Bunch of Barcelona Bike Photos

Bikes are beautiful, even when they’re old junkers like most bikes here in Barcelona. Transportation bikes abound with lots of folding bikes, bicing bikes (city bike share), and any other cruiser, mountain bike, ten-speed that is double-locked so it can’t be stolen.  Enjoy these bicicletas bonitas!
