Who likes to stay at home when the sun shines in the beautiful city of Madrid?
The start of summer invites us to explore the streets to relish the weather, and one of the best ways to do this is to travel these routes by bike.
. If you still don’t know la Casa de Campo in Madrid, you can travel on two wheels making a complete route around the area. A total of 17 kilometres to get to know the biggest green space in the city, and by far the most attractive and safe bicycle route to go with your family.
. If you’re looking for green spaces as well as the urban side of the city, there exists a circuit of approximately 64 kilometres that surrounds the city of Madrid and goes through places like ‘Parque Juan Carlos I’, ‘el Parque Lineal del Manzanares’ and the neighbourhood ‘Ciudad Universitaria’. The Green Cycling ring is how this ring road is denominated, and is one of the most frequented by Madrid residents.
. For those who wish to combine sports with other type of entertainment, such as visiting the heart of the city, go shopping or enjoying a moment in a terrace, this bicycle route crosses the centre from north to south from the ‘Plaza de Alonso Martinez’ to the Street Ferrocarril, near the Delicias station. You will be able to walk through the street of Fuencarral, visit ‘la Puerta del Sol’ and immerse yourself in the neighbourhood of Lavapies. This route doesn’t reach a total of 4km and includes some stretches on foot that overlap pedestrian zones, so you will have to step off the bike and stroll around
. Another route we love, and is very appropriate for those who wish to have a nice, enjoyable walk surrounded by nature and a shopping session, is that that includes el ‘Parque del Retiro’ and el barrio Salamanca in its tour. Ideally, you should start pedalling in Atocha station, cross the Retiro, go out through the street O’Donnell and end in la ‘Plaza de Felipe’; this is a total of 4,5km.
. If your excuse to grab a bike is the visit of someone familiar to you, and the wish to visit the city on two wheels, what better than the most historically rich route. That that starts in the ‘Palacio de Oriente’ and reaches the ‘Parque del Retiro’, going through ‘Catedral de La Almudena’, ‘La Plaza Mayor’ and the ‘Palacio del Congreso de los Diputados’, ‘Calle Huertas’, the Prado Museum or the Botanical garden. A brief but intense route.
