The best way to explore Lisbon!
There is no better way to enjoy a city than riding a bike. In our tours you don´t need to wear Lycra to ride through the city, most people wear comfortable and relaxing clothes, it´s about getting to know new places while doing some workout. When we designed this tour we wanted it to be the most friendly Lisbon bike tour. Cycling Lisbon will help you out offering the best, fastest and funniest way to get to know Lisbon with experienced and knowledgeable guides.
Our Lisbon bike tour will take you to the traditional spots of the old city. Cycling through the most fantastic and remarkable viewpoints of the city while you will be hearing funny episodes that will ignite your imagination about Lisbon’s interesting facts. As it was said by a Cycling Lisbon fan: “This tour is about smiles, not miles”.
The bikes are according to the journey. You can have fun the traditional way, meaning pedaling in short and flat routes, or enjoy the longer tours with e-bikes, called “electric-assist” because that’s what it is; a boost when you need it, and a bike when you don’t. Either ways are worthy, that we have no doubts, and we do believe that you will have a blast riding with our guides in our picked routes. When we were asked about the effort we puted to come up with our routes we simply replied: “not much, afterall it´s our backyard and the place we have been living since we were born…”

But if you want to explore one of the best coast lines in the country, what about a FULL DAY TOUR IN ARRÁBIDA with an electric bike?
