THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE MOVING TO BARCELONA

WHAT’S BICING ELECTRIC BIKES?

BICING Electric is a brand new service of electric city bikes in Barcelona, which helps you make your longer and up-hill itineraries.

It requires a separate registration, even if you already have a BICING card.

The annual fee is 14,00 € but this time you pay per each itinerary. 

The first half an hour costs 0,45 €. After the first 30 mins, each fraction of 1/2 hour until 2hs costs 0,80 €. In case of surpassing 2hs of the journey, a penalty of 5 € per hour for incorrect use is applied.

What’s curious, BICING electric stations are situated not only on the ground but also in the parking lots underground. So when you see a station on the App and cannot find it around you on the street, look for stairs leading to an underground parking. You will be able to access there only with your electric magnetic card.

The real advantage to electric bikes in my view is efficiency in climbing hills or fighting the wind combined with better range.
