In addition to all culture and beautiful beaches, Central Portugal appears to be a paradise for cyclists

Sister Marian and brother Frans explored this year the area by bike. Of course you need a bit of condition and the right equipment to do fine in this hilly area. As they  say: "A good decision because with a full breakfast there is enough energy to start the journey with confidence." They are experienced bikers, several times they cycled from the Netherlands to southern France, and Germany to Prague. Say, the sports branch of the family.

Cycling

Lots of cycling possibilities

Although the Portuguese are not very keen cyclists, the number of cycling paths is increasing and the government is working on the promotion of cycling.

If you would like to explore the area by bicycle, you can contact for example Buka Bike, or Bikerent Silvercoast. You can pick up the bikes at their place, but they also deliver the bikes at your holiday rental.

At BikeIberia you can rent a bicycle for the whole of the Iberian peninsula. Please make sure you make your reservation at least 72 hours before rental date.
