Lisbon by Bike

Charming Lisbon by Bike

3h- 18km – moderate

Yes, Lisbon can be hilly. But it is not that hilly as you think once if you know where to go. We keep it with only one uphill in the beginning which brings us up to Parque Eduardo VII and an amazing view to the city centre. Once we are up there the tough part is mainly done.

We slowly start our way back down to the river through the beautiful neighbourhoods of Amroeiras and Estrela with typical and traditional portuguese life far away from the tourism crowd. At the neighbourhoods of Estrela and Madragoa we cross some of the most lovely parks of Lisbon, before we see one of Lisbon’s centres of subculture at LX Factory and finally reach Rio Tejo for the easiest and relaxing part along the river to come back to the centre on a cycling lane.

Unfortunately the west side of Lisbon is not equipped with very much cycling lanes, so that we have to stay in the traffic most of the time. But the small lanes are very comfortable to ride, cars are slow and traffic is quiet. The total of 20 km comes with not more than 300m of uphill and should be accessible for everyone who doesn´t consider him-/herself as a couch potato. On this three hours ride surely you will discover zones of the city otherwise you wouldn’t come to and most of Lisbon’s visitors didn’t ever see. But believe me: It´s worth to go

Full Lisbon by Bike

2x 3,5h- 35km – moderate

The historic Lisbon is bordered by two of the most precious cementeries of Europe: Alto Sao Joao in the west and Campo das Prazeres in the East. In between glamorous Avenida da Liberdade divides Lisbon in the middle: The right side with marvelous views, narrow alleys and charming medieval buildings. At the left side are waiting the major buildings, palaces and surprisingly many parks, green zones and calm areas.

With the years we decided that the best way to discover all this are two half day tours:

The first day leads us around the ancient neighbourhoods around the castle: The well-known Alfama waits with roman walls, the cathedral, the characteristic dome of Panteao National and the most famous views down to the city.

The second day brings us to the Lisbon built after the terrible earthquake in 1755. The comercial old town at Baixa Chiado, the glamorous Avenida da Liberdade, noble Rato, diplomatic neighbourhoods around the parliament and ancient but lively parks at Estrela.

Lisbon by Night

2,5h- 12km – moderate/sporty

During the day we avoid the historical parts of Lisbon. But at night is ours! Without the daily rush we can cycle streets in a zone which during the day are inaccessible. When traffic and heat calms down, Alfama, Graca and Mouraria is the best time for the charming oldtown. Join us on a bit different city tour!

Once we climbed up to Lisbons top level, we enjoy the best sunset views and cross a beautiful park in the middle of the oldtown. On our way down we discover the different faces of Lisbon with plenty of culture that has found its placein Portugals capital over the centuries.

Cycling in the dawn or dark is always a bit more complicated and dangerous. You don’t need specific bike skills, but you should be used to cycle and feel comfortable riding in unknown terrain.
