Locals and visitors alike have been enjoying bicimad's bike sharing scheme since 2014. What's not to love about this fun, simple and sustainable way of getting around the city? With 7,500 electric bikes and 611 docking stations across Madrid's 21 districts, cycling enthusiasts are enjoying taking in the capital's sites as they move from A to B.

The latest model of electric bikes was launched in Spring 2023. Made from recycled aluminium, they're more manageable, ergonomic and robust, and are designed to improve the users' experience.

So, how exactly does it work?

It's as simple as this:

  • To release a bike, the base must display a green light.
  • To return a bike, the base must display a red light.
  • A blue light means that the bike has been reserved by another user.

Turn on your e-bike using the red ON/OFF button located on the handlebars. The green MODE button regulates the level of electrical assistance, allowing you to choose between the LOW, MED and HIGH options. To check your speed or the battery life, see the bike's LCD screen.

One of the great things about bicimad is that it employs advanced technology, thus making the users' experience easier. You can see, in real time, if there are any bikes available at your nearest pick-up point by checking the bicimad app or the touch screens displayed at all docking stations. So, what are you waiting for? All you have to do is register at any of the stations for an annual pass or an occasional user ticket, which lasts for 1, 3 or 5 days.
