U-TURN RIDES🇬🇧 Flag for United Kingdom Emoji

There is a raucousness about most big cities, a pulsing, thriving energy of culture, events, theatres and meetups. But for many people, city life can be intimidating, noisy even suffocating. While living in cities like Barcelona can be a wonderful experience studies have shown that people living and working in big cities are 25% more susceptible to stress related illnesses, depression , anxiety and addictions compared to those living more rurally. 

At Flotarium’s U-Turn Rides we offer you an opportunity to escape the hustle and bustle of city life for a while. Enjoy forest trails ,tracks and nature ,while sampling the fresh ,clean air around Cardedeu and the Montseny mountains. Our excursions are on E- mountain bikes so if you’re not so keen on a hard grind and would prefer a gentler cruise, an e-bike will make your day.

As this is an early venture places are limited to two riders per outing. Hopefully we can expand as we go on. You will always be accompanied so no fear of getting lost. It is a donation based event so donations are welcome which will be used for bike maintenance and parts. 10% of all income will be donated to the Fundació de l’Associació Catalana de la Síndrome de Rett.
