Valencia has become the ultimate bike-city over the past years with its 9 km long Turia park, the many bike lanes and its flat landscape. For this reason we offer Veloretti bikes to rent at YOURS. The lightweight model with a basket in front is ideal to ride through Spain’s most sunny city. To get you started, we would love to share some of our favourite places to visit by bike!
Let’s start with our own neighbourhood Ruzafa, this bikeable area is lovely to start your ride. Let’s pass by Mercado de Ruzafa to maybe grab a coffee on the way at Elixir or to get some fresh fruit at the local stands.
When you reach the end of the Ruzafa district, you are already close to Europe’s longest park, El Jardín del Turia. This old riverbed goes straight from Valencia’s old town all the way down in the direction of the coast. Besides the wonderful green areas of the park, you can also find one of Valencia’s most special highlights, the City of Arts and Sciences. This architectural climax has been built inside the old riverbed by the worldwide famous architect Santiago Calatrava.
From here you can choose whether you prefer to continue going straight to end up at the beach or to turn around and go in the other direction, to Valencia’s old town. Some beautiful historical highlights to pass by in the old centre are Mercado de Colón, El Palacio del Marqués de los Aguas and Torres de Serranos. If you have chosen to go in the other direction, to the beach, don’t miss out on Valencia’s unique neighbourhood El Cabanyal. This old fishermen’s town has a very distinctive character and is definitely worth a visit. Here you might want to pass by Mercabanyal for the sunny rooftop terrace or one of the authentic tapas bars that you can find in the colourful two-story houses that are covered in tiles.
Either way, you will definitely not get bored by biking through Valencia under the Mediterranean sun! Where would you go first?
