Enjoy a scenic guided bike tour through the heart of Madrid and beautiful El Retiro Park. Our first stop is the Puerta del Sol, with its iconic “Statue of the Bear and the Strawberry Tree.” 

For some stops, like the Plaza Mayor, we’ll hop off our bikes to get a closer look at the elaborate sculptures and stunning architecture. With a max of 15 riders, you’ll enjoy individualized attention from your expert guide on this small group bike tour.

As you cycle over toward the park, your guide will point out and share stories about the sights along the way: the beaux-arts Metropolis building, the palaces and fountain in Cibeles Square (and its “Money Heist” connection), a neoclassical gate where the old city walls used to stand, and more.

Inside El Retiro Park, follow your guide along level pathways to see the many beautiful fountains and monuments. At the lovely Crystal Palace, we’ll stop for a quick rest, to refresh on water and drink in those amazing views.

We’ll cycle past a former monastery and a few more sights before ending our Madrid bike tour and visiting a popular pastry shop to fuel up. Chocolatería 1902 is beloved by locals for their churros and hot chocolate, which is exactly what you get to enjoy as a pick-me-up after your ride. Stay as long as you’d like in this charming churrería.
