Bastard takes a bike ride

In Bastardo we love to go for a walk around Madrid, and what better way to do it than by bike. We don’t talk about any bike, in Bastardo we are cool and we have electric bikes.  With them you will be able to enjoy another different experience to know Madrid. It’s also comfortable and sustainable. It’s more! With traffic restrictions in the centre of the capital, it’s easier to visit the most emblematic and cool places in the city.

Take a stroll through the central neighbourhoods of Chueca and Malasaña, stroll through the Retiro Park or the Temple of Debod to take the best photos of Madrid. Ask us and we will inform you about the best options according to your preferences. What we do know is that this means of transport has great advantages for you and what surrounds you.

In first place, the bicycle is the most ecological means of transport of all. Also, with it, you can go from home to work or you can simply use it to take a tour of our neighborhood in less time. It’s easy to park and avoids traffic jams in many places.

Since December, Madrid has closed the centre to traffic, so getting around by bike is one of the best ways of getting around the city centre without having to worry about the car and being able to discover every corner in the purest “Blue Summer” serie  style.

Although the capital may seem dangerous to get around by bicycle, there are more and more bicycle lanes in different areas and it is increasingly accessible and adapted to other means such as scooters. Cycling is not only a more ecological way of discovering Madrid in a different, fun and healthy way. Practice the most bastard tourism cycle!

Towards bastard routes

Now that we’re aware of what these powerful bikes have. We are going to recommend some routes where you can travel Madrid by bike in the coolest way and have a great time with family or friends.

There are three routes you can do on a nice weekend day. We start with the Green Belt, which is one of the most important in Madrid. It has 60 kilometres divided into six national roads. By this route you will not go very far and you can access very beautiful places such as La Casa de Campo, Parque Juan Carlos I or Prado Museum.

If you love nature and tranquillity, the Greenway route of the Tajuña River is your best option. In addition, with our bikes you will not damage the place that surrounds you. It is 49 kilometres long and runs between Arganda del Rey and Ambite. Within this route there are very interesting points that you can visit such as the Arganda Railway Museum, the remains of Perales Castle or the churches of the villages near the route.

Finally, we have a smoother and more central route for you to take a tour of the surroundings near our hostel. It’s 9 kilometres, but surely you’ll marvel at what Madrid has to offer. The tour begins in the Plaza Mayor, then we head to Sun Square and here we can see the famous statue of the bear and the modroño. Then we go through the area of Cibeles and down the Paseo del Prado to Atocha. We turn to Alcalá, go to Gran Vía, pass by Bailén Street and return to our starting point.
