Will I need to wear a helmet?

Helmets are provided for all free of charge, but are only mandatory for those under 16 years of age.

What is the best day to book my tour?

This tour provides a great overview of the city, however we do discourage guests from reserving immediately after a long-haul flight. Give yourself the afternoon and evening to adjust and avoid any cancellation issues by flight delays and plan on joining us during your second day in Madrid.

We use comfortable, 9 gear city bikes. We also have pedal-assist e-bikes available for an additional €10. You can upgrade when you arrive for your tour!

The tour is about 3 hours long, and we will cover about 6-7.5 miles/9-12 kilometers.

What are the specific covid policies?

Please be prepared to wear a mask when inside our office or any other establishment. Masks are not required while riding. Our bikes and helmets are cleaned and disinfected after each use.

How should I dress?

This won’t be the Tour de France, but appropriate clothing for biking is recommended. We highly discourage wearing flip-flops. Madrid is not entirely flat, so there are some gentle up-hill climbs on the tour.
