By | 24 April, 2019 | 0 comments

With the arrival of spring, one of the best ways to enjoy Madrid and its good weather is with bike tours. We recommend 5 routes for bike enthusiasts in Madrid:

1. Madrid Rio

Madrid has a wonderful boulevard that runs along the Manzanares River and has many points of interest for anyone visiting Madrid. Among them, we find the hermitage of San Antonio de la Florida, decorated with frescoes by Goya, etc.

2. Retiro, Parque del Oeste, and Temple of Debod

One of the wonders of Madrid is its parks. Two of them in particular, Parque del Buen Retiro and Parque del Oeste, form an exceptional alternative to spend an afternoon by bike. Starting with a trip to the Retiro, you can visit the monument to Alfonso XII, the Palacio de Cristal, and the Estanque Grande del Buen Retiro.

3. A route through Madrid Capital

In the city center there are many places of interest; you can start by taking the bike near the hotel at Puerta del Sol and go down to Atocha station, see the Reina Sofía museum, the Paseo del Prado, the Palacio de Cibeles and then cross to the Plaza Mayor and the Palacio Real, continue to Plaza de España and finish the tour with a great view at the Faro de la Moncloa.

4. Cycling Green Belt

The Cycling Green Belt is a more than 60-kilometer route around the city. It is a wonderful trail and it is perfect for those who are used to cycling in the countryside or on the road. It has many sections that can be easily accessed from the center and connects places such as Casa de Campo, El Pardo, and Juan Carlos I Park, among others.

5. Madrid from South to North

If you want to enjoy the diversity of architecture that has this beautiful city, we recommend a route from south to north of Madrid, through the Palace of the Marquis of Villamejor, a building of the late nineteenth century, to the four tallest and most modern skyscrapers in the city.
