Rented bicycles on multiple days and went on the city tour in a small group.
The bikes themselves are largely cruiser style bikes and they are in a fairly newish condition.
The location is very convenient to Retiro Park which is a very popular and well used public space which is well worth a visit. Very safe riding here, with one or two (avoidable) rises.
On the city tour, Miguel showed us around the city, introduced some of the places worthy of fuller investigation. The tour was easy going with minimal rises. Anyone under fifty could probably do it, and many over that age too.
Miguel was very pleasant and helpful in explaining the vagaries of Madrid's traffic system, and keeping everyone safe. Another nice thing was that Miguel did not pester at all to take anyone's picture. (Other tours I have been on are "helpful" like this, claiming they will "email the pictures to you". Although they usually do email the pictures, they usually also use the pictures, uninvited, on their own website. It is a gentle duplicity which is tiresome, and diminishes the experience in my view).
Rental was uncomplicated and uninvasive, which was a pleasant departure from some of the policies I have encountered elsewhere. No credit card, or ID theft concerns occurred to us at any time.
Finished up the tour back in Retiro Park with icy cold beer and tapas.
The prices for rental and the tour are very reasonable, and the staff are charming, decent and accommodating.
All good, no downside!
