycle, but filled with a great sense of achievement. El tío es todo un profesional y además súper simpático.

Best 4 hrs spent in all my trips to this beautiful city! Claudio has an amazing service and if you’re a weekend warrior or any type of cyclista visiting Catalonia, you will find something that fits your riding habit and level with Claudio. We did a couple of climbs including the classic climb up to Tibidabo. All capped by a fantastic lunch at the Eroica restaurant. I can’t wait to be back

As a group of four, 3 of whom were visiting Spain for the first time, this was a great introduction to cycling in Catalunya.

From the very start, communication was excellent (and available in at least 3 languages!)

We were interested in bike hire for 3 of the 4 people and a guided ride for day one of our week long cycling vacation.

The quality of the bikes was excellent and very competitively priced, especially when you consider the quality. Claudio even changed the rear cassettes to make hill climbing a bit easier for us...!

We chose the Penedes tour, and also opted for lunch and the Torres wine tour. We were picked up at our apartment in central Barcelona and driven out to the hills for our starting point. Claudio helped us set up the bikes, including fixing pedals and saddles that we had brought with us. We then set off (at quite a pace on the initial flat section!) and headed off into the countryside. Claudio is obviously very proud of his country and was very happy to share information with us as we rode. When we hit the hills he made sure that the pace was appropriate, so that no-one got left behind. A few weary hours later, we were back at the starting point, in fact our lunch time engagement.

What followed was a very typical Catalan menu, on which there was plenty of choice, including being able to cater for one of our party who was lactose intolerant. We had a very nice lunch with generous wine included in the price we had paid in advance.

Then on to the Torres wine tour which was well organised and informative.

At the end of what felt like a long day, we then set off back for central Barcelona.

Even though we had only booked the one guided ride with Claudio, he generously shared route gpx files for other routes an we did the Costa Brava ride un-guided later in the week.

I can't speak highly enough about the friendly, professional, understated approach from Claudio, and I would heartily recommend him to anyone considering cycling in or around Barcelona.

Claudio set up an awesome day for us and everything was planned to the detail. He picked us up from our hotel promptly, brought up bikes, and any other item we asked for (helmets, shoes, whaterbottles) and then we headed off to the ride location. The ride itself was beautiful, empty well paved roads. Claudio listened to our group's needs and make sure the ride made everyone happy. Also lunch was a great way to end the ride, we recommend you do it!

Riding with Claudio around the hills of Barcelona was a great pleasure. Not only the city is beautiful, by the sea and with hills but the cycling infrastructure is almost perfect: smooth lanes, polite drivers and perfect terrain. On top of all that Claudio is a great host, always making sure his guests were ok and enjoying the ride. Overall, it couldn't be a better experience.
