|Madrid is beautiful and it is pretty quiet this time of year so obviously I hired a bike and rode all over the city.|
|El Rastro is a Sunday market that has been going for almost 500 years. It gets pretty random. Gas masks anyone? Anyone? Bueller?|
|A heart shaped bump in the road. Parque del Oeste.|
|Outside Otero Bicicletas bike shop.|
|I refuse to go anywhere with out a bit of Herb Lester map porn. Cartographers know where it’s at.|
|They are building shiny new bike lanes all over the city so watch this space.|
|By the end of the weekend I had almost started looking the right way.|
I hired a bike from Rent and Roll who are new kids in town. They are crazy cheap (10 hours for €10) and they throw in baskets, locks and helmets. I can’t big these guys up enough. Plus they are situated right by Parque del Retiro which is a beautiful massive park. Ideal if you don’t want to brave the roads.
