Tired of cycling to the pub ? Why not bring the pub to your cycle with our Madrid beer bike ? In the encyclopaedia of unusual transportation, you’ll find this one under “Pisshead Perambulation”. It may not be as chic or speedy as a Ferrari, but there are few better ways to move around the scenic centre of Madrid imbibing the rich cultural heritage of the Spanish capital, while getting it down your neck, big time…
The beer bike routes last approximately one hour. Of course traffic authorities dictate which routes are viable, and many of Madrid’s narrow old streets are out of bounds.
Cerveza cyclists, hit the saddle! This Madrid Beer Bike activity is as gruelling a bike race for plucky stags and hens as you’ll find. It is not uncommon to see competitors brought to their knees by the end, some even vomiting with the exertion having given their all, exhausted, punctured, but true to the Olympic ideal. You’ll definitely want to make sure you arrive well loosened and limbered up for and Madrid beer bike challenge.
And there’s bound to be at least one of your group who’ll emerge with the yellow jersey (possibly a remnant of the mustard from your Big Mac brekky just before climbing into the saddle).
This must be the way Sir Chris Hoy and Bradley Wiggins would have their boozers if they could choose. The Madrid beer bike event 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 its visitors.
These are all-too-often overlooked by pie-eyed stag weekend and hen do groups. Those of you who’ve heard about those daunting continental cycle routes can rest assured however, that there is no mountain stage. YET.
