The Hot sweltering summer days of Madrid are here and day trips and sight seeing is on the agenda. How about Renting a Bike and whizzing around the streets of Madrid to see all those Monuments that you have been talking about?

There are lots of places to find Bike Rentals in Madrid and although the prices vary they are not too heavy on the pocket.

If you are not sure where you want to go but feel like Riding a Bike around, a good idea is Juan Carlos Park in the north of Madrid. The Park is definitely Bike riendly with its broad pathways for easy Bike Riding without creating foul ups with walkers. A man made Lake and circular route, plenty of grassy areas to stop and rest and benches to sit and snack on make it an enjoyable couple of hours of exercise and relaxation. read more

There are plenty of opportunities for concerts,cinemas and dance clubs for those who love to hit the town late at night and keep going till the sun rises.

International bands play major Gigs here in Madrid just check out concert dates and who is in town this month.

Madrid is vibrant at night. The Weekend, which unofficially starts on a Thursday in Madrid, is the liveliest. Discos, bars and clubs can be located in some of the trendiest areas of Madrid. Malasaña and its surrounding areas like Chueca (the gay barrio) are the best places to go looking for a dance club or neat little bar that offers good food and friendly atmosphere. Try Tupperware in Malasaña read more

The Madrid Summer has arrived so has the Euro 2012 Football and we are already waiting to see what happens between Spain and Portugal on Wednesday 27th of June 2012. Many people enjoy the atmosphere of a bar when watching football. So, depending on which part of town you are in I can recommend a couple of places that are comfortable and fun to be in.

Café Santa María in Palos de la Frontera

If you happen to be looking for a terrace with a good selection of wide-screen TVs in Palos de la Frontera, then I recommend La Santa María in calle Ancora. The bar is situated on the corner of Paseo del Delicious and is a stones throw from the Metro station Palos de la Frontera. You can easily find a table and good position to sit and watch the Euro 2012 and enjoy the evening warmth of Madrid. The great plus about La Santa María is the service. Its friendly,polite and the owners,  Ángel and Juan , will welcome you with a handshake and smile while serving you a cold beer and free tapa with each new drink. Otherwise the menu of Racíones are varied and I can recommend the kitchen. Who cooks, I dont know, but they serve up a tasty meal. Open all day and the last bar to close at night in the area (02.30 ish.) read more
