The Spanish government is committed to improving cycling conditions throughout the country, leading to an increase in bike paths with easy and understandable signs. Information boards are posted along many of the trails describing the history and culture of each region. Catalonia, Andalusia and Majorca Island are top destinations for biking tours.
