Matadero - Festibal con B de Bici

It was funny to see a man with a bike tattoo! 










After the succesfull first edition, the organisers of this original Biking meeting point: "Festibal con B de Bici", have decided to renew it, and of course my little madrid and its bike also went there!


The place was Matadero so there I went biking through streets with cool names such as la batalla del Salado (after googleing I've discovered it was a decisive battle for the Reconquista...).

The ride was nice and once in Matadero, it was surprising to see so many bikers, many of them very classy, dressed in elegant 19th or beg 20th cent suits which is an initiative from Tweed Ride Madrid.

Very esthetic, they have a group on Facebook and I can't wait to join them for their next edition in my best fashion vintage outfit!

You could see the most amazing bikes, specially from Retrocycle and activities related to bikes such as workshops for decorating your bike, how to go to work on bike... And cool stuff form bikers shops.
