From this point the road continues upstream to Granollers, but not paved and there you go with a mountain bike and a team if click. The best way to get there is from the Forum area, by bike rail in Taulat street.
Bike tour in Tibidabo
If you like road cycling, at Tibidabo roads there are several perfect to design a very complete mountain stage. An itinerary of many possible is up to Tibidabo by arrabassada (M: Penitents, L3). They are 6.9 km to the amusement park. From here you can go to Vallvidrera and make all the way down to Molins de Rei (16 km more) for sector saw little crowded. Another option is to go down to Sant Cugat, where you must pair up Cerdanyola del Vallés along the old road and up the Forat del Vent (Horta road which crosses the Andes). This tour involves about 32 km and ends at the velodrome of Horta.
Bike tour in Carretera de les Aigues (Water Road)
It is an especially popular place among cyclists and runners who use it for walking and training.
The most direct way to get pedaling is along Avenida del Tibidabo , which flows into the street Manuel Arnús , but the slopes are tough. The most scenic and flat side is going towards the Llobregat , arriving at Egham antennas and returning by the same path.
You can also climb up the road from Horta to Cerdanyola del Vallés , known as Forat of Vent, where are many cyclists . Above all you will see a newly built bridge that crosses over the road and into the Paseo de las Aguas . You can also climb the arrabassada or Vallvidrera road , but there are usually many cars. The best way to gain height is rested with the Tibidabo funicular Vallvidrera .
