Valencia is a very bike-friendly city, and each year more and more locals use bikes as their usual means of transportation. Our own “Bike tour Valencia” is one of the most demanded to discover the town.
Riding a bike in Valencia is an easy, convenient and comfortable way to visit Valencia. It is advisable to visit the Old Town on foot and then ride the bike to the City of Arts and Sciences through one of the most beautiful areas in the city: The Turia Gardens, approximately 11 km of green areas to do sport, play with your kids and have a picnic or some tapas at one of the restaurants or bars within it.
The last stop in this “Bike tour Valencia” is the City of Arts and Sciences, the Valencian jewel of futuristic architecture built by Santiago Calatrava at the end of the 1990s.
We have a bike tour Valencia every Saturday morning starting in the Old Town to discover and explore Valencia. The approximate duration is three hours, and we suggest checking the starting time as it depends on the time of the year. We also organise bike tours in Valencia upon request for closed groups, so if you want a different visit to the city, this is a great option.
If after the bike tour Valencia you want to keep pedalling your way through Valencia,
you can make your excursion longer and reach the Parque de Cabecera, on the opposite side of the Turia Gardens, where you can visit the Bioparc or walk around the artificial lake. Another possibility is to go to the beach, where you there is a promenade with lots of restaurants where you can enjoy an authentic paella valenciana. But be mindful of the restaurant you choose. I recommend some I personally know, where you can have a nice meal: “Azahar”, “Caravelas” and/or “Tridente”, but make a reservation before you go, or you might find yourself without a seat.
If your prefer learning how to cook paella yourself, we recommend our paella cooking workshop.
My last suggestion to discover Valencia by bike is going to the Albufera Natural Park, approximately 14 km from the city centre, where you can enjoy a boat ride in a sweet water lake joined to the sea by a series of dunes. You can get to the Albufera with the EMT bus line 25. Check the EMT Valencia timetables.
The same bus stops also in El Palmar, an old fishing village that lives mainly on tourism today. You must not leave the place without trying the traditional “all i pebre”, a stew made with potato and eel. It is one of the gastronomic specialties I wholeheartedly recommend. If you prefer seeing live eels, you can visit the Valencia Central Market.
