With more than 14 years of experience we are professionals at organizing one-day excursions to the outlying cities such as Segovia, El Escorial, Avila, Aranjuez and Toledo. For those with more time to spend discovering all that is fabulous in Spain, we have multi-day guided and self-guided cycling tours along the Camino de Santiago Pilgrim’s Trail, and in the regions around Madrid. Fully supported guided cycling tours through the Wine Regions, Andalusia, the Valencia region, the Fonseca and Conquistadores trails are other essentials in Bravobike’s repertoire. We pride ourselves on an innovative and creative approach allowing us to tailor our tours to meet specific customer and group needs. Bravo Bike is a fully licensed Madrid-based travel agency. « less

We went last week and we completely loved the morning tour around Madrid. The tour guide was really friendly. We found the tour interesting and getting to know Madrid on a bike was really fun!

This was a great tour, small, loved our guide. I think the guide makes the difference and our guide was Sebastian. He was knowledgeable and kind. A great way to see Madrid and some of the majestic look outs and beautiful parks. I recommend this tour.

Can't fault the tour in anyway. Sebastian is a first rate guide. Bikes good. Surprisingly easy cycling and mostly in the shade. We were out in temperatures on 36c and we did not suffer. Our teenagers rated this as the best thing we did while staying in Madrid. We lived it too! Always felt safe and they even bought the... More

Archie (14) and I really enjoyed the tour. Informative, relaxed and great fun. Thanks Sebastian and well done for changing an inner tube in about 4 minutes! None of us really noticed.

Following the advice of some of our Tripadvisor's reviewers, we booked this tour first thing on the first day of our stay in Madrid. It was a really cool way of learning about Madrid's landmark sites and about the layout of the city, which really helped us to decide what to view later in more depth. And it was a... More

Many thanks for your kind comment. I am so pleased that Bravo Bike could accommodate you at the last minute. At this time of the high season, that's not always so easy, so we encourage clients to book well in advance. And indeed, we recommend folk to take the tour as soon as possible after their arrival in the city,... More

I read reviews of the bike tour on Trip Adviser and they all live up to expectations! Sebastian (our tour guide) was so entertaining and knowledgeable, our tour group all got along really well and we all looked out for each other on the roads. The idea of travelling on the actual roads sounds a bit daunting but it's very... More

Many thanks for your detailed and supportive commentary. We are delighted that the tour fully met your expectations, and not only did you learn a lot but you found it a pleasant occasion to socialise. Yes, I am afraid we cannot avoid the occasional flat tyre, but our guides are well trained to deal with these situations promptly and efficiently,... More

Our Bravo Bike tours of Madrid and Segovia were the highlights of our trip to Spain in April 2014. Both tours were exceptional. The tour of Madrid on the first day was the perfect way to learn the city. Our all day-long trip to Segovia a few days later was breathtaking, and a great way to spend time in Spain's... More

Well, many thanks for this very kind review, as well as for your enthusiasm and encouragement. And above all, thanks for dedicating an extra to take our day's excursión out to Segovia. This is something we strongly encourage, since the tour to Segovia adds so much to any perspective on Spanish history, culture and heritage. We also do similar one-day... More

My triplet teenagers and a friend of theirs joined me on Mike's Bike Tour. What a fun morning!Sebastian was a terrific guide, knowledgeable and funny --he made the beautiful city of Madrid come alive. When one of our lesser experienced riders took a spill, Alec and Sebastian stopped and did a thorough patch-up and we were on our way! Caspar... More

Many thanks for your supportive and encouraging review. You highlight one of the biggest challenges for any bike tour operator, which is fine-tuning the pace of the tour to suit the cycling proficiency of all: young or old, experienced or less experienced, and we do try to make sure that each participant on any tour is comfortable on his or...

We did the bike tour a few weeks ago and Sebastian was our guide. He was excellent and very knowledgeable about the sites in Madrid. The roads in Madrid are very flat and there are plenty of bike lanes so safety is not an issue. We had 11 in our group but the pace was fine. You will be driving... More

Thanks very much for your glowing commentary and recommendation. Indeed we are fortunate inasmuch as the city has done a lot to develop the network of cycling lanes and streets where cyclists have priority. When we started our city bike tours here 15 years ago, we certainly did not have this luxury, so your custom adds every bit to our... More

Highly recommend Bravo Bike Tours. I've done a few bike tours over the years and this was the best one: the tour guide was very knowledgable, catered for all fitness levels and interests (including vegetarian), took us to both super tourist and hide in the wall attractions (at least it felt that way) and included a beer at morning tea!
