On the second Sunday in July, Olesa comes alive with the Matí-Moto motorcycle racing event. Fittingly, a convivial morning snack starts off the event, which brings together motorcycling associations from all over Catalonia, as well as other regions like Valencia and Aragon.
The Matí-Moto, which is held in the Els Closos area of the municipality, is a morning event that includes sports, raffles for visitors, and a fair with stalls mostly related to the world of motorcycles (clothing, spare parts, etc.). But the highlight of the day is the non-competitive race, in which participants ride their bikes around the towns of the region (25 to 35 km).
The Matí-Moto, organized by the Club Esportiu Moter Olesa-nos (CEM), has been celebrated in the town since 2008 and has become a major meeting point for hundreds of motorcycle lovers. It is a day open to everyone, both cycling aficionados and those who simply want to experience and participate in this event.
Olesa de Montserrat is a municipality rich in culture and tradition, located in the foothills of the mountain of Montserrat. Olesa de Montserrat is located in the north of the comarca (county) of Baix Llobregat, in the subcomarca of Montserratí, halfway between Barcelona and the Montserrat Monastery. The natural area of the municipality, with its beautiful and magnificent scenery, is bounded by the Llobregat river and the mountain chains of Sant Salvador de les Espases and Puigventós. Olesa’s roots are markedly agricultural; it is noted in particular for its cultivation of olives of the palomar or Olesan variety, native to the region, from which the famous Olesan oil is extracted.
