Cycling in Lisbon

Lisbon is a city full of history, but the city isn't afraid of modernising. The citizens of Lisbon love to meet each other and relax near the banks of the Tagus. If you want to discover the picturesque, small streets with their many cafes and restaurants it's best to do this by foot. For cycling enthusiasts you can get a great view of the city from the Parque Eduardo VII and cycle along the Tagus and the port area to Belém. Don't forget to taste the local pastries. Lisbon offers more than enough unique sights to discover by bike. It may not be a true cycling city, but with a guided bike tour with electrical bicycles you can cycle comfortably through the attractive streets of Lisbon and conquer the seven hills!

Cycling in Lisbon

Would you like to discover this charming city of the 7 hills with its beautiful architecture and vibrant nightlife in a unique way? Although Lisbon isn't ideal to discover by bike, cycling in Lisbon is becoming increasingly popular. The construction of new cycle paths, the adjustment of speed limits for cars and the construction of speed bumps have made cycling much safer. You can easily cycle from Baixa, with the Rossio Square and the royal residence (which dates back to a time when Portugal was not yet a republic) to the historic centre of Descobertas-Belem-Jerónimos. One of the more famous cycle paths in Lisbon is the Poetry Bike Lane, a path that takes you from the Baixa district to Belém along the River Tagus. In the evening you can cycle to Barrio Alto, a Bohemian district, where you can relax and listen to fado music.

Despite recent developments, cycling in Lisbon is not well organised. The traffic is quite chaotic and especially in the center of the city many roads are difficult to ride on with a bike because of the cobblestones. In addition, the hills make an electric bike almost essential if you want to explore Lisbon in a relaxed way by bike. We recommend doing a bike tour with e-bikes or renting e-bikes during your stay, it's simply the best way to explore Lisbon by bike. For experienced cyclists who don't mind a bit of a sweat, Lisbon offers enough challenges to conquer with a regular bicycle, and the rewards are great!
