Who we are

Who we are?

QKs de Llum (pronunced like “Q.K.S. da loom”), short for “Cuques de Llum” (fireflies in English) is a cycling club, mostly MTB (Mountain Bike), established in Barcelona. The club was founded in 2002 by several businessmen and freelance professionals who love this sport. Since 2002 pedaling at night, probably we are the first night cycling club in Catalonia and Spain.

What we do?

Our weekly agenda is based on MTB rides of a couple of hours every Tuesday and Thursday evening ending in a restaurant where we recover forces and share our experiences. These rides run through the hills near Barcelona and  “Sant Llorenç del Munt i la Serra de l’Obac” National Park.

Saturdays rides are organized with road bike around Terrassa, Sabadell, Granollers, Manresa and other towns in the province of Barcelona.

On Sunday we ride with MTB and often we go through Collserola Sierra (along the north side of Barcelona). Many times we get into the city, crossing the downtown from north to south, up to the Olympic Port (marina), where we have a break to have lunch sharing the sensations experienced during the ride.

In summer we do longer rides (three or four days). We have participated in some of the world’s most famous routes cycling in Catalonia: Volta a la Cerdanya, Pedals de Foc, Tracks del Diable, Pedals d’Occitània, Epic Trail
