I am from Madrid, love the city and want to share my special addresses. Every day a new idea, place or thing to do in Madrid. Everything has been thoroughly tested but it is only a personal opinion.

Biking - the best way around

Now that it seems that the sun is going to stay... you should avoid public transportations (busy, uncomfortable), taxis (expensive and chatty!), car (nightmare for driving and parking) and give a go to cycling. As we say in Spain: "culo duro sin gastar un duro" or what is the same "firm butt without spending a penny". No need to go to the gym any more and you will be contributing to keep a healthy environment instead of increasing the already strong pollution.. so, grab a helmet, and a good lock (very important) and try to go to work, visit friends, do your shopping on a bike, which, I strongly recommend, must have a basket!

Is this Amsterdam?
If you think that biking is too hard as daily transport, you can also try a hybrid bike with motor which will help through difficult parts of town.

Your bike must be comfortable, better buy it at a special store like LMT racing in Chamartin area, or Retrocycle

If you are not so sure about buying a bike, try the rental service in Atocha http://madridfree.com/bicicletas-a-1-euro/ you pay 1 euro you get an hour or in Principe de Vergara, 30€ for a month: http://bicicritica.ourproject.org.
Be careful, this can also happen!!
