Whilst visiting Madrid last week I was eager to try out BiciMAD, capital’s own electric bicycle sharing program. Madrid is a perfect city size for exploring by bike, although it might at first appear as a challenge cycling along the cars as there aren’t many designated cycle lanes.
Nevertheless, most cyclists I saw there were definitely riding BiciMad’s bikes, and rightly so. These little guys have a boost system and cut the electric thrust at 18 km/h (11 mph) making the hills of the city an easy ride. That was definitely a pleasant surprise and a recommendation for any keen bike lover to try out.
The price for BiciMad was 2 euros for first hour and 4 euros for the following ones, and was totally worth the delightful sunny ride!
