I would never have the opportunity to bike in Barcelona, were it not because of Ed and his Cascadian friends. So I am very grateful. It was a very pleasant sunny day when we took the train into Barcelona to rent bikes. Everything opens at 10 AM. So we enjoyed a leisure stroll along Las Ramblas. From the bike rental, we ventured to the water front, then back to some side streets, and enjoyed a nice Spanish lunch, sitting on the sidewalk.
