Our Madrid sangria bike (the hens’ cheekier version of the beer bike) not only gets you quaffing that nectar of fruit and wine, it also doubles as the perfect sightseeing tour of central Madrid.
We reckon there is something perfect about the match of a Madrid hen weekend and sangria, the supreme Spanish sauce ! There is no doubt that the Spanish invented sangria with good times, sunshine and smiles in mind.
In the Madrid guidebook, you’ll find this one under “tipsy transport”. It may not be as chic or speedy as a Ferrari, but the Madrid sangria bike is second to none when it comes to the scenic centre of Madrid, guzzling down the sights and imbibing the rich cultural heritage of the Spanish capital.
You can jump on pretty much any day of the year, although times and routes will vary depending on season. You should have no problem building this one onto your weekend schedule however, we are are pretty sure.
The Madrid sangria bike is a heady mix of pedalling and pumping. The squeak of cog and chain combines with the wheezing and slurping of the participants and the odd sing-song as you travel smoothly past the impressive monuments, statues and boulevards that Madrid has to offer, all-too-often overlooked by pie-eyed hen weekenders. Those of you who’ve heard about those daunting continental cycle routes can rest assured however, that there is no mountain stage. YET.
If you’d rather cut out the leg work and just drink, check out our cocktail mixing activity in Madrid, or get your fill of sangria by booking our private hen dinner with strip show – a full on hen night all in one package.
