Today we share the best bike routes in The Lofttown to pedal discovering the magic of Barcelona at your own pace this spring
That Barcelona is full of cyclists is not new. For this reason, just like the great European capitals that promote sustainable transport, the fashion of getting around by bike is increasing every year among Barcelonans who want to take care of the planet and at the same time feel more active.
In this sense, it is not surprising that thousands of bike lanes have been implemented in Barcelona over the last decade, thus making it more accessible to cyclists of all levels, whether for leisure, work or as a means of daily transport.
For this reason, today at The LoftTown, your university residence in the heart of Barcelona, we share a complete post where we tell you which are our favorite routes to go by bike and that you can travel enjoying all the magic of the city. Are you ready to pedal with us? Take note of your next route!
Route 1: For nature lovers
How a disconnection in nature is appreciated. For this reason, we recommend that you start the walk in Plaza España and then head towards the MontjuÏc mountain.
To do this, take the wide avenue that ends at the MNAC building. Once you have crossed Reina Cristina Avenue you will already be at the foot of this impressive building. Then just head down the road that you will see on your right, take energy because it is an uphill for demanding cyclists.
As you advance you will notice the start of the MontjuÏc slope in your legs. If you are an athlete you will see that the challenge will be the maximum and we are sure that you will not abandon the path.
The first stop you will see is the Poble Espanyol, a complex built for the Universal Exhibition of 1929, and which has 117 full-scale buildings and more than 25 local artisans who will teach you the meaning of Spanish culture.
Leaving Poble Espanyol, you will continue the route through the Olympic Stadium, an emblematic venue in the city built exclusively for the Barcelona Olympics in 1992.
Further on, you will arrive at the Botanical Garden, which has more than 10 hectares of gardens that will make you fully connect with nature. To end your tour, we suggest you go to MontjuÏc Castle, where you can see the port and the city’s coastline.
Route 2: For beachgoers
One of the best bike routes around the city is along the sea coast. We encourage you to look from another angle and rediscover the seven most important beaches in the city and all this in less than 30 minutes. We assure you that you will fully enjoy the pleasure of feeling the Mediterranean air on your face.
We recommend you take your bike in the seaside neighborhood of Barceloneta and ride along the entire coastline until you reach the Forum. The trip in total will cost you about 30 minutes, but we recommend you extend it and enjoy the walk by taking breaks at each beach.
Route 3: For urban cyclists
Sightseeing in Barcelona is a must. And for this you don’t have to be a tourist to discover new places in the historic center of Barcelona and you know it very well. Our recommendation is that you do the route of the old town through the small streets of the Gothic, Borne and Barceloneta quarters, since when you ride a bike the sensation is different and you will see these neighborhoods with new eyes.
In the Gothic there are corners that you know, but surely you have never paid much attention to them. That’s why when you do it on the bike you will see that you will feel as if you were inside a movie.
Surely you already knew that Barcino was the old name of the Catalan capital and you have even passed many times in front of the Roman wall of Barcelona, and perhaps you did not know where you were or the importance of this fantastic place.
The Roman wall began to be built in the 1st century, but the remains that are preserved today date from approximately the 3rd and 4th centuries. The Roman wall thus has almost 2,000 years of history and is the largest monument of ancient Barcelona that remains to this day.
We recommend that you start your bike route by the Cathedral, then go to Plaça del Àngel and continue along Sotstinent Navarro street, Plaça del Traginers, Hostal del Sol street, Regomir, Gignàs, Avinyó, Bany nous and finish the tour at Palla street. We assure you that after this tour you will see the old part of the city with different eyes.

Today we tell you the best tips from The LoftTown so that you can prepare for exams with total success
Studying at the university is a continuous evaluation that deserves the best of you to perform at your best. Therefore, it is not necessary to wait for the exam period to be fully prepared for the evaluations, on the contrary, it is highly recommended to start much earlier to achieve the best results.
For that reason, today at The LoftTown, your university residence in Barcelona, we share a list with the best tips so that during exam times you get the results you always wanted.
Are you ready to get the best grades in college with us? Next, take note of 7 important tips that you cannot miss.
Welcome to a new blog post with the best tips for our #TheLoftowners!
Tip 1: Prioritize comfort and privacy
Studying without comfort is inconceivable. Study consists of remaining seated and in the same position for long periods of time. Therefore, we recommend that you find an ideal place to study that gives you total comfort.
Otherwise, you will find yourself in the short term with small physical discomforts that will directly affect your productivity. Another important detail is to have adequate lighting so as not to damage your eyesight by straining it too much while you read.
Tip 2: Say goodbye to distractions
Studying is an act of full concentration. So, keep in mind that when you want to perform at your best you should put aside all kinds of distractions, we are talking mainly about the mobile phone and social networks, unless it is not strictly necessary for your study when you do not have the computer near you.
Likewise, to avoid possible distractions where you live, such as your roommates or your partner, choose a more comfortable option such as coworking spaces or libraries that we have shared with you in previous articles
Tip 3: Choose your study space
Were you a day person or a night owl? You should find out if you are able to concentrate better in the early hours of the morning, during the day, or at night.
It’s also helpful to study at a similar time each day to create a routine. And of course, the time that you are not studying should be dedicated to resting, sleeping well, and a little free time during the day, is not bad to clear your head.
Tip 4: Control your time
Managing your time well is a fundamental task when you are a student. It is useless to leave everything until the end as is usual in many students, for example the day before the exam studying all night, since it is not an intelligent or productive solution and it usually does not give good results.
Our recommendation is that you have a strategic study calendar. This way you can study systematically, assigning a number of topics for each day. In this way, the long-term results will be more than fruitful as well as your exam grades.
Tip 5: Get enough rest
A full and pleasant rest is a synonym of success when you are a student. Sometimes there can come a point where you feel stuck or just tired because you’re pushing yourself harder than you need to. Our recommendation is that you rest well to perform better.
And when we talk about rest, we mean a time for you enjoying a complete disconnection, especially from mobile and social networks. Take note of this advice and you will see how you start to perform better in exams.
Tip 6: Study in a group
They say that the union makes the force. Then, it is the perfect time for you to turn to your classmates to solve doubts and study together. It is proven that sharing knowledge and reviewing at the same time, you learn more and better.
Also, do not forget that in any case what is always important is to have good study material, adequate bibliography, good clear and orderly notes, summaries in which the most relevant topics are collected.
Tip 7: Check every day
Studying is not a mechanical action but on the contrary a discipline as in any other human activity. For this reason, we always recommend reviewing the topics learned every day, even slightly, since this way you will be saving necessary information in your memory
Remember that studying doesn’t have to be difficult and stressful, especially when you’re properly prepared. It is about trusting yourself and all the knowledge you have continuously acquired throughout the academic year.
