Too long since your last ride? No problem just go to the bike rental (there are plenty of them in Madrid, even in the street!), push the doors and get ready to face an adventure ….
Shimasu drivetrain? , aluminum frame? Wheel diameters? , disk brakes?
All questions will be solved by the athletic biker type clerk. But as what you are looking for is to leisurely move in the city, you can settle for a basic bike and everything will be OK.
But should you have in mind to outskirt the city, or better to try some road travel? Take all the possible advice from the cooperative clerk, get the one that fits… jump on it and start pumping your way!
By the way do not neglect to join a Spanish school to fit your Spanish up as well.
