València by bike: all its corners on wheels
If your favourite way of moving is on two wheels, welcome to Valencia. Our city is among the three most bike-friendly cities in Spain.
Every day thousands of people travel along 156 kilometres of cycle paths in Valencia. The climate and the low altitude make the trip very comfortable, so get your bike ready and get your legs ready because… we’re going on the road! We tell you the best way to visit Valencia by bike at your own pace or with a guide.
At your own pace and without timetables
Make a note of essential places to go. Start pedalling from the heart of the city, at this point you will find many ways to get a rental bike if you don’t have your own. Wander through its irregular streets, and discover the beauty of its architecture in places like the Cathedral of Valencia, or the Tower of Micalet. Before leaving the historic centre you must stop at the Torres de Serrano, from where you can see where your journey will continue.
We change gear to go into the lung of Valencia. We are talking about the River Turia Garden, more than nine kilometres of green areas where you can feel free. Following the course of the old river, we reach the end of the path and find a treasure, the City of Arts and Sciences. If your visit coincides with the last Saturday of the month we invite you to live a very special experience focused on cinema and architecture.
It’s time to get your strength back, without moving from the site you can try the Contrapunto Les Arts restaurant and enjoy a meal that will not leave you indifferent.
At the end of the route we give you two options to see the best of the sunsets: you can continue towards Pinedo beach and watch the sun fall from the sand, or if you prefer to continue cycling, l’ Albufera is a good option, seeing how the day ends from there is something magical and unique in Valencia.
With a guide
Many prefer to let themselves go, and walk around accompanied by specialized guides in the city. If this is your choice, we suggest you get to know Valencia with the best guides. The company offers more than a dozen different experiences, we stay with your private bike tour.
