Fantastic day biking around Madrid

A day biking around MadridFantastic day biking around Madrid  |  Madrid, Spain  |  The best decision take was to rent a public bicycle by BiciMAD and biked all over Madrid. The bikes are fantastic and electrically motorized, if you choose to use that feature. Great for a city like Madrid, with so many hills. Let early from the station locate right next to my hotel, the iconic Hotel Ritz by Belmond. A fantastic way to explore the city, at your own pace, having access to places and landmarks in a completely different way, which happen to be a marvelous day. The process is easy, just get your BiciMAD Card, get some credit and start biking. First stop was Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor, Almudena Cathedral, Royal Palace and Plaza España.  Continue reading Fantastic day biking around Madrid
