Can I ride on the pavement?
No, you can’t, unless they are wider than 5 meter. There is an extended bike lane network in Barcelona that can get you (almost) anywhere. If not, take the road and maintain on the right side of the street. Traffic is OK in Barcelona, it is very cycle friendly town.
Should I lock my bike?
Yes please, this is extremely important. As a matter of fact, always (this is ALWAYS!) lock the bike (take the frame) to a bike rack. You will find a lot around the city. Never, ever, ever leave your bike unattended and without locking it.

First thing to do is to report it to the police. Contact us as well, we can inform you with the type of bike etc., the police will want to know. We offer an insurance for bike theft. In case you took this, you will be charged 100 euros for the lost of the bike. Without the insurance, we charge 450 euros.
What happens if I have an accident?
We highly recommend that all renters contract their own travel or personal insurance. Pedal Bike Rental is not responsible for any type of accident as described in the rental agreement and rental waiver. If an accident does occur, stay calm and call 112 if you require medical attention. Call us too, we will do anything we can to help you.
