What you can expect

Lisbon can be hilly but it is not as hilly as you might think. With a local insider to guide you, and a good bike to ride a bicycle tour can be one of the best ways to discover our beautiful Lisboa!

You will be challenged only with a nice uphill to warm up and bring you to an amazing view of the city and the river. After that, we’ll show you the neighborhoods of Amoreiras, Estrela and Madragoa with beautiful sites and tiles to be seen.

The tour also includes Alcântara and the alternative LX Factory, on the way back along the river on a flat cycling lane you will feel the breeze and understand the beauty of the city as the sun shines in the water.

You will meet traditional Portuguese life far away from the tourist crowds, ride through some of the most lovely parks of our city and find out some of the best places in Lisbon that no one told you about. On this three hours ride, you will discover zones of the city which you would't go to otherwise, but I consider as must-gos in Lisbon!

This tour is suitable for anyone - from those that are fit and sportive to the others that don’t ever exercise but still remember how to ride a bike. The total bike ride of 20 km only has about a 300 m of uphill.

E-bikes are also available, just request a personalized offer and I'll arrange it for you.
Let me know if you have any special requests and I can personalize the tour for you.

I´m not a bike mechanic, neither a racing champion. I'm simply a bike lover.

I travelled thousands of kilometer by bike. I ride the city every day and the trails when ever I can. I crossed the European Alps and Moroccan Atlas. I built up travel and mountain bikes and fixed historic bicycles. I built panniers and wrote a guide book. While all this cycling moved more and more to the middle of my life and turned to be my big passion which fulfills my life as much as my flat. A passion which accompanys me all my life long and I love to share with beginners as with experts.

I'm not from Lisbon, not even a portuguese. I'm simply in love with Portugal.

After 10 years of moving, travelling and changing in 2013 I decided to saddle down for a while. Portugal since years had a special attraction which always made me return. With a smoove traffic and vibe, the atlantic sea and a mountainbike paradise just around the corner, Lisbon met all my needs. Therefore the decision where to go was easy to take. Meanwhile, after the first 3 years I feel pretty home in Lisbon. Loving the portuguese way of life and still more the great and plenty nature of this small country. Another love I want to share with the city's visitors, with residents and visitors."
