WE LOVE E-BIKES BECAUSE...
If you like cycling, we highly recommend you to rent an e-bike to visit Santander and surroundings as there are many cycling routes you can take to explore around.

                                                                                  But... what is an e-bike?
 
An e-bike or electric bike is like a bike with pedal assistance. It incorporates an electric motor and a rechargeable battery that feeds it. It can reach up to 25 km/h and can achieve a range of 60- 70 km. This is why it is ideal for everyone, you can enjoy a great cycling day despite you might not take part in sports regularly.

Starting the route in Reina Victoria a variety of beaches can be found; Los Peligros, La Magdalena, Los Bikinis, El Camello, all of which face the Cantabrian Sea. After these, we arrive at the Magdalena Peninsula where the Palacio de la Magdalena is located, which is undoubted, one of the most emblematic icons of Santander. Construction began in 1908 by means of public subscription. The architects Gonzalez de Riancho and Gonzalo Bringas Vega are responsible for this magnificent building. It was the summer residence of the Royal Family and has been declared a historical-artistic monument. The Royal Stables, today, are the headquarters of the prestigious Universidad Internacional Menéndez Pelayo (UIMP).
