We'll be arriving at El Prat airport, Barcelona, late in the evening and are trying to organise our first night in that city. Our bikes will be boxed and after a 24 hour flight we know we'll just want to get to some accommodation and then set ourselves up for touring the following day. Does anyone have any suggestions or information regarding somewhere cheap to stay, taking boxed bikes on public transport, cycling out of Barcelona (we want to leave in a SW direction)? Thanks - and happy cycling!

For SW route from Barcelona check here: https://es.warmshowers.org/node/132531
Ask if you have any questions about the route.
Just a word of advice, the pickpockets in Barcelona are very quick, keep everything close and make sure you hold on to everything all the time. Otherwise, the city is quite safe and worth a few days looking round if you have time.
Thanks for your thoughts, a couple of cycle touring friends have lost everything in Barcelona - bike, bags, the lot! so we know to be attentive.
