Madrid: Cycling Activity Holiday
Spain's buzzing capital
Many people whizz around the city on motos (mopeds), but little has been done to assist cyclists in Madrid and bike lanes are almost non-existent, and the roads are tricky, so ensure that you are a confident cyclist.You can transport your bicycle on the metro from 10am to 12.30pm and after 9pm Mondays to Fridays and all day on weekends and holidays. You can also take your bike aboard cercanías (local trains serving big cities, suburbs and nearby towns) from 10am onwards Monday to Friday and all day at the weekend. The tourist office’s programme of tours also includes cycling excursions in Madrid and there are plenty of places that hire out bicycles to visitors.
