Cycle Chic Breakfast in Barcelona

17 Jun

We’re in Barcelona this weekend, to attend the Cycle Chic Blogger Conference. It also happens to be Barcelona’s bike week. As a part of that bike week, Barcelona Cycle Chic and BACC (Catalunya’s cyclist organisation) organised a ‘Cycle Chic Breakfast’ today.

At 7.00 A.M., they rolled out red carpets on various spots in the city: under the Arc de Triomf, on a square near Passeig de Gracia, and on a junction close to the Sagrada Familia. They set up a tent with food next to the red carpet, and then stopped cycling commuters with a fresh juice and a snack.  The cycling commuters could also have their pictures taken, in a contest to win a vintage bike.

We had the honour of being the photographer at the Sagrada Familia junction. It was a privilige to get close-up looks at such an amount and variety of cyclists in the Barcelona rush hour. Here are some of our favourite shots.
