Around the date of the feast day of the municipality’s patron saint, the Olesan Cyclists’ Club organizes the Ruta BTT Santa Oliva bike ride, an ideal opportunity to explore our local tracks and trails, enjoy nature and get fit. The bike ride is a conventional 18km circuit, although there is also an extreme circuit for more daring cyclists: 54km, with three laps of the conventional circuit.
On this day, little riders can also take part on a mixed-surface (dirt and asphalt) route, and recover from the ride afterward with a hot chocolate party. The children’s circuit is open to parents who want to accompany their junior bikers.
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.
