6 romantic places to enjoy the sunset in Madrid with your bicycle

13 December 2023

Do you like someone and don’t know how to surprise them?

We tell you how NOT to win her heart: By doing what everyone else does. Seriously, it’s boring and he won’t remember you when he gets home.

Now comes the good part.

If you want to conquer your crush, we recommend you to do something different, original and with a romantic touch (but not obvious).

We talked about doing a bike route to finish in top places watching the sunset in Madrid.

That’s cool and captivating.

In this itinerary we tell you 2 things:

  • Why you will conquer the heart of your boy or girl with this plan.
  • What are the best places to succeed.

The reason why you will triumph: the sunset in Madrid tinges the city with reddish tones

The sunset in Madrid is the most beautiful. We do not accept discussion.

This is the main reason why you will succeed with this plan.

Besides, everyone loves sunsets. They are beautiful and the ones in Madrid have an intense red color that symbolizes love.

A perfect excuse to drop a hint to your companion.

In addition, this type of plan usually works well for several reasons:

  • It is an activity that shows your personality and tastes. Plus, it’s something different that the other person will remember.
  • It is an entertaining plan that helps you get to know the other person.
  • It gives the feeling that you have worked hard to find the route and the sunset. That always adds up.
  • You avoid uncomfortable silences. Pedaling when cycling and watching the sky at sunset is enough (although if you are more of a talker you can also chat as much as you want).

Come on, we’ll tell you our favorite places.

Our favorite places to watch the sunset in Madrid with your bicycle

Before we get into the nitty-gritty, it’s important to keep this in mind:

Calculate your time well to arrive at your destination half an hour before sunset.

This way you will see the tones of the sky change and the experience is much more beautiful. Now yes, the sites…

1. Cerro del Tio Pio Park

It is worth going to Vallecas to see the sunset in this place, which is also known as Parque de las Siete Tetas.

There is a bike path and it is one of the largest green spaces in Madrid.

But what we like the most is its viewpoint in the upper area.

From there you can see the KIO Towers, the Four Towers and Atocha Station.

This is number 1 because it is our favorite place to watch the sunset in Madrid. That is so.

2. King Juan Carlos I Park

The Parque Rey Juan Carlos I has a lot of life for those who love cycling.

You have spectacular sunset views, yes. But you also have other very top options:

  • A lake and an estuary that you can cycle along.
  • Several hectares of olive groves.
  • The garden of the Three Cultures.
  • And even a small greenhouse.

You can leave your bikes parked for a moment to enjoy these last options.

And you can also contemplate the 19 abstract sculptures in this park. If your crush likes art, you’ve got his heart in the pot.

3. Valdebebas Park

The Valdebebas – Felipe VI Forest Park also has a bike lane.

It is the easiest way to avoid getting lost and arrive on time at sunset. If you are looking for a more secluded and quiet place, this is the place for you.

The two key points are these:

  • The Valdebebas viewpoint. The views are beautiful and the photos will look great (every good date should have a good photo).
  • The labyrinth of Valdebebas Park. It is the largest and most original area of this place. An incredible alternative to surprise and do something different.

Let’s go for more.

4. Country House

The Casa de Campo is a mythical place in Madrid.

Getting there by bike is a fun adventure for a romantic and original date.

You have a bike lane called Anillo Verde Ciclista that runs from north to south.

The best place to watch the sunset in Madrid? The surroundings of its large lake. You can even leave the bikes for a moment to take a boat ride.

You will get a scene just as cool as in the Little Mermaid movie.

And if you pass the boats, there is also the option to rest in some of the restaurants or have a picnic.

5. Viewpoint of Valpalomero – El Pardo

The Valpalomero viewpoint is one of the most spectacular.

It is located on El Pardo mountain, northwest of Madrid.

From Moncloa it is 11 kilometers that you can do perfectly by bike.

Our advice?

Follow the Manzanares River, which is an incredible route.

This area is very similar to Casa de Campo. Undoubtedly, a great alternative if you have already been to the previous one.

6. West Park to finish at the Temple of Debod.

Another reference site in Madrid is the Parque del Oeste. From there you can see such iconic places as the Royal Palace.

And if your crush is a fan of La Veneno, you can even go to the plaque in her honor.

Our ideal itinerary is to cycle through the Parque del Oeste to finish at the Temple of Debod.

We confess, the Temple of Debod is quite a busy place.

But it is in a very central area that allows you to go for a drink at the end of the sunset.

If you are looking for comfort, this is your option.
