I don't know for certain, but I believe there are laws/rules in place which forbid the selling of ices etc from mobile units and that is why you do not see any of the traditional-type ice cream vans around.

Maybe someone a bit better informed could give more info?

Spain is pretty much like all places in that you can do what you like....Until you get caught doing it that is.

I guess you will start up at first to try it out, sort of by not informing the authorities.

I could imagine that some sort of laws / regulations / health issues are strongly enforced (If they know about you) to storing ice creams and lollies in a low temperature due to the high outside temperature, and in Spain when you fancy an ice cream it's always very hot, can a freezer box on a bike cope with this?

Many of the beaches I have been on have had a cafe close by selling drinks, ice's etc and usually / maybe run by a Spaniard, so they could well be your first opposition.

Just a suggestion if you are intent on doing it perhaps ask one of these cafes to supply you with the ice's to re-sell, or sell on the cafes behalf, they sell more, you get the feel to see if it would work.

The biggest reason I can give you as to why they are not there yet is like all business's.....if you can think of it probably so has someone else, and that someone else may have tried it, with no success, no call for it.

Thats not to say it wont work, it could well be one of those idea's that has missed everyone, you know like the "Blindingly obvious"

Italian intelligence chiefs say ISIS have formed 'concrete plans' to pose as refugees serving tourists refreshments or hawking beach accessories and T-shirts on resorts across Europe this summer. German media reports that ISIS is sending jihadists to pretend to sell refreshments before detonating suicide vests and bombs buried under sun loungers at Spanish, French and Italian resorts, include the popular Costa Del Sol in Spain

You might want to put that idea on hold for the time being.

I think ISIS will be the least of your worries if you try flogging ice creams from a bike right under the noses of the plethora of established beach bars/cafes/kiosks etc. already selling them, without getting a licence to operate first in what surely must be a pretty well saturated market.
