Whenever we talk about cities where cycling is a suitable means of transport, it comes to our minds northern European cities such as Amsterdam or Copenhagen. However, it is precisely in the Turia capital where are the perfect conditions for touring the town with bicycles for rent in Valencia: an ideal climate and a totally flat city with a large number of gardens, bike lanes, and green corridors. You do not have any excuse to do some sport pedalling while visiting the corners of this Mediterranean jewel.
Get ready for the route
In this city almost every day is sunny, so before you start your tour, you should use sun cream and take a hat if you do not want to end up like a crab. It is also advisable to bring a bottle of water in the backpack. Whether you are going alone or with friends, going to a bike rental shop in Valencia to get bicycles for rent in Valencia, is one of the best options.
We suggest you start your tour at the historic center where are located the largest number of unique buildings such as the Miguelete, Santa Catalina, the Cathedral, the Palau de la Generalitat or the Church of San Nicolás. With your bicycles for rent in Valencia ride through the La Paz street and get into Marqués de Dos Aguas street, where you will find the imposing Palace of the same name; a Rococo, baroque building with an impressive alabaster facade. Make a stop to take photos and, if you have time, go into the building, which is the National Museum of Ceramics. On Sundays the tour is for free.
A tour through the commercial area
Thanks to the new network of bike lanes, you can go with the bicycles for rent in Valencia up to Colón Street, the shopping street of Valencia. If in addition to doing tourism, you want to stop for some shopping just next to this street it is located the Mercado de Colón, a modernist building from the early 20th century whose architecture is inspired by that of Gaudí. Nowadays, it no longer functions as a market, but it is a space with cafés to drink a horchata or a beer in an exceptional environment. Needless to say, you should take out the camera again and look at all the details the market hides.
From this area you can take two courses on your ride with bicycles for rent in Valencia: going through the gardens of the old river Turia to the City of Arts and Sciences, or crossing the Turia gardens by one of the many bridges and head towards the maritime Valencia. Let’s take this second option. It is best to go by the Avenida del Puerto, a long way commuting the city center directly with the Marina. The interior dock area of the Port has been completely converted into a recreation and leisure area after the celebration of the America’s Cup in Valencia. The Veles e Vents building stands out, which presides over the Marina and from where you will have fabulous views of the entire maritime area.
The Boulevard by the Beach
Next, you have the entire beaches line of Valencia, popularly known as the beaches of Las Arenas and the Malvarrosa. With your bicycles for rent in Valencia take the opportunity to ride up and down the promenade. If you get hungry, you are in the perfect area to taste authentic Valencian paella. You will find along the promenade a multitude of restaurants specialized in Valencian gastronomy. And if you fancy getting to know the more maritime and Castillian Valencia you can go for a riding around the Cabanyal neighbourhood and see its houses with tile facades where formerly lived fishermen and people who worked at the sea.
